Polish in 4 Weeks CD-ROM

Hi all,

I just bought the Polish in 4 Weeks today in Warsaw, sealed package and all. I didn't even bend the book to check, I just assumed the CD was inside. Turns out when I got home there is no CD. I will go back to the bookstore tomorrow and complain/whine, but it was their last copy.

Any chance anyone has the .mp3 files ripped and can share them? I was just going to rip the CD to put it on my ipod anyway.

Thanks!

K

I don't know much about how iTunes works . . . you can't export or send/etc. selected files from iTunes, can you?

I think you can- I did it via Skype a long time ago.

Just checked, I don't have it anymore on Itunes and the CD were stolen by my former student:((((((((((( Sorry.

OK, thanks anyway!

Hi again . . .

By some magic of searching and poking around on the internet, I found it. Actually really surprising. No, I don't feel the least bit guilty about downloading because I paid for the book.

Cheers all!

Exactly....!!! When i bought the book, i got the CD with it and you do need it. All the best with the learning...i do think that book is one of the best out there. Though, learning it is 4 weeks, is a BIT of an exageration!!!!!

Thanks for the good wishes :).

I don't plan on learning in 4 weeks, that's forsure. I'm actually starting my next Polish course with real live students and teachers next week, but it's nice to have a small reference for train trips, idle moments, reading in the bathroom, whatever! Doing a little research, it turns out that there are LOTS of intro/basic Polish texts out there. I picked this one from some recommendations and hope I can learn something from it.

I stumbled upon a PDF file called "Polish Grammar in a Nutshell".

It's 95 pages long :P

95 pages? So, it's more like "A short introduction to an even shorter introduction
to Polish grammar in a nutshell - part 1 of 12" ;)

Polish in 4 Weeks is a decent start, but it's pretty weak on Polish grammar. Get a copy of 301 Polish verbs by Lara Janecki. Priceless. Also Hurrah po polsku 1. It's also got a CD, but it's entirely in Pollish, which is a good thing if you're serious about learning.

Actually have Hurrah! already . . . I like it. If I see a copy of 301 verbs someplace I'll pick it up. Now the trick is reading them :)

Hello. I know this is an old post but does anyone have a copy of the cd audio or could point me in the right direction of a download for it? I bought a copy and it arrived today with no cd. I have tried searching but have had no luck.

Many thanks.

Can you not explain the situation to the vendor and have a copy sent? I bought mine from amazon.co.uk many years ago. I still use the book, but I dunno where the cd is. I never needed to use it...

If I find it I'll burn you a copy, but it's probably in a box back in England:(

Ok thanks for that. I got my copy from eBay so will be sending a message to the seller. I don't want to really send the book back if they don't have it as its a nice book! I have found a few links to the cd online but they are all out of date. Thank you anyway.

Managed to solve the problem.
There is a polish in four weeks app that I downloaded and it has all the audio on it. I just recorded it to my phone for use with the book when I'm away from my pad. The app for the pad is basically an electronic version of the book if anyone is interested in it.

I have just checked on Filestube.com - the file is no longer available for download - do you still have your file?

Does anyone know if there is a mac version of the cd rom available and if so where I can get it on line?
