I've been trying to learn polish for a couple days now, and I think I'm getting the consonants and vowels down. But I would like to here them being pronounced. Can anyone help me out?

Waterstones the bookstore sell a CD of basics. Cannot remember the name. Sorry. Look in the language section. If there is not a local one, try online. Other than that I am absolutely of no use!

They are expensive to buy but you can go to a good library or buy in perhaps on line? There is a series called EuroTalkinteractive-I am sure that you can pick them up in Computerworld but they cost nearly 20 pounds. I have one on Maltese, which cost me one pound at a car boot! They are really good and are easy to download. If you are in the U.K you may be able to get it on order via your central library. It will teach you lots of basic words and you can slow down the speed of the recordings. There are about three different levels but for you, the basic one would be just fine.

I think that most courses which are teaching basic vocabulary will sound a bit robotic but they seem to be good at teaching someone the basics of at least how a language sounds.

There is also a Teach Yourself book with a set of tapes and a Colloquial Polish by B.W. Mazur also with tapes that is very good. I bought a brand new copy, unused for £1 pound fifty pence at my local car boot! I will never use it and you can have it for free if you want. I have even got Learn Polish Now for a computer which I never use and you can have it too. I have loads of stuff, which I will never use again and will probably throw away.

Sounded robotic to me

Should be just up your street then!

I simply suggested a good starting point in learning Polish words-a course entitled Eurotalkinteractive and you say that you do not recommend the course as it sounds robotic. Earlier, Matyjasz said that my Polish was good but sounded robotic so I imagine that your words are a copy of his. That is all!

i dont copy michal as i dont follow someone else - personally i made the remark as i have used the euro talk disk for beginners and basically i found it to be robotic sounding when i prefer native sounding material and in short i merely commented that i would not recommend it no one has to listen to anyones recommendations thats why they are there for others to make their own minds up.

It is a very good course to begin your studies of Polish and everybody has to start somewhere. Otherwise people just worry so much about which course that they never start at all. The best courses are the old ones anyway, long out of print. In Poland they produced some very fine courses with records (I still have a set). They are very good and I have never heard or seen anything better nowadays. When England had the old G.C.E. 'O'' levels standards were higher but since the emergance of the G.C.S.E.'s in the 1990's books have been rewritten in a somewhat childish fashion and that is a real shame. The original Teach Yourself book (no tapes) was a very good bookbeing written during the war years. In Moscow I had a copy annd each evening I would sit with my Polish girl friend and we would do a chapter together. People think that money and technology will buy them success but it is the work that they put in themselves that counts.

i dont dispute that in the slightest, i learn via once a week lessons at college which touch on reading and listening this year than the speaking area.

I have the czesc jak sie masz book and cd and the pimsuelr one (which i got on ebay).

but it is the work that they put in themselves that counts

precisely and amen!

You are lucky if you have a college, which offers lessons. In London it may be easy but otherwise around the U.K. I would think that there are very few courses which would attract enough students to keep them going for long. At Guildford College, I was told by the receptionist, who was Polish herself until she left for another job, that the college is to start lessons in the next acamemic year. Motivation is the one thing above all other things, which will spell final success or failure. I had lessons in Guildford each evening with my Polish wife in the local pub, I would read a chapter and then we would sit down together and go through all the things I found difficult. It worked for me at both 'O' and 'A' level, though this is years ago. I think that maybe I married a Polish teacher rather than a wife! I do not have that 'get up and go' now though.

Yes, but byki.com is very very limited, better than nothing for a few of the very basics but you will not learn to speak a language from that material.

indeed, find a partner from that region that is the best personal lesson you will ever get!
