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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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!

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

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)

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.
