Tips for learning Polish?

Hi, I was wondering if any Poles could give some advice on learning your language I am jealous of most European countries who have their own language but also learn English as a standard.

I've studied French and German at high school but they never stuck with me. I would really love to learn Polish as a second language. There are a number of reasons for this.

On a personal level I would just love to be able to converse in a language other than my own. I do love English, but think we aren't as lucky as most other nations are bilingual, and English is so widely used we don't need to learn others, but I would like to I've studied English at degree level and do love it, but would like to learn Polish too.

Other reasons are I sometimes wear a 'Polska' t-shirt which was given to me by a family member who visited Krakow. I've been stopped numerous times in town if wearing it, and have been embarrassed not knowing how to respond.

So I would appreciate any advice or tips, as I can't afford expensive software to help at the moment. It is not urgent, but I would like to build some confidence on a basic level, before being in a better situation to perhaps take up a course at Uni.

So thanks and...do widzenia

Hi, maybe check out these

You can find some very basic things there to start with. Anyway it's not easy to learn Polish on your own, the best way would be taking up a course. Here's a nice online free course http://polish.slavic.pitt.edu/.

Good luck! (Powodzenia!)
