What the Critics Say

"You listen, repeat, absorb. Keep repeating listening and eventually you will pick up words and phrases. The audio is nice and clear and use of Polish and English speakers convey what you should be looking for and how to say words. Polish is not a particular easy language to master so some patience is required to get on with this. But sticking with it will produce results." (R.Hallet, Cumbria)
"A really enjoyable way to learn the basics before travelling. I had heard that Polish was really hard to learn - particularly the pronunciation - but I have enjoyed this audio course, and not found it difficult at all. I have spent quite a few hilarious journeys to work in the car, listening and practising my Polish pronunciation. Makes the journey fly! Recommended." (M. Gallagher, London)

Excellent

I have been trying to learn Polish for my families benefit. My wife is Polish and her parents cannot speak English at all. I have used another website previously which uses Collins dictionaries, but that really only taught me a great selection of words, however having just completed the first couple of units of this Audiobook I can already use and apply words in sentences, albeit simplistic sentences, definitely a bigger stride towards learning, and a great starter. I just wish I'd found this sooner!

Starts off well.

The course starts off well introducing some basic phrases from the Polish Language. However by the third chapter too much emphasis is placed on remembering difficult vocabulary, most of which will probably never come in useful. Polish is a difficult language to learn for an English speaker and time needs to be given to the student to repeat sounds and phonemes numerous times until the vocabulary becomes stored in the long term memory. Like many audio courses, Collins fails here by expecting too much too soon from the student. Not enough time is given for repetition and a basic structure on which to use the language is not taught well enough (modal verbs etc.).
