/ Polish Language Learning Links
I have been hanging around Polishforums for a month or so now (found it while I was searching for Polish grammar resources), and I have noticed that many people are making posts looking for links and info on Polish language learning resources on the web and these links then get buried again within the threads, so I thought I'd start a thread dedicated to links.
Listed below are the most useful of what I have found so far. I'm sure some of you will know of lots of other sources which you can add in.
Enjoy :) and when learning Polish, odwagi! (courage!)

A children's book in Polish: Wakacje Mikołajka - exists also in its original french - Les Vacances du Petit Nicolas - not sure about english.
The level of language is sufficient for learner's reading practice - this is the book I am currently translating into english as an exercise! And it's a good read too.
Polish only I'm afraid, but relatively easy, and we all have our słownik don't we :)
