INTENSIVE 2-SEMESTER AND 3-SEMESTER POLISH LANGUAGE COURSES
Intensive Polish language courses offered by the Foreign Languages Centre are addressed to those who would like to begin their study programme, taught in Polish, at the University of Gdańsk or another higher education institution and also to those who are interested in learning the Polish language in an intensive way.
The aim of the courses
The aim of the courses is to prepare the participants to use the Polish language at B1 level, which is a prerequisite for starting study programmes taught in Polish.
At the end of each course, there will be a final test assessing the degree to which the specific language competences have been mastered. After successfully passing the test, each participant will obtain a certificate proving that he/she has completed the course. The certificate will also confirm the knowledge of the Polish language.
Mastering practical knowledge of the Polish language will be accompanied by gaining knowledge about the reality of functioning in the higher education environment. Numerous workshops and theme classes will enable the participants to improve their editing skills concerning longer texts, taking notes and conducting official correspondence. The courses will also prepare for public speaking and multimedia presentations.
