    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!

    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.).

    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.

    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!
