POLSKIE CZYTANKI i POLSKIE CZYTANKI 2 (POLISH READERS)
Are, respectively, 40 and 27 texts to read and listen to for learners of Polish as a foreign language (levels from A1+ to B1+) written for this particular publication.
These books are the fruit of nearly 20 years of the teaching and the methodological work of Wioletta Gurdak and Wojciech Sosnowski, PhD, and were created in response to numerous questions from students and teachers about materials that would allow them to systematize, revise and activate the lexical and grammatical material of the above mentioned levels.
Both books contain texts representing various genres: short story, informative text, dialogue, poem, riddle, text message, blog post, FB events, Skype and WhatsApp conversations.
The materials were tested for several months while working with Slavic and non-Slavic students, both in groups and during individual classes.
