Description

The website created by Małgorzata Januszewicz (an author with experience in teaching Polish as a foreign language and a PhD in the field) offers 23 free lessons for levels A1, A2. Each lesson includes:
a) a recording (50 seconds - 1, 20), which can be downloaded in Mp3 format
b) a transcript of the recording (can be read online and downloaded in pdf format)
c) handouts (pdf)
d) exercises (pdf)

The blog is also very interesting, for those who know Polish at an advanced level. The notes, observations, grammar, vocabulary and writing explanations are accompanied by videos with Polish subtitles. On the blog, the author also proposes lesson plans and materials, which can be very useful for students (for individual study) and teachers of Polish.

Case study

Awaiting validation

Guidelines

The lecturer introduces students to the website and its structure.

Students watch the video and read the text on the website. The lecturer explains certain terms, structures, invites students to consult the PWN dictionaries available online.
Using the pdf material, students fix their specific vocabulary through guided conversation. They are invited to discuss (4-5 minutes each) a film they have seen, a book they have read, following the set points.

Other activities
The university teacher recommends to the students the series of 5 videos made by the author (What is the review, How to write the introduction, Development and description of the film, Opinions about the film, Conclusion).
She/ he suggests that they each write a 150-word text (about a book they have read, a film, a performance) to present in the practical course and in an online group of students.

Comments:
The blog is also very interesting, for those who know Polish at an advanced level. The notes, observations, grammar, vocabulary and writing explanations are accompanied by videos with Polish subtitles. On the blog, the author also proposes lesson plans and materials, which can be very useful for students (for individual study) and teachers of Polish.

This episode is completed with 5 videos, in which the author shows very systematically how a text should be structured, what should be written in introduction, development, conclusion.
From experience, the author knows that writing is generally neglected in teaching Polish as a foreign language (and not only) and she offers very useful teaching materials and suggestions for the readers.
