Reading in Polish - PLH312

This distance education unit is designed for non-native speakers of Polish who have already acquired an intermediate level knowledge of the Polish language and who wish to foreground and expand their existing Polish language skills, particularly reading comprehension, before venturing onto the more difficult PLH324 Advanced Polish unit. It focuses on a series of Polish literary and non-literary texts to equip students with skills in critical reading, textual analysis, and writing. Poetry and excerpts from Polish canonical novels will be used for exploring different styles of writing in an analytical way. The unit is divided into two main areas of focus: the first centres around skills in reading and writing about Polish literary texts; the second deals with Polish newspaper articles to help students understand how the information is organized in a distinctive way and how the ideas are conveyed through the deployment of newspaper language to present, and engage with, contemporary issues in Poland. Elements of Polish grammar are interwoven into the texture of the texts studied.
