Better source for conversational polish?

Looking for a better source to get basic conversation skills, Duolingo is fantastic but it is setting up a massive framework of language which I love but at the same time I would like to be doing more simple "dialog" practice daily.

There are sites dedicated to putting language learners in touch with each others. Have a look at the list of language exchange sites on the Multilingual learning resources page on the Duolingo Wiki.

I don't know, if it's exactly what you're loooking for, but this memrise's course (https://www.memrise.com/course/1305254/polish-2/) has a lot of useful phrases, that can help you understand Polish and communicate in this language.

Q. Which method could you check if you want to speak like a Polish native and understand their sounds better?

A.

As a learning method for listening and speaking I would advise to have a look at the PimSleur method.

They really break down and analyze the pronunciation of the words.

In this regard really great.

http://www.pimsleur.com/learn-polish

You can download a free 30 minutes trial lesson Polish here:

http://www.pimsleur.com/learn-polish?subscribe=Learn-Polish

Just download it, it is an .mp3 file. Then play it e.g. in VLC Player or Microsoft Windows Media Player, or similar on the Apple Mac.

I have tried it and I am trying it for Russian and was impressed about the emphasis PimSleur lays on good pronunciation.

PimSleur uses the back-chaining method. That is they break the word in syllable parts, start at the end of the word, and work then to the beginning of the word. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Back-chaining

t is a bit expensive though.

So what you can do is to go http://www.audible.com (an Amazon company) then you pay 14.95 dollar per month. The first month should be free. Each month you can choose 1 title for that money. And they also have PimSleur. That is what I am doing for PimSleur Russian. I just checked (search for 'PimSleur Polish') and they also have Polish there.

You can run it on your desktop and or download the Audible app to your mobile device, and then listen.

It should allow you to quickly speak at a good level.

I suggest finding it in a library. I like pimsleur but frankly the price is extortionate.

Well, you can get it for sure for $14.95 per month, first month free. That is what I do for Russian. Every month 5 lessons. And later maybe other languages. Indeed some local libraries might supply it. Check your national libraries possibilities in an online search, e.g. Google.

See the lessons here - http://www.lektorek.org/lektorek/firstyear/ It is built around conversations. No audio recording though.

The "Colloquial Polish" book is also built around conversations and has audio too.
