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, or who have a sufficient knowledge of Polish grammar and a rich enough linguistic repertoire to read and write about Polish short literary texts and newspaper press. A small collection of short stories, on different topics and in different literary styles, 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 prescribed texts, the study of word derivation, as well as the syntax of compound and complex sentences. The texts’ themes include: patriotism, personal integrity, sense of duty, friendship, family relationships, and sacrifice.

The unit uses a variety of delivery modes with a view to encouraging the students to take a proactive role in their learning. The delivery modes include:

• online copies of prescribed texts,
• online audio readings of selected texts (mp3 format),
• scheduled Skype sessions,
• on-campus session (voluntary course revision),
• online course revision material, and
• online mediated communications (Discussion Forum and Coffee Lounge).
