In the next 10 lessons, you’ll build on what you’ve learned. Expand your menu, increase your scheduling abilities from general to specific, start to deal with currency and exchanging money, refine your conversations and add over a hundred new vocabulary items. You’ll understand more of what you hear, and be able to participate with speech that is smoother and more confident.
In the final 10 lessons of Phase 1, you’ll be speaking and understanding at an intermediate level. In this phase, more directions are given in the target language, which moves your learning to a whole new plane. Lessons include shopping, visiting friends, going to a restaurant, plans for the evening, car trips, and talking about family. You’ll be able to speak comfortably about things that happened in the past and make plans for the future.
Reading Lessons are included at the end of Unit 30 to provide you with an introduction to reading Polish. These lessons, which total about one hour, are designed to teach you to sound out words with correct pronunciation and accent. A Reading Booklet to be used with the audio lessons is also included in PDF format.

Impressed other Polish people
I ordered a meal for two at a Polish restaurant. The waiter was astounded and thought I had studied abroad in Poland to which I've never been. The couple next to us were surprised, also. I will be traveling to Poland next month.

Excellent for an adult trying to learn the languag
I think the method of teaching is very good and effective, and is specifically designed to audio. I did have a problem though. I bought the audiobook to teach Polish to my children. Unfortunately this resource, in common with all others I tried, is aimed at the tourist, and an American tourist in particular. Consequently vocabulary focus is such that kids are plain bored: "I am an American. Are you and American?", street addresses, directions, etc. All quite difficult words to pronounce and not useful to children. It would be wonderful if this method could be adapted for younger listeners
