This course aims to develop skills in reading, listening, speaking and writing Polish. It lays emphasis on communication and comprehension skills but also builds on the grammar base acquired in elementary courses. Topics covered earlier will be revised and extended and new themes introduced which will develop understanding of the society and culture of Poland. Students will be expected to use the range of resources available to them in the Language Centre and to communicate with native speakers, wherever possible, in order to develop cultural competence.
