Polish 401-403 is a three-quarter sequence of first-year Polish. The objective of the course is that after the whole year’s sequence the students should be able to be creative with the language at the sentence level, handle basic everyday life situations, read simple connected texts dealing with basic personal and social needs, write short simple letters, postcards, diary entries, take down simple notes (e.g. phone messages), etc. The goal is to move from Novice to Intermediate Low/Mid level on the ACTFL Proficiency Scale.There are field trips to the Polish Hall, the Polish store, and the Polish Film Festival. 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 alternate years.
Second-year Polish will be offered Fall 2013.
