10 Credits SPRING

Aims/Description: Assuming successful completion of the Beginner 1 unit or equivalent, this unit aims to consolidate and expand the general foundation in the language and culture acquired at Beginner's level, providing a solid basis for the next level and enabling learners to cope with a range of predictable, everyday communicative situations encountered when interacting at an elementary level with native speakers during, for instance, a brief visit abroad (CEF level A2). Based on 36 hours of small group (15-20) interactive seminars and tutorials predominantly delivered in the foreign language, the unit also comprises 64 hours of monitored private study. https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/mltc/lfa/courses/polish/beginner_2
