Important exams
« on: May 01, 2009, 08:20:22 AM »
Next two weeks I'm taking my exams after graduating High School. What and where I'll study at University depends on their results.

Please pray for me receiving good marks :)

On Wednesday and Thursday I'm taking Maths and Physics - most important for me. BTW I'll can post the English test so that you can realise what an average highschooler in Poland has to know 'bout your language:

part 1
part 2
recording transcriptions(I couldn't find the recordings)

I think it was rather easy. The directions are in Polish but I think you won't need them.
If someone got interested in - ask me.

I'm not surprised. Having been to Poland, I've seen the number of words spelled without vowels, the l that is pronounced like a w, and a y that's pronounced like an a. No wonder it's hard to write.

Congratulations on your results!

Congratulations on your results!

Actually it was not because of spelling  but because of my weak knowledge about books and no skill in interpreting the writer's thoughts.

Luckily I don't need Polish to apply for the studies I want to go.

It is universal.  You should see average English marks around here. :-P

I see. So it's not the Polish language but Polish literature and writing skills. Our English classes are similar here.

It is combined. There are some elements of language, but as I was taking the basic Polish course, we didn't have much of it. We only weren't allowed to make spelling errors :)

On the other hand on extended course phonetics and other strange things are taught.
