Bogna, doctor on swedish course

Current week is very busy. We have more listening exercises, which is good because we had some problems with that. We have also gone through SFI test and realize that we still need to work hard. Yesterday we had to let our imagination goes as we were asked to write an essay. Actually there is not much time to meet with the others after classes

The best thing this week were the presentation our doctors did today. They concerned the equipments or methods they use at work. Really well done! Tomorrow we (among other things) have the weekly test, and then they are off on a well-deserved weekend!

Moving from bottom to top of the Paragona school: First we have the canteen, where the doctors are having breakfast, lunch and dinner. And where we sometimes have a common event like f.ex. the Swedish Lucia procession done by the Polish doctors last christmas. Then on the first floor we have an office and classrooms. In the classrooms there are multimedia facilities, so we can show internet TV, presentations, DVD movies, and play audio for listening exercises.
The classrooms are furthermore decorated to create national atmospheres – like f.ex. the Danish classroom on the first floor where there are postcards, posters and a calendar – visual effects to help create a “little Denmark” in Warsaw. On the first floor one of the classrooms is weekly used for Yoga training for the doctors, some physical exercise is good to ease all the mental work with the new language.
Moving to the second floor we have also an office, classrooms – and a computerroom with internet access and headset. This room is used both in the teaching and for the doctor’s use in between breaks f.ex. On the second floor is right now the Norwegian classes and the Swedish classes.
