Reading Authentic Polish, Volume II.
Walczynski, Waldemar
The second volume on reading authentic Polish is the continuation of a supplementary textbook to be used either in the classroom or in independent study. The materials included in it are unaltered authentic texts from Polish newspapers, magazines, and other mass media that provide exposure to the context and format of everyday reading matter. The varied readings, exercises, and suggestions on developing and using reading strategies are intended to help Americans become more skillful in reading Polish. The textbook consists of 20 units in 2 groups, for advanced and advanced-plus proficiency levels on the American Council of the Teaching of Foreign Languages scale. Each unit and accompanying exercises focus on one topic. Topics include: transportation; food; housing; health; commerce; communications; entertainment; education; politics; and environmental conservation. An introductory section discusses the process of reading and describes common reading strategies to be emphasized in the materials. Each unit consists of a series of texts with comprehension exercises. Most texts are photocopies and some have photographs. Answer keys to the exercises, a list of references for each unit, and a list of copyrights for texts are appended. (MSE)
