I need something that will help me retain the huge amount of information now that sounds and speech are less of a problem. I was thinking of maybe starting to do half an hour of clozemaster/anki sentences everyday. I like sentence level analysis of grammar and I usually find it simple enough to deduce the rules at a sentence level.
I tried that. It did not work for me. Clozemaster/anki are too limited dealing with cases, verbs and insane polish logic. There is no time to think in this language. Too complex.

The distinction is not so hard after a while the real problems with the verbs are as just noted.... the prefixes... they follow a logic of their own sometimes.... so each verb might have 20+ different meaning... as well as the multiplicative effects of perfective/imperfective. what I did was to split the language into passive and active. I limited the active to day to day talk and the other I dumped into the reading bucket. I do not worry about them anymore.
Maybe the list on 300 Polish Verb book is good enough. The rest will happen if and only ever. I will hang around B1 by reading books and watching youtubes until I have the need for more. If so, I trust in Schenker -I hope.

I will check Nagel out.
