Polish group

Postby moo » Sat Jan 21, 2017 9:47 pm

If anyone would like to discuss Polish language, I'm thinking of refreshing mine. I will attempt to write something but my productive skills are definitely lower than A2 as I have had no contact with the language for over a year and never learnt how to spell. If anyone can make enough sense of my broken Polish to correct it, then that'd be great.

Umium powiedzić jak mój dzien wyglanda, co lubię rubić, lubię uczyć sie jenzyca. Lubię jęnzyca polskiego itd. :)
( HOping more will come back if other people post :) )

I can only refresh and maintain Polish at the moment and see what comes back after a break of not studying it actively.

P.s if anyone is interested, I'll post stuff here that helped me out and I really enjoyed when I was learning Polish more seriously, like this band;

What kind of study group?

ETA: Like how would it be different from the normal exchange of questions and answers on the board?

While I'm not studying Polish now, I'd love for this group to take off. I'm a Slavic language lover, so Polish is on my languages-to-study-before-I-die list.

You don't need to study. With your C level Russian, I believe it would be sufficient for you just to listen to Polish content for several hundred hours :) .

To a large extent, I agree. I have studied Polish and Russian to the Intermediate Level. A couple of years ago, sincerely not wishing to offend anyone, I made the off-handed remark on the HTLAL that, from the perspective of an English speaker, Polish is Russian without the Cyrillic alphabet. It was not long before a number of native-speakers took me task! My poorly-phrased comment had been intended to express the notion that, in my experience, developing a reasonably solid base in one of the Slavic languages had facilitated my learning of another Slavic language, just as my learning one Romance language had eased my learning of others.

0 hours
Audiobook (US pulp)
Incomprehensible. I can recognize the occasional word. I sort of feel like dropping the idea.
Audiobook, (HC Andersen)
I can understand some mini scenes and narrative kernels. Very motivating.

Prior exposure: a couple of hours of TV watching in the 1990s.

I'll keep an eye on this thread. I would be a heritage speaker if I learned this. I have a lot of random phrases I know and could share if I learned to spell. Some slang and arcane stuff. My dream is to speak Polish with the same expressiveness that I speak English with, the same quality. We'll see if I get there. When I'm not on a mobile device, I'll post some links to Polish-American polkas me and my family reference a lot. Anyone heard of "I Like My Kiełbasa Better Than Her" or something that goes, "I don't want her, you can have her / She's too fat for me"? Such things exist! Anyway, happy learning, everybody.

I wouldn't want Eido to develop a wandering eye watching this thread.
