I entered the registration code from my textbook, and it was accepted because I did not get an error message. But I do not understand what courses or materials I should have free access to with this registration code. Everything is locked behind a paywall. I received "bonuses" when I first logged in but I did not use them right away and now they have disappeared from my homepage. If I have access to learning materials, how do I find them? Thank you.
Your code from "POLSKI krok po kroku 1" has been successfully activated. It allows you to access the e-coursebook version of your book, which contains all the exercises from the textbook in an interactive form on our platform. With the e-coursebook you can translate the instructions, access the answer key, audio recordings, and a multimedia dictionary. See this guide for more information: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ZbMcLBWjQwFQA1XjcUvV9-ArXjrDuZjkU-mZsMI69GY/
You can access your e-coursebook at any time by going to the e-coursebooks folder, here: https://e-polish.eu/student/#kursy
To open your e-coursebook, simply hover your cursor over the cover and click on the "play" icon. By selecting the headphones icon instead, or by going to the Recordings folder (https://e-polish.eu/student/#biblioteka/do-pobrania), you will be able to download audio files for your exercises.
We also offer extended versions of "POLSKI krok po kroku" 1, 2 and junior 1 e-coursebooks, which might be the "paywall" you speak of. These extended versions, called e-coursebooks+, include all the exercises and materials from their respective e-coursebooks, as well as:
+ hundreds of additional, alternative exercises not present in the books
+ grammar tables and comments
+ smart vocabulary revision tool (flashcards)
+ adding your own notes to lessons
Thanks to these additional functions, e-coursebooks+ allow you to study Polish on your own in an even more effective way. Purchasing an e-coursebook+ gives you access to it for 12 months. To see exactly how it works, you can activate a 3-day demo by following the instructions here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/18pz3DA6o0RpUpSoA_1RmPcuSLj_GQtOWrB0QqTSn9n8/edit
