Reinforces basic grasp of the language and enlarges vocabulary and command of grammatical patterns beyond the sentence level. Pays special attention to oral communication, listening comprehension, and writing. Helps enable students to move from Novice High to Intermediate Mid/High-level on the ACTFL Proficiency Scale. Second in a sequence of three. Prerequisite: POLSH 404. Offered: W.

Polish 404-406 is a three-quarter sequence of second-year Polish. After the whole year the students should be able to successfully handle most uncomplicated communicative tasks and social situations: initiate, sustain, and close a general conversation, read simple connected texts, write short simple letters, postcards, diary entries, etc. The goal is to move from Novice High to Intermediate Mid/High level on the ACTFL Proficiency Scale.
This class is suitable for a variety of students. Whether you can speak fluently, but don’t know how to write/aren’t sure about the endings, or you’ve had some formal training in Polish but are afraid to talk, you’ll fit in! We work on conversation, grammar, reading, and writing, so students with different backgrounds can benefit.
You are very welcome to come by to check us out! There are also opportunities to volunteer at UW Polish Studies Endowment Committee events.
Please note that first-year and second-year Polish language courses are taught in alternate years.
First-year Polish will be offered Fall 2012.
