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.

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'm learning a lot of Polish

          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.
