2.0 out of 5 stars An incredibly unhelpful book, 27 Dec 2009
By 
This review is from: Teach Yourself Polish with CD (Audio) (Teach Yourself (McGraw-Hill)) (Paperback)
Polish is a really complex language, and I got this book to be able to converse properly with my relatives. Although many other books are about memorising words which are wholly unimportant, this is actually no better for it's conversational take. The idea would work well if there was sufficient audio material on the cd to help.

Pronunciation of Polish words is a major obstacle to tackle, and the half-page guide at the front is really no help. When it comes to a rare section that is on the cd, you play the woefully short track only to discover a word you thought would be pronounced one way is pronounced entirely differently. Esentially since I need to speak Polish and not write it just yet, this guide only confused and confounded me more and just got shelved.
