I am new to this :) what is the best way for me to start learning Polish? I just ordered the Polish books from the book store. Do I need to buy lessons or something? Thank you.
Your post does not say where you are located-are you in Poland?
As a native English speaker (Australian) I urge you strongly to invest in lessons-especially with Glossa. I have completed 1 intensive course and am almost through my second one at Glossa. Its an excellent and professional school and I have found all of the teachers really know their stuff. Don't muck around mate. Polish is a real language, yes it is challenging but it has a reputation that is not deserved for difficulty. But you need to get in front of a teacher, either face to face or online. There is a reason most English speakers learn Spanish-because its a baby's language, ANYONE can pick up Spanish in weeks and say something. Its for kids. This is not so with Polish. Give yourself a real challenge!
