Polish Language Basic Guide

Unit 1

I hope that somebody would like to work with me on this Basic Guide to Polish Language - your advice and comments would be already great cooperation.

Or maybe somebody would like to join the project on his own, producing something similar.

Or maybe you send me pictures with what you would like to be the dialog - and I put it Polish.

Nicely done Janusz. :D

Perhaps a movie covering verbs of motion in all tenses, perfective and imperfective versions of each - so that the student could see them in action. Or is this too complex for a Basic guide.

A movie on how to tell the time would be useful,
or one that goes through each of the cases so that the student can compare and contrast the cases in action.

I'm not sure if this is legal in this forum but I want to bump this up because it has helped so much. Verbs have got to be the hardest thing to find in Polish learning. Mostly grammar and nouns.

I really appreciate these vids. I have understood some of the more conversational/situational videos and I am sensing humor (it is hard to sense when you have no idea what they are saying).

This is bloody brilliant!! What a cool idea.

Here are a couple of thoughts:

When I opened it up, I saw that it bwas 3 mins, and I thought - "cool, I could handle one of these a day", but then I realised that there was a lot of grammar.

How about making the conversation - grammar split more like 75-25?

Also, because this is posted on youtube, any captions in the bottom right-hand corner are covered by the youtube logo.

Please, please can we have a chapter on "using the telephone" in Polish?

Let me know if you want any further input on this....

aa it goes a bit fast, but then again i don't know much Polish so that's probably just me...
V. good though. I love the bit where she says "I'm so happy!" (her face...haha...)
