All useful Polish Duo discussions in one post!

Hi! Recently I thought, that there are so many questions that keep repeating, which could be avoided at least in some part if people had easier access to some great, helpful discussions where many things have already been thoroughly discussed. So I decided to go through all (I hope) topics, and make a list of such topics, so all of it could be in one place. There is some wonderful stuff here that I haven’t seen before simply because it’s several months old and it got lost in a pile of newer posts. I don't have enough time to check every discussion thoroughly, so I can't assess how helpful every one of those is, and the links used in some of them are bound to repeat themselves. Still I hope you will find this little list helpful. If you find something else that you think should be added to this list, please don’t hesitate to comment.

I really appreaciate you spend your time to put this together!

Thanks for this. There are several discussions of Polish pronunciation, but no indication when (or if) spoken Polish is introduced to the course. When should I expect that?

July 12, 2016

You mean the speech recognition? As far as I know, this is only up to the company itself and there's nothing the course developers can do about it.

July 12, 2016

Thanks, Jellei. Yes "speech recognition" is the phrase I was looking for. It's been a feature in each of the other courses I've tackled, so I just assumed it would be here as well, but was starting to wonder.

July 13, 2016

This is my understanding too.

Dziękuję bardzo za pomoc :P

I know I am late but why is the Polish Ball's flag upside down? Wouldn't that be Indonesian Ball, I see this everywhere online and it's weird haha

February 4, 2019

Just the way it is. It's one of the conventions of Polandball to draw Poland upside-down.

Very useful! Dziekuje bardzo!

July 21, 2016

Dziękuję bardzo! By the way: Is there a plan to fill up the course with more explanations? Actually only the first section has some grammatical explanations. It would be very useful if all sections would have such explanations, I think.

November 17, 2016

There is a plan to fill the new Tree 2.0 with explanations. We cannot spend hours of our time on Tips & Notes that will soon become obsolete as we are developing a totally new, better tree that will be different in so many aspects. That is also one of the reasons this post was created, to help finding explanations in a different way.

November 17, 2016

Hi Jellei, nice to read. I suspect I would be through the actual tree and working more with other material then, but I am sure, this would be helpful for all others. So far I saw these explanations only in the English-Polish tree and found this additional informations and explanations about the main points of every step very useful.

Will be some explanations, why the tree will be renewed? Are there any informations about this? Will only the English-Polish tree be renewed or also other languages?

November 17, 2016

You can read more about it here. This is just a Polish thing, we have no idea what the others are planning.

November 19, 2016

Thank you! So happy that I stumbled upon this thread. I can't wait for Tree 2.0 to appear! Would there be anything that we can get our hands on right now already? E. g. , as beta testers? I would already be super happy with access to only a fragment of the tree!

November 21, 2016

It's waaaay too early to say anything about such stuff ;)

November 25, 2016

This is probably the most important topic ever done for Polish learners. I salute you!

June 6, 2017

Thank you! I really appreciate everything you've done here. It's helped me so much!!

I don't suppose for the "difference between words" section you could explain lubić and podobać się ( and word order... I never know whether to put mi się before of after podoba)

January 23, 2018

March 12, 2017

Jellei: I'm going to Krakow Poland for 2 months starting In April. I will be attending yoga classes as a way to meet Poles. I was hoping you or someone else could provide basic instructions in Polish to help me understand the poses/exercise instructions. I've been practicing Polish on Duolingo and have a basic understanding of Polish, reached 28% proficiency on Duolingo scale but woefully inadequate for living there and for the class. it will be fun to see what instructions if any, could be provided

March 16, 2017

i really appreciate the time that you spend to explain and share all these informations , thank you so sooooo much ! , niech cię Bóg błogosławi :)

April 7, 2017

Thank you for sharing!!

Thankyou this is very helpful. I love the Polish music part because learing the culture of a country is just as good as learning the language of a country.

Czy to jednak poprawne, jeśli mówię "to jest odpowieścią"? Dlaczego tak, dlaczego nie?

October 20, 2017

Firstly, "odpowieścią" is not a word, so the question is whether you meant "opowieścią" (a story) or "odpowiedzią" (an answer)...

I can imagine "To jest odpowiedzią" to work in a limited context ("to" would have to refer to something very specific and known, like "this article that you just started reading is an answer to...", but mostly that would be wrong.
