 Learning Polish on the internet

Learning Polish on the internet

 

Please read info about Libratus schools and Polish government proposals posted on the FAQ page.

 

Below there is some info about learning Polish with help of internet as recommended by Readers or  submitted to the Editor by different educational outfits.

 


 

 

Reader recommended free podcasts and paid subscriptions with Piotr.

Seems great for Polish-Americans, that is people who know the language somewhat,

understand more, speak less and would like to take it to the next level.

In small daily chunks, regular readings etc.
