Polish in Phrases and Sentences #1

When it comes to learning foreign languages some seem to be more difficult than others. As a teacher, I realised that even a beginner student can quite quickly start speaking in English as the basic grammar is quite easy and doesn’t require much knowledge about sentence structure. There is only a very limited amount of conjugations in English and no declensions. You just have to learn a few words, put them together, and it works! Spanish seems to be a little bit more difficult, but still quite easy. Then comes German with both conjugations and declensions, so even a simple topic of ‘Your usual day’ can become a challenge for a learner. If you seek something even harder, there is my mother tongue, Polish! Cases, exceptions etc. can cause a serious headache. That’s why I thought of preparing a little aid for all those brave men and women who aren’t afraid of any inflectional monster and have decided to master this beautiful tongue. This series hopefully will help you build natural sentences, become familiar with different aspects of grammar and vocabulary. Each video contains 30 sentences which focus on a specific grammar or vocabulary topic. You can also download an MP3 file to your computer or mobile phone from my website and practise anywhere you like. The idea is that you not only listen to the sentences but also try to repeat them. This should be done many times because, as they say, practice makes perfect! On my blog, you can also find some exercises that accompany the video. For each episode, a pdf file with all the sentences is available too.

This is an introductory episode with some basics that are usually learnt during the first lessons. Good luck!

About the author

Ioannes Oculus

I am addicted to languages, both modern and ancient. No language is dead as long as we can read and understand it. I want to share my linguistic passion with like minded people. I am also interested in history, astronomy, genealogy, books and probably many others. My goals now are to write a novel in Latin, a textbook for Latin learners, Uzbek-Polish, Polish-Uzbek dictionary, modern Uzbek grammar and textbook for learners. My dream is to have a big house in UK or USA where I could keep all my books and have enough time and money to achieve my goals.
