great to start with

great course to help get a taste of a language, i love learning bits of languages.. so perfect for me, you would probably need something a bit more comprehensive if you were planning to spend some time in the country but great to see how you like the language :)

Not a good way to begin learning

I have listened to Michel Thomas French and found them fantastic, however, I really struggled with this course so returned it after 30 minutes and an hour of play back. It is not easy to learn because you pause the tape, prepare your phrase, play it, listen to the learners saying phrases that are different to yours, so you go back to understand why you said it wrong then the teacher explains why the student was actually incorrect and so it's confusing learning the wrong thing until she corrects you. Other times students gave answers she said were correct, yet a few sentences previously she explained when to use a word, but then didn't use them. I got totally confused. Second, the phrases aren't useful for beginners. There was no mention of 'hello' 'goodbye' 'how are you' 'this weekend I am going to...' So after 1 hour and a half of Polish, I can say 'It is/this is' 'I have' 'but' and the rest I'm confused about so I'm going to get a tutor instead.
