Postby księżycowy » 2018-06-18, 9:21

Cześć!

This is the thread for the Polish study group. The basic idea here is to work together on learning Polish (whether with the same or different resources). So far me and Salajane have expressed interest in doing this, but if anyone wants to join at any point in time, please don't hesitate! :)

EDIT:
Regarding shared materials for the group:
I take copyright laws serious, and will not have myself or this forum dragged into legal troubles over materials. That being said - I am willing to distribute materials not freely and legally accessible to members of the forum in good standing and who do not have the means to purchase said materials themselves (for whatever reason). I am only doing this for the purposes of a group study of the language, and so that all members of the group have the materials being used. Please do not distribute these materials outside of the group or it may ruin the fun for everyone else. If you wish to get a copy of these scans please PM me and we can discuss it. Access to these materials will be taken down immediately upon the request of the author or publisher of the materials or the administrative team of this forum.

So, as we're using different resources, I'll post my goals for this week.

I'm using First-Year Polish by Swan, by the way.


I spent some time last week listening to the pronunciation section, and also listening to the vocabulary and dialogues from lessons 1 & 2. This week I think I'll focus on learning the dialogues from lesson 1. (Or, if my work load is a little too much, only dialogue A.)

And here I am, taking my time. :P

Though you have a leg up on me, being a native Slavic speaker.

Hold the presses!

I just found and bought Polish in 4 Weeks for 5USD! For that price, I'm willing to buy and use a new resource! :partyhat:

Now I just have to hope the audio online matches my copy. :lol:

So that obviously means we can sync our goals together once I get my copy. Which will probably be about a week or so.

We can keep going as currently planned in the meantime. :)

I guess I'll have to be a more passive participant for this one... :P

You don't have any resource to go through?

Maybe I can scan in my copy, once I get it. Depending on its condition.

Sorry! I missed the update day!

My update is rather brief anyway, I listened to the first two dialogues once or twice, but I need to go through them a few more times.

I should have said something about this before, by the newer pdf version of First Year Polish is available here:
https://lektorek.org/lektorek/

It follows the material and progression of the second edition closely enough (with some changes here and there, naturally). Though I can't seem to get the audio in the pdf to work. But I think there are some clips under the "drills" page.

Admittedly, I've postponed my study of Polish. But in a few months I hope to get back at it. :)
