Do you think that Real Polish is useful?
Well, I was just studying Polish on Duolingo (I spend most of my time with Norwegian, forget about my Polish and Russian level, I love them as well :d) And then I listened to Real Polish while I was cooking. There were some words that I could understand, but mostly I couldn't understand of course. However, Real Polish one of the rare people which uses Paul Pimsleur's method. As a fan of Paul Pimsleur, I really respected him. However I am curious about your thoughts.
Do you think that Paul Pimsleur's method is a good way to learn a language? And does Real Polish use a true method to teach Polish?
I've just listened one podcast from Real Polish and.. I have to say that the speaker is a type of person who changes stress at the end of word.. so be carefull. Correct one is to stress words on the syllable before the last one syllable. He sometimes do stress on the last so it sounds a little like a question. Only in questions should be like that. It's not a really big thing, really..
But it is a good method, I think. You could easier get the pronunciation and grammar by that.
What a funny thing! I'm a native Polish speaker so I understand (of course) everything. This man speaks slower than a normal Polish speaker. But I think listening to podcasts may be useful even if you don't understand a lot. I'm learning Russian and Spanish this way but I listen to radio because people there speak naturally. Maybe try also Easy Polish (because there are subtitles and translation) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FJG9gshSzklist=PLA5UIoabheFN7GIhcfUGQT2S5_U5sWnhK And if you would like to listen to Polish radio I can recommend this: http://www.radioplus.pl/player?select=0id=undefined
Powodzenia w nauce polskiego! :)
Listening to polish music, podcasts or the radio is a great help for learning! I'm really into Eurovision and through that I found some great polish and European artists all singing in their language. through music and speaking you can really get into the way they talk and since most songs have a pretty low level vocabulary picking up words and understanding a bit of what they are singing can help a lot while learning a new language! Good Luck!
i was studying polish 5-6 months ago, but it is very hard. but yeah polish B1 is useful.
What's your native language then? You're probably the first foreigner (from outside of "Slavic universe") who thinks so. :)
My native is Turkish. And yeah we have cases as well but different from Polish.
oh nice, I'm now learning Turkish and find it pretty easy as well (except for the vocabulary that is so different than anything else I've seen up to now) however I'm a beginner so can't say much yet. :)
I can see it, if you need help I would help you happily ^^ Yeah, since our language is Altaic, we have no choice, only %15-%25 of the people in Turkey can speak English anyway. However, it would be easier if you know words from Farsi, Arabic or French. Don't give up and keep on studying ^^
I've enjoyed the Real Polish videos. I don't know how much I've picked up from the videos but I hope it'll help my ear for the Polish language. Understanding spoken Polish is my weakest skill - by a long way.
