Polish pronunciation animations?

I've come across a program, Learn to Speak Spanish, that includes animations showing tongue and lip positioning for pronouncing each sound in Spanish, as below.

Unfortunately, there is not a Learn to Speak Polish version of the software. Does anyone know where to find something similar for learning how to properly pronounce sounds in the Polish language?

Yes, but surprisingly good for learning the subtle differences between similar pronunciations between languages, e.g., tongue placement for the letter "d" in English vs. in Spanish.

Yeah, i've been searching for something like this using search terms like "palatogram" and "vocal tract configuration" but with no results :-/ i guess we'll have to do with just the articulatory descriptions given here and there. But i'm still not sure i'm doing the rz/ź, cz/ć, dż/dź sounds correctly.

While I have a small number myself, as with any language, always be careful of false calques when translating!
Rarely too, is a random dictionary ever completely accurate in terms of register or meaning, since so much is always dependent on context, that is, usage:-)

Perhaps a specific usage aka style manual of Polish for English native speakers might be useful. I know they exist for other languages like German, and are usually published in Britain.

Good hunting and wish I could be of more help.
