5.0 out of 5 stars Great for learning Polish!, 3 May 2012
By 
This review is from: Polish For Dummies (Paperback)
I think the book would serve beginners who want to study Polish on their own very well. But I am actually using it for additional study at home while being enrolled in a Polish class, and find it extremely useful for this purpose, too. The main advantages for me are:

- many of the chapters are organised by activities (such as shopping, eating out, travelling, working...) which allows to quickly jump to an area where you like to learn or revise some vocabulary

- there is a chapter summarising all the grammatical cases and the tenses, and there are verb tables, so I find it useful as a quick reference guide for essential grammar

- the audio CD presents natural dialogues spoken by native speakers and after presenting a whole dialogue it repeats all the elements at reduced speed and you are invited to repeat after the speakers, which helps to get some speaking practice; The good thing is that it is slow enough that even the "untrained" ear can follow it

- the instructions make an easy read, and there are small bits and pieces about Polish culture and small fun & games sections, which makes it more fun

- the book is quite comprehensive; after having studied Polish for 2 years in a course, I still find items of grammar and vocabulary that I haven't seen in class, so I would say if you study the book thoroughly, it will take you quite far.
