I've been here since january but I haven't even tried to learn polish, I got too scared. However, as I mentioned in a previous post, I missed out on a 8000.- a month opportunity because I don't speak polish. So now i'm determined to challenge myself and pick up a working knowledge of Polish in 30 days. Plus I feel like a bastard coming here and expecting to get by with english.just The goal is for me to be able to read children's books in Polish within a month. I might ask for help once in a while with translations etc.

It can be done!

I'm presuming you have cleared your schedule for this month...
Anyway, good luck with that. Hopefully you will be posting regular updates.

At a basic level yes. Don't expect miracles masks98, don't get frustrated and be prepared to put in the necessary time required and good luck (and of course you may Practice Your Polish here ;)

Dude, perhaps a more grown up goal would be more useful? How about something like -

Being able to buy a train ticket
Being able to enquire about a bill
Being able to tell your director to pay you on time

Whatever you choose, good luck :)

You should avoid the black slang in polish.

I would say you are too used to microwave dinners.

I completely agree.
Do you speak any other languages masks98?
One of the things I find about languages is that it is better to do a little all the time than a lot in a small amount of time, that is just for me and may not apply to you.

I wish you luck. I also think Polish forum should run a test for you at the end of the month? ;0)

I agree haha. I thought the same about Spanish and after a month I was able to remember that I have to put an adjective after a noun.

I'm joking. It can be a good motivation, but remember that what counts is an effect, not 31 days.
However, it's also funny and attests that you aren't thinking straight at all, I'm sorry.

Wel it should go without saying that if I can read children's books then I have the grammar and basic vocabulary needed for all the things you mentioned...

I speak French because i Lived in Geneva for 10 years. I used to have a basic grasp of German, completely lost it, but i'm gonna get around to that one too.

And yes I expect someone here to challenge me within a month:)

Daniel temmet learned Icelandic in 7 days.

usually it's better to discuss things which have already been done, not impossible goals.

Masks, you've been living in Warsaw for some time? Surely you know some words already? In which case this thread should be retitled to something like "I'm gonna improve my Polish in a month!"

fair enough! you are at beginner level.
no doubt your partner speaks good English, this can be a deterrent to learning if she is acting as your interpreter.
Duży piwo - even more useful
