START 2 Student Handbook Beginner Polish
After the START 1 textbook, which is a comprehensive material for learning Polish at the A0 level, we publish the next part of the series – the START 2 textbook. Based on the material introduced in START 1 units, we significantly develop all four language skills.
What characterizes the first textbook, i.e. the emphasis on automating full constructions needed in everyday situations, regular phonetics training, or consciously limited presentation of grammatical issues – is systematically developed in the START 2 textbook.
In the first coursebook, introducing the student to the Polish language system, we consciously give up some forms, focusing on automating the use of the most frequented ones. Hence, for example, the decision to present only the singular forms of conjugation. On the other hand, START 2 significantly expands all the skills acquired by the student while working with the START 1 textbook. This can be clearly seen in the example of developing speaking skills. By introducing some small elements, we provide more freedom in speaking and increase the student’s communication abilities.
