We've all travelled abroad with the best of intentions when it comes to speaking the language, only to falter when it comes to the crunch. This quick and constructive course gives you the Polish you need to talk to the locals - and crucially, the confidence to put it into practice.
As well as providing essential vocabulary and phrases, the course also aims to improve your understanding of spoken Polish, so that you can feel sure of yourself in two-way conversations.
Based on the ten situations you are most likely to find yourself in while travelling abroad, the course builds your knowledge and understanding gradually, and is suitable for complete beginners.
A booklet is included, with the dialogues and their English translations. A glossary of the words and phrases used also provides you with a handy phrasebook while you travel.
By the end of this course, you will be at Level A2 of the Common European Framework for Languages: Can understand sentences and frequently used expressions. Can communicate in simple and routine tasks.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

After listening to Pimsleur's Quick and Simple Polish (4 disks - four hours) I can now ask if someone wants to eat and drink in a hotel or restaurant, WOW !!! After listening to only the first hour of this course of three hours it is so obvious that this one is going to teach me how to survive, and actually have a real conversation when i go to Poland. The download booklet is superb and helps you to see how words are actually pronounced, the course also provides the real basics too - numbers - days of the week - currency - and other vital survival skills. all this after only 1 hour, can't wait to get stuck in to the other two hours.
I have bought many learn polish CD's and this one is by far the best. I listen to it on the train to work and within a week I could hold small conversations with my polish boyfriend in his language and with his faamily on skype. They were very impressed I've learned to much. I'm going to poland in a week and feel confident that I will survive.
