On Saturday, I'll be traveling to Poland again, for a 3 week stretch. Like last year, I'll be taking a Polish language course at the Katolicki Uniwersytet Lubelski (Catholic University of Lublin) in Lublin, Poland. The 9-10 hour plane ride should afford me lots of time to read!
When I took the course last year, I had a really strong grasp on conscious grammar but was rather weak with speaking, understanding and vocabulary. On the first day they give you a placement test, to see what level you should be at. It has a written component, which I did really well on, and an "interview-ish" spoken component, which I bombed. Even so, they placed me in the highest level, bardzo zaadwansowany.
