Inter I've found the best way to learn Polish is to actually go there, I made friends with a group of Poles living here in England and last summer we went on a roadtrip all round Poland.

I was only there for 2 weeks but I learnt much more there than I ever would on the internet. Polish is a hard language to learn and you really need to be in Poland as you can get lots of practice, for example asking for things in a shop and using Polish money etc.

What is the best program for learning Polish?

I like Rosetta Stone, although I think it's really best to find a book to go along with it, because it's purely "immersion," with no instructions as to cases and tense and so on. Rosetta Stone along with a nice dense text from the library is working nicely for me, I think, although it's still early - I haven't learned too much yet. :)

Also, the free trial of the Transparent Polish program is nice for learning a bit of vocab and pronounciation.

when i goto the polish dictionary and some of the words i can't find

If she writes it with the Polish letters in an electronic form, you should be able to simply copy & paste them, I can copy & paste Russian letters/words in MS Word (but not in Notepad) and in my browser (Opera), even print them and I don't Russian fonts installed on my computer.

If you actually need to write those Polish letters yourself, there are several threads about installing Polish fonts - just look at the section "General Polish Language"

Or maybe your problem is linked to the declination/conjugation and you are looking for wrong forms - here's an example, from an other thread, of what I mean

'zwrotow'you can't find this one ('zwrotów'), because it's not in it's basic form (singular, first case - denominator), it is 'zwrot' you should be looking for in this case it's not the presence of those letters, that makes it hard to find a word in a dictionary

If you don't need to use Polish fonts too often, and don't want to change any settings on your (or especially on someone else's) computer, you can always use Polish Wikipedia ( - when you type a word they don't have in their definitions, a bigger search window appears and right under the search bar you can see "Klawiaturka:" and then Polish fonts follow

polish grammar is the best because it is drills not tables. I never learned anything from a table. But you go through this and you will see common ending patterns

Yes, it's pretty good - there are also some very concise explanations of cases which are well worth reading.

Merged: Noun declension resource?

hi all, any polish language students out there know of a good resource for polish noun declensions?

i'm thinking of something like the "301 Verbs" style of book. the 301 verbs is perfect for looking up verb tenses that won't stick, now i would LOVE to have something for those noun cases that are constantly slipping. :D any resource, short of me having to simply create a catalogue of noun cases, would be wonderful!

thanks to all for any thoughts you might have on this!

Great online courses!

hi, has a course that you can download onto pdf format and do at your own pace. The situations, conversations and pictures are typical of what you would find if in Poland. It always helps to have a native speaker to check your pronunciation though. If you want to go for rosetta stone I would recommend trying ebay US for 100 pound less!! Or try the old fashioned way of a bottle or two of vodka with some Polish friends, good luck to everyone who wants to learn :-)
