Our Basic Language Program (POL 101, 102, 103, and 104) introduces students to the Polish language and the cultures of countries in which the language is spoken.
Each course in the sequence is a 4-credit hour course that meets three hours a week and includes an online work component. The online work prepares students for class allowing class time to be spent really using language through conversation, games, and other activities!
The things we learn in class provide a strong foundation for advanced classes and study abroad.
