Easy Polish! Great short videos with subtitles

29 Mar

One of my lovely students Judy found a really good source of videos about Polish ispoland-1034803-msues. I like the fact that they all have translations on the screen both in English and in Polish, so you can follow every single word.

Ma ciekawe nagrania (videos) 5- albo 6-minutowe po polsku z napisami po polsku i po angielsku.

Enjoy!

Podcasts that make you learn more!

28 Feb

One of my dedicated students Francis found a brilliant source of podcasts aimed at Polish language learners. It’s called  Real Polish  and it’s a great (and free!) Polish learning online resource. The website contains lots of great stuff for Polish learners, free online podcasts as well as Polish audio and texts.

The titles of each podcasts are in English and in Polish, so you can decide what topics interest you most. The presenter, Piotr, speaks slowly and clearly and it’s a real pleasure to listen to him. I definitely recommend learning with him!

Learn Polish while listening to music

14 Jan

It’s not a secret that listening to music in Polish can improve your vocabulary as you learn new words and phrases. It doesn’t really feel like learning while you’re having fun!

I found a you tube clip of Krzysztof Napiórkowski’s song Wszystko gdzieś w nas.  The key phrases of the video are on the screen, so it’s very easy to follow the lyrics.

 

Listen to Polish

13 Feb

Some of you struggle with speaking in Polish. I had a little look through internet resources and websites that you can access Polish and repeat after the speaker.

I have a few places that are not bad to try:

1. Listen to Polish stories: Winnie-the-Pooh (in Polish ‘Kubus Puchatek’) http://www.let.rug.nl/~houtzage/poohpolengpart1.html or Alice in Wonderland (Alicja w Krainie Czarów) http://www.let.rug.nl/~houtzage/alicepolengpart1.html . This website is great. It shows the Polish text and the English equivalent next to it. The recording is clear as well.

2. The podcast of Piotr who teaches Polish:
http://realpolish.pl/podcast/ – few podcasts are for free on-line. I wish he was a little bit more enthusastic though…

3. Listen to the radio, e.g http://www.rmfon.pl/play,5 or http://www.radiozet.pl/sluchaj/online/Radio-ZET-online.html

Hope this helps. Remember that practice makes masters!
