All of my students have a reason to learn. They want to communicate with relatives or their partner’s family. It is for work. They are thinking of travelling to Poland and want to understand the language. Or they have got a particular interest, like Polish literature or cuisine. Once they enrol on the course, they need to keep the reasons in mind all the time.
The first step is the most difficult. It’s to do with making a commitment. And there is the fear that you might not succeed. I can tell you now: if you try and put enough effort into learning, you are going to succeed. Throughout all years I have been teaching Polish in Newcastle, I came across all kinds of students and the ones that sticked to it are almost fluent in Polish now. Nobody did it for them. They studied, practised, revised and they got there at the end. During lessons, they played games, engaged in discussions, conversed…and realised that everybody struggles with something in Polish.
It’s a great satisfaction to speak the language that sounds so alien when you hear it for the first time. But language is just the combination of rules and vocabulary. If you spend time getting familiar with them, you’ll see that it’s like any other skill that you already have. If you put hours into mastering them, you’ll reap the harvest.
