Polski krok po kroku. POLISH FOR FOREIGNERS COURSEBOOK
Polski krok po kroku A2 is the second part of the series „Polski krok po kroku” and
a continuation of the previous part in its textual and graphic format. There are 23
units which tell us about a group of foreigners who came to Krakow to learn Polish and
get to know Polish culture, history and interesting places. For that reason, the amount
of cultural and historical input is a real asset. The other strengths of the coursebook
are: communicative activities, a wide and useful vocabulary range, an interesting audio
material and a clear presentation of grammar in the form of charts, tables alongside
with exercises in which inductive approach in teaching grammar is used.
The role of the initial lessons is to revise and systematise the material from the first
part of the series in order to facilitate a smooth start to the new coursebook. Revision
exercises are present in further units of the coursebook which give the students an
opportunity to use their already existing knowledge of the language and expand with
new materials. As in the first part of the series, authentic and semi-authentic
recordings (i.e. resembling real life communication) are dominant.
Polski, krok po kroku will immerse you in the Polish environment and you will have no choice but to use Polish all the time, in all types of everyday situations. Together with a group of friends from different countries you will live in Krakow - the most popular city in Poland, a seat of learning, a city of magnificent monuments, rich cultural life and unforgettable atmosphere. You will quickly discover that this is the place for studying Polish and an ideal location for exceptional holidays. Together you will not only learn the language, but also go shopping, eat in restaurants, cook, visit interesting places and discover Polish culture. Living with a Polish family, you will have the chance to experience Polish hospitality and become familiar with Polish customs. Experienced and enthusiastic teachers, who treat their work as a genuine passion, will show you the ins and outs of the Polish language.
Polski, krok po kroku is written only in Polish, as this method of presenting a new language brings the best results. It leads students into the language system in a natural way and from the very start encourages you to speak in Polish. As this handbook constitutes a part of a larger interactive course in Polish, available at e-polish.eu , it can equally be used for studying on your own. The website includes comments in different languages and a multimedia dictionary, which allows you to learn without the help of teachers. Next to each exercise in the handbook there is a number which helps you to find the exercise in the Internet course and check the answers, listen to the recordings or do alternative exercises that will help in consolidating the material or explaining any doubts you may have. A special memorisation system shortens the time necessary for learning new words and phrases. Thanks to the large number of illustrations and audio materials, learning comes naturally - as it does with children, who acquire their mother tongue by observing the world and listening to the sounds that surround them.
