Sorry for the late notice, but we are trying out Monday nights for our meetup. I picked a location that is a couple of blocks away from the Blue, Brown, Green, and Red lines. It looks like there are some $6 parking options within 3 to 4 blocks of Panera, as well. (708 E State might be the closest, but Chicago.bestparking.com is a good source to look for other options in case that lot is full).
We are slowly working our way through Prof. Swan's online first year Polish class: http://polish.slavic.pitt.edu/firstyear/ Currently, we are just starting on Lesson 7, but can accommodate complete beginners. We typically practice basic sayings/basic conversation and work through some of the lesson exercises. Hope to speak some Polish with you soon!
Look for the people with Polish dictionaries. If you are having trouble finding us, you can call[masked]-8576.
