A slow and casual method to get started learning Polish?

Hello,

Quick question:

I am EXTREMELY busy with my military pilot training..definitely far too busy to sit down and study language books and tapes. I am, however, interested in learning the language of my ethnic background (Polish, obviously). Does anyone know of any slow and casual method to get started? For example, meeting up with someone for a coffee or drink once a week and just learning through interaction and conversation.

Just a thought.

I'd suggest a polish girlfriend then. Unless, you don't have a time for that either? :)

Where do you live?

Texas/Oklahoma border

.. or hire a tutor

That'd be a bit pricey and involved for the casual way I'd like to get started...again, just due to time constraints and the fact that most of my brain bytes are busy with flying :P

I'd suggest a polish girlfriend then.

I've thought about that, haha. But I don't think that my current GF would be too happy about that......

Suggest you try the University of Pittsburgh at polish.slavic.pitt.edu/

Has a first year course you can do at your leisure. On line pronuciations, dictionary, etc.

Good place to start w/o cost.
