Advanced Polish - PLH324

This distance education unit is designed for students with an intermediate level of Polish language skills who have completed PLH221 and/or PLH312 and have a sufficient knowledge of Polish grammar and a linguistic repertoire that enables them to read and write about Polish short literary texts and newspaper articles. A small collection of short stories on different topics are used to enhance students’ competence in Polish and to develop skills in critical reading and textual analysis, and more broadly to equip them for further studies in Polish. The unit focusses on intensive vocabulary development based on the set texts, the study of word derivation, as well as the syntax of compound and complex sentences. The dual focus on language study and textual analysis aims to encourage students to look closely at the relationship between authors and their texts, by examining the manner in which linguistic and literary features participate in communicating ideas and constructing meaning. The texts’ themes include: patriotism, personal integrity, sense of duty, friendship, family relationships and sacrifice.
