I would like to give a Polish friend who wants to start learning English, an English language book, ideally with downloadable audio.
Polish - English.
Does any one know if this exists?. What could be recommended?. And where I could buy it?

We are in Germany but most purchases are online anyway.

Many thanks in advance.

Try bookbox! It's free, easily downloadable and offers non-stop, uninterrupted exposure to English, for that matter, almost any one of hundreds of other languages as well:-)

Incidentally, where in Germany do you live/are you from?

I spent a short period in Bavaria, late 90's or so, but at the time, didn't come into contact with all that many "Zuag'roascht'r" (Zugereiste), much less native Polish speakers.

It might be easier at the beginning for your friend to learn from someone with English rather than Polish as their mother tongue. If the teacher makes basic errors, your friend will eventually have to unlearn them and this can only sow confusion (Drachensaat ernten) later on:-)

On the other hand, English is so widely used in Europe, this probably won't present too much difficulty. In addition, sometimes a non-native speaking teacher of a foreign language might understand the mistakes the person learning it makes, since they probably have the same confusions themselves.

Where then in Bavaria are you living? As I said, I spent time there, but exclusively in and outside Munich:-)

Oh yes, I recall there was a fairly large multi-lang. learning center not far from my friend's flat called Colloquaeia, if I'm not mistaken. Name ring a bell?

Pretty sure they teach all languages, if they're still around.

Best of luck once again!
