My wife is Polish and I wanted the best program to learn the language. I considered Rosetta Stone since there is so much hype over it, however most of the review websites I visited recommended Pimsleur. I couldn't be happier with my choice. During the lesson, you will listen to native Polish speakers, and there will also be a narrator that will ask you questions. The fact that the lessons make you think and come up with phrases instead of simply memorizing them is what I love about this program. I am half way through the 30 lessons and my wife is impressed with my progress. The lessons are also great to listen to while doing other things around the house, such as dishes or laundry. I just wish the Polish language had a next level once I am finished with the 30 lessons in level 1.

I use the download in the car with earphones when traffic permits, usually in the morning. If I do not get through the lesson in one trip I finish later in the day at home. I usually do each lesson twice, on sequential days, to allow for the lesson to sink in overnight.

    Comments about Polish Phase 1, Units 1-30:

    I like that this system allows me to get
    familiar with the pronunciation and dialect.
    This is a whole new language for me since it is
    not Latin based. It gets easier from lesson to
    lesson.

      Comments about Polish Phase 1, Units 1-30:

      My daughter-in-law is Polish. Even though she speaks perfect English, some of her family in Poland do not. We have visited there twice since I used the program (loaded on my I-Pod). All her relatives were VERY impressed with my accent and vocabulary. They could actually understand me! I was SO disappointed when I tried to order Phase 2 and found that it isn't available. This system works perfectly for me.

      I practice my lessons while I drive each day. I love to hear my Polish friends tell me they can actually understand me speak their language. It is fun to be able to follow my friend's Polish conversations. I wish Pimsleur had a Polish Phase 2.

          Comments about Polish Phase 1, Units 1-30:

          The product seems well thought out and it works. I wouldn't say it's fun but I always feel very good about having completed a unit and about what I'm learning. I have a feeling of accomplishment.

          If often takes me longer than the given pause to come up with a requested response. Maybe it's my age (71). So I hover over the Pause button. I don't really mind.

          My only real disappointment is that there is not a Phase 2, so I don't know what I'll do to continue learning when I'm done with Phase 1.

          Otherwise I think it's a great product and recommend it.
