Summary/Abstract: When briefly presenting the certification system of the command of Polish as a foreign language which has been operating since 2004, the author concentrates on analysing the quality of the Polish language used by the foreigners taking certificate examinations. In the analysis, he uses the data from 2011 which have never been employed for this purpose thus far. In that year, the examinations were taken by 525 foreigners at three proficiency levels: B1 (176 persons), B2 (269) and C2 (80). The author then analyses the quality of the Polish language used by the foreigners depending on the proficiency level and the obtained overall grade and proceeds to discussing the level of command of the individual skills (listening comprehension, grammatical correctness, reading comprehension, writing, and speaking Polish) at each proficiency level. During the analysis, the author uses the average number of points obtained by the examinees at the individual levels. In the final part of this paper, he departs from the averaged data and presents three selected writing assignments from B2 level, which he subjects to quality assessment, at the same time presenting their evaluation methods.
