Critic reviews

"You listen, repeat, absorb. Keep repeating listening and eventually you will pick up words and phrases. The audio is nice and clear and use of Polish and English speakers convey what you should be looking for and how to say words. Polish is not a particular easy language to master so some patience is required to get on with this. But sticking with it will produce results." (R.Hallet, Cumbria)
"A really enjoyable way to learn the basics before travelling. I had heard that Polish was really hard to learn - particularly the pronunciation - but I have enjoyed this audio course, and not found it difficult at all. I have spent quite a few hilarious journeys to work in the car, listening and practising my Polish pronunciation. Makes the journey fly! Recommended." (M. Gallagher, London)

Excellent

I have been trying to learn Polish for my families benefit. My wife is Polish and her parents cannot speak English at all. I have used another website previously which uses Collins dictionaries, but that really only taught me a great selection of words, however having just completed the first couple of units of this Audiobook I can already use and apply words in sentences, albeit simplistic sentences, definitely a bigger stride towards learning, and a great starter. I just wish I'd found this sooner!

excellent book, I remember the phrases so easily

excellent book, I remembered the phrases so easily and understand the basics but coupled with the thousand words in polish picture book, I am able to quickly make up sentences by adding 'alternative words' to the phrase or join them up together.

I only had to listen to the book at night once but I recommend listening again until you fully understand, I will be using this on my next travels to Poland which I'm booking right now.

really enjoyed this and another book from Audible.

Very Good

If you could sum up Polish Easy Learning Audio Course in three words, what would they be?

Very good for a complete beginner to learn basic phrases. However, not all are completely correct.

What does Collins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I can listen to it on my way to/from work, walking etc. Not so easy to read a book when walking. Really useful for pronunciation.

Helpful and very well structured.

Very well structured in order to learn and consolidate some key words and phrases. Some particularly helpful asides to explain meaning and usage.

Starts off well.

The course starts off well introducing some basic phrases from the Polish Language. However by the third chapter too much emphasis is placed on remembering difficult vocabulary, most of which will probably never come in useful. Polish is a difficult language to learn for an English speaker and time needs to be given to the student to repeat sounds and phonemes numerous times until the vocabulary becomes stored in the long term memory. Like many audio courses, Collins fails here by expecting too much too soon from the student. Not enough time is given for repetition and a basic structure on which to use the language is not taught well enough (modal verbs etc.).

Stay away from Audible

What disappointed you about Polish Easy Learning Audio Course?

I can not use it. Had to install an application that I do not want and usually refuse to, and then I have got a one file download that does not play on the first attempt and certainly is not usable on my way to work.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Don't know did not manage to get it working the way I needn it.

This audio course is pertinent for your trip.

What a great course for securing the basics of the language. One should be able to score a lot of hot women with the vocabulary within the audio parameters. Thank you Collins Easy Listening Polish!
