ABOUT THE COURSE

“Set a course for Polish A0” mini-course allows you to get the basics of the Polish language just in a month. It works because it’s an innovative method of learning that combines work at your own pace with lessons with a professional teacher. It’s probably the first course of this type offered by a Polish language school. You can learn at your own pace and do the materials whenever you want. The course is divided into 8 self-study modules. At the same time, you will be in constant contact with a teacher who can answer all of your questions (in a private Google Classroom group). In the Premium version I will check  your written assignments and your recordings with your pronunciation and I’ll give you feedback. 

 

The course includes slides with audio recordings in which I can easily explain grammar (in English), read words and sentences in Polish so that you know how to pronounce them.

There are tons of interactive exercises for each topic – you will be able to write on the screen, combine elements, create sentences from a jumble, move colorful elements. All this is presented in an easy and fun way, because I strongly believe that the human brain learns best in a relaxed way through play.

Just in a month, you will get the most important basics of the language

👉 you will be able to read Polish words and all those “strange” letters like: ś, ć, ń, ź, dz, sz, cz,

👉 You will learn the difference in formal and informal language – you will learn how to speak Polish to your friends, and how to speak to a lady in a shop or to strangers in the street

👉 You will learn to build your first sentences in Polish.

👉 You will be able to understand and use familiar everyday expressions.

👉 You will be able to introduce yourself and others, as well as ask and answer personal questions.

👉 You will be able to interact in a simple conversation with a slow-speaking conversation partner.

ABOUT ME

Cześć! Hi, I am Magda and I am a professional teacher with 8 years of experience in teaching Polish as a foreign language. I create my own materials for learning Polish, which I use both in group and individual lessons.

Privately, I am a mother of a five-year-old boy and a wife. I live in the south of Poland, close to the border with the Czech Republic. I do yoga, ride a bike, and ski in winter. I’m learning French and Spanish. I love to travel and my last long trip was to Australia, from where I gave lessons for my students for 3 months.

FAQ

What do I get with the course?

As a “Set a course for Polish A0” student you will get access to 8 online lessons with interactive slides, audio tutoring and my explanations. Later, in April 2023 you’ll get access to another 8 online lessons. The course is for total beginners so expect the very basics. You’ll also get a short pronunciation course to learn how to read all the sounds in the Polish language. If you buy the PREMIUM version you’ll have your written assignments and pronunciation exercises checked by a Polish teacher (please see more in the section below “How long does the course last”). 

Please note that the course is adjusted to the CEFR standards.

What is the CEFR?

It’s common to think of language levels as Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced, but this is often too broad. At My Polish, we use the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
It’s an internationally recognized standard that describes your learning progress in more detail. In simpler terms, the framework helps you to explain your level from Total Beginner (called A0 or Pre A1 Starters) to Proficient (C2). The CEFR levels build on each other all the way up to native-level fluency.

“Set a course for Polish A0” it’s a course for total beginners (called A0 or Pre A1 Starters) who start from scratch. In a month you’ll learn some important basics and be able to:

  • understand and use familiar everyday expressions.
  • introduce yourself and others, as well as ask and answer personal questions.
  • interact in a simple conversation with a slow-speaking conversation partner

 

What software & hardware do I need?

Preparing to learn with me is simple. You need two things: a stable internet connection, a computer or a smartphone (a laptop or a PC is recommended for your convenience), and some loudspeakers or headphones to hear me. If you buy the Premium version of the course you also need a microphone and a program/an app to record your voice. 

How long will it take to improve my language skills?

It depends. As is the case when learning any new skill, your progress depends on your efforts. If you would like to learn quickly, then I suggest that you make language learning a consistent habit and do all the exercises I prepared for you. You will also learn even more with the Premium plan because you will have stronger motivation to send your pronunciation recordings to me and to do all the written assignments within a month (please read more about the rules of checking assignments and pronunciation in the section “How long does the course last” below).  If you keep going with the course, do all the exercises and finish it in more or less  in 1 month (remember that you do the course in your free time and at your own pace), you will get all the skills needed to:

  • understand and use some familiar everyday expressions.
  • introduce yourself and others, as well as ask and answer personal questions.
  • interact in a simple conversation with a slow-speaking conversation partner

How long does the course last?

On average, it takes 1 month/4 weeks to complete all the tasks in the course.  You can do the lessons whenever you want but please remember that in order to complete the course successfully I recommend learning on a regular basis. Otherwise, you will have a backlog and lots of material to do after some time and you might get unmotivated. To help you keep going you have regular contact with me in a Google Classroom group for a month after the date of the course purchase. In this BASIC version of the course, you are going to have access to the materials (online presentations with exercises) for 12 months after the date of the course purchase.

In the PREMIUM version during this time (1 month after the date of the course purchase) I check your writing exercises once a week and send you my feedback.  I also check your pronunciation if you send a recording to me. Please remember that in the PREMIUM version, I only check your exercises in the first month after the date of the course purchase. If you don’t do the exercises in the first month you’ll only be able to check the exercises on your own with the key. In the PREMIUM version of the course, you are going to have access to the materials for 12 months after the date of the course purchase so you can also do the exercises later but remember that after a month I won’t correct your writing assignments or pronunciation. I hope this rule will be motivating for you.
