A Polish Language Course that Works
Piotr has a well established and effective system of learning, which includes reading simple stories, listening, answering questions, and then repeating. Repetition breeds familiarity, and that’s what one needs to learn a language. His stories are short and enjoyable to read, which increases my motivation to keep going with the next lessons. Importantly for me is Piotr’s distinct pronunciation of each word and of all syllables in a word. His pronunciation clarity is critical, since Polish has many sounds that we Americans do not have.
Let’s talk about grammar. Piotr masterfully introduces words, uses them repetitively, in different contexts, and from different perspectives. There is no memorizing dreadful grammatical rules, which do not make sense anyway until you see and use them in context.
Piotr’s personality exudes happiness and a sense of optimism, and that gives the learner motivation to return to the lessons. You can reach him if you have a question, and he’s always helpful and kind.
Learning Polish is precious to me, since I am of Polish descent and very proud of this. I am finally learning! It’s a course that works!
Great for beginners and Intermediate Polish Language learners
Great resource for Polish language learners. You get to hear the language from a native speaker, but it is slow and clear enough for beginers to understand. Increase your vocabulary and improve grammar naturally without studying flash cards or grammar books. And the topics are interesting which always helps maintain my interest.
Beginner to Intermediate
I’ve been struggling to move from what I like to call an “advanced beginner” to a confident intermediate. The host speaks slowly enough the words don’t sound jumbled. There’s a good mixture of basic and more advanced vocabulary. Because the episodes are usually about common-knowledge topics, any unknown vocabulary can be figured out with context clues. Dziękuję!
