Piotr, the creator of Real Polish, emphasizes that finding enjoyable content is more important than learning grammar. His content includes hundreds of free podcasts, paid courses, and a VIP website membership.
As a VIP member, you will have access to video clips of Polish films, webinar recordings, pronunciation feedback (directly from Piotr), and transcripts for all of the podcasts. Meanwhile, a separate purchase of the Daily Polish Stories podcast will give beginners access to 100 stories told in two different ways — the second time you hear the story, it uses a different verb tense or point of view than the first (anyone who has used Unlimited Spanish will recognize this approach). After, Piotr will ask you a series of questions for you to respond to aloud. By engaging in Real Polish’s material, you can gradually acquire grammatical structures — and when you’re curious or just not getting it, you can look up a grammar explanation online.
The Daily Polish Listening course covers a variety of topics and seems to be most suitable for intermediate learners. One day you may be listening to a story about Sherlock Holmes; the next day you may be listening to an anecdote about Piotr’s laptop. If you’re unsure if Real Polish is right for you, you can ask Piotr to email you a free sample of the courses.
