Poles Aloud Show – 29th Nov & 1st Dec

 

Time for Polish Halloween this week. At the beginning of November Poles celebrated All Saints’ Day in a calm and peaceful manner, remembering all those loved ones who passed away. The end of November marks a change in tone as Poles gather around to discover what the future holds for them and join in with the parties. Today we’re going to talk about Andrzejki and Katarzynki night and how the Polish tradition makes them a unique celebration worth getting to know.

As Poland celebrated Teachers’ Day on 14th October, we’re reviewing and comparing our own experiences of education and teaching styles both in Poland and England. In the second part of the show we’re looking at the ways of learning foreign languages that sound rather aspirational – e.g. reading original texts in the language you’re learning – and try to figure out if they work.3407
