If you’re interested in learning Polish on your own, there are various methods and resources available that cater to different learning styles and schedules. Here are some effective strategies to consider for self-study:
Listening – Immerse yourself in the Polish language as much as possible. This can involve listening to Polish YouTube channels and radio stations, watching Polish TV shows and movies, or even tuning into Polish podcasts. Exposure to the language will greatly enhance your listening skills and pronunciation.
Reading – Read Polish texts to improve your comprehension. Start with materials on familiar topics or interests. This could include Polish news websites, books, or blogs. As your proficiency grows, you can gradually move on to more complex texts.
Language learning apps – Mobile apps offer interactive lessons and the ability to practice on the go. By using a language learning app like Lingvist, you can improve your Polish skills with only 10 minutes of daily study.
Making learning fun – Keeping yourself motivated is key to learning a new language. Set achievable goals, monitor your progress, and reward yourself when you reach milestones. Try incorporating Polish into your hobbies and interests. For example, find a recipe in Polish and cook it, or learn the lyrics to a popular Polish song.
Practice speaking – Even if you’re learning on your own, try to practice speaking. There are many ways to do this, for example, by repeating phrases that you’ve heard, participating in online language exchange communities, or using software with speech recognition technology to check your pronunciation.
For English and non-Slavic language speakers, Polish can be considered a moderately difficult language. For other Slavic language speakers, it should be easier to learn Polish, because of their similarities. What can make Polish difficult is the case system that doesn’t exist in English, with complex grammar, and pronunciation.
Some of the positives to learning Polish are that it has fewer tenses, a lot of the words have Latin roots, which makes it easier to memorize, and it has a flexible sentence structure, unlike English.
According to the US Foreign Service Institute, it would take around 1100 hours for an English speaker to become fluent in Polish. This number should be taken with a grain of salt, however, as the time it takes to become fluent in any language is very individual and depends on many factors, such as how much time you are willing to put into learning, your native language, other languages you speak, and level of dedication.
Lingvist analyzes your existing knowledge of the Polish language to place you at the right level. This means that you can get started with the course content that’s appropriate for your level right away.
Grammar is an important part of learning any language, which is why we offer grammar tips that are relevant to every sentence you are learning.
Lingvist uses proven techniques inspired by cognitive theory, such as spaced repetition. This will help you easily remember the words you’ve learned when you need them. Long-term recall of new vocabulary is the key to speaking Polish more fluently.
Tired of typing all of those new words over and over again? Try our voice input feature and practice using your Polish pronunciation. Lingvist has voice recognition technology specifically designed for learners, so you can practice your new Polish vocabulary free from anxiety or embarrassment.
Lingvist provides plenty of opportunities to listen, not just read, reinforcing the Polish rules of pronunciation. Keep your headphones on to learn the sounds and intonational flow of Polish, then practice repeating the words.
Lingvist will keep track of what you’ve mastered, so that you can see your own progress. Watch the number of words you can actively recall grow in personalized stats as your Polish level advances.
Setting and achieving attainable goals, like 10 minutes of Polish practice per day, have also been shown to boost your overall mood! Within a few months, you’ll be amazed at the progress you’ve made.
The best way to get comfortable with Polish is to try to switch your brain into “Polish mode” by creating an immersive Polish environment. Listen to Polish radio while making dinner or Polish podcasts during your commute.
Remembering why you decided to start this journey will help you establish sustainable learning habits. If you feel a dip in motivation, return to that initial reason to refocus your priorities.
