Polish 402 is the second class in a three-quarter sequence of first-year (beginning) Polish. 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 letters, postcards, take down simple notes (e.g., phone messages), etc. The goal is to move from Novice to Novice High/Intermediate Low 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 in alternate years.
Second-year Polish will be offered Fall 2013.
Prerequisite: 401 or permission of instructor.
