I found the most beneficial time was listening to it in my car, especially on a one-hour journey in which you can hear pretty much the whole thing. Initially, I listened to the first 3 or 4 tracks and then repeated them until I'd got the hang of it. But, actually, after that I listened to the whole thing all the way through and I think this is the best way to learn. It doesn't matter that you can't remember the earlier tracks - just keep playing the whole thing over and over and pretty soon it falls into place.
After just a few weeks of listening every few days, I've pretty much got this whole CD and I'm keen to purchase the next one. Still not perfect on the first CD but a few more listens should crack it.
I found the two 'students' at first to be helpful. Then I enjoyed getting it right when the students got it wrong! Then after a while I found them ever so slightly annoying - especially the man who seems like a pompous twit to me!
The content is ok. I can ask where the restaurant/conference/information desk is, for example. But I don't know how to count, say 'please' of 'thank you', ask how someone else is or other kinds of small-talk things.Read more ›
I have tried to learn a few languages and have always hit the problem of having to listen to the lessons over and over again before being able to remember it. This is by far the best set of audio lessons that I have listened to. I don't know if it's the "Michel Thomas Method" or just the Polish language, but having only listened to the first half of this cd, I feel pretty confident with it! Other than the first 3 minutes of introduction at the start of the cd, it's packed with content (so an hour long CD is actually quite a lot).
I haven't really had any problems understanding the woman on the cd, and their are two other "students" on the cd who also say the phrases, so anything that isn't clear first time around you can pick up from them.
Oh that's the other thing, the students on the CD actually make (what sound like genuine) mistakes, which is actually really good to hear, because it means they explain why there is a particular word order etc. The mistakes help understanding.
The recording itself is quite poor quality.
I've learned French and Spanish with Michel Thomas, but I honestly don't understand a word the woman says, she has such a strong accent.
It really is such a pity that Michel didn't record hid native language himself.
I've now found a wonderful app on the Windows marketplace instead, called Translator+
