gigadictionary.org - contains conjugation and declension tables as well as translations to English and other languages. Can be edited by anyone who's interested. It also can be displayed in English, Polish and German.

I thought I'd contribute by saying that Oscar Swan's English <> Polish Dictionary at polish.slavic.pitt.edu/~swan/beta/ is, bar none, THE best Polish dictionary. It has declension tables for verbs, noun, adjectives, pronouns and can find conjugated forms of words without a problem. But what really separates it is that it provides a real dictionary definition with examples and grammar info. Most online dictionaries just you give 2 words (if you're lucky), which I've often found to be wrong.

WOW!!

Thanks cjjc and everyone else! Some of these I had already come across, and have used but there are alot that I haven't. I can see some serious web surfing coming on!

A couple of other good ones that I use are byki.com and quizlet.com

With byki.com you can get free language learning software with a limited amount of lists which you can learn, but there are alot more lists available to download. This is what I actually started with, and have actually bought the full blown version now.

With quizlet.com you can use other peoples flashcards or you can make your own and they are basically learning drills. You go through all the cards and give your answers. When you have done them all, you go through any that you got wrong, and keep on doing it until you get them all right. It can become quite addictive!

Lately I've been using this dictionary quit a lot: slowniki.gazeta.pl

It has a nice, clean layout, plenty of real-life examples, and it loads faster, is more reliable and less buggy than ling.pl. I also like the fact that it always tells whether a verb is imperfective or perfective, and what the perfective equivalent of an imperfective verb is and vice versa.

i didn't read through the entire thread, but I have a question:

anyone know of good exercise books? i really enjoy exercise books, but they just don't seem to have them for polish, at least not that I can find. basically, I'm looking for something like a Murphy's book for learning Polish.

i spend so much time in the classroom teaching along with tramming, busing, walking, etc., that I have limited opportunities to speak polish, so having an exercise book where I can at least improve my vocabulary grammar would be ideal, plus, I enjoy it.

For learning vocabulary there's a good program called Anki: ichi2.net/anki/

My own Polish-English deck is available for download inside it (Filemenu -> Download -> Shared Deck). As of yet it contains 7200 entries and growing. It contains not only words but also sentences, expressions, phrases and special sentences for practicing cases.

I'm not sure if this link has been posted elsewhere on the site, but I thought it worth including for those of us learning the language alone...wwitv.com/television/168.htm

I wanted to say Thank You to everyone on this thread. All the comments have helped me a lot. I have been learning the Polish language and I use the book:

Cześć, Jak się masz? ISBN: 83-242-0633-7 ( A polish langauge textbook- level Introduction to Polish A1).
It is really great. It explains everything and comes with a CD for Pronunciation. It also has 2 other levels which I will be using.
I have checked out some and will check out others.
Also, the University of Florida in Gainesville has a wonderful Polish Program. I will check it out more but if anyone is close to the University it can be of help Im sure.

Came across this website the other day. supermemo.net. You can enroll for a beginners online course. It cost EUR 19. It is quiet good as it covers conversations, vocabulary, and grammar. You can see a demo to see if it would be of any use to you.

I bought the intermediate book in Empik the other day. And there is a voucher in the book which allows you to enroll for an online course for free so i enrolled in the Beginners course. Name of the book is 'Polski bez problemu'.

I downloaded this programme: byki.com

It covers different topics and is really useful for vocabulary. I have already learned how to spell some things as well as say them.

It also tests you so you cannot be lazy :)

2b.nepco.org.uk/issues/ - 2B North East

Online magazine for Polish residents in the North East.
Quite good for reading practice as every article in Polish has the English version on the facing page.

Most of the links in this thread are useful.

However, it's good to have a course book + CD. It gives a good base to start from.

Learning Polish - Books/resources you can recommend?

Dobry Wieczór!

Mówię tylko troche po polsku. I want to learn more Polish, but I don't know how to go about doing it. I'm only 18. I've looked at language course books and tapes, and they all look a bit uninteresting.

I can get my parents to talk to me in Polish exclusively, i'm sure i'll pick up some bits, but I wanted a.. well... fuller package really. I was thinking about perhaps books that kids in Poland (and indeed kids here at Polska szkoła (like my cousin)) use. They'd be the sort of books I can just build up knowledge from rather than reading lists of words (like I said - language course books look boring. they seem to consist of vocab lists like a. ale. bułka. bajka. etc.)

Does anyone have

a) any recommendations for books I could learn from (as in proper children's textbooks)
b) any recommendations for websites I can order them from, that will take payment from an english credit/debit card and will deliver to england

Any help is appreciated!
Dziękuje bardzo!!

Merged: New(ish) Blog about learning Polish

Hi all,

I've been writing a blog (like so many of us have!) about learning Polish in Warsaw. The emphasis is on language, and although it's about MY experience learning the language I think you might find it useful.

Find it at borsuknapradze.blogspot.com

And let me know what you think! I keep forgetting the Polishforums has such an active language section and I should read here more often. I'm starting a new Polish course today so I'm poised for more improvement soon!

Pozdrawiam,

Kolin

The 'Hurra Po Polsku' books seem quite good. Were I a more diligent learner who opened mine more often I could give a better assessment, but I'm lazy. This is my fault, not that of the books.

Hurra po polsku is all in Polish and intended for classroom and teacher.

A couple of inexpensive Polish books in English for self-learners, made in Poland, are "Polish in four weeks" and Supermemo's "Polski bez problemu!". Both have 2-3 levels.
