1 Polski krok po kroku will immerse you in the Polish environment and you will have no choice but to use Polish all the time, in all types of everyday situations. Together with a group of friends from different countries you will live in Krakow the most popular city in Poland, a city of magnificent monuments, rich cultural life and unforgettable atmosphere as a seat of learning. You will quickly discover that this is the place for studying Polish and an ideal location for exceptional holidays. Together you will not only learn the language, but also go shopping, eat in restaurants, cook, visit interesting places and discover Polish culture. Living with a Polish family, you will have the chance to experience Polish hospitality and become familiar with Polish customs. Experienced and enthusiastic teachers, who treat their work as a genuine passion, will show you the ins and outs of the Polish language. Polski krok po kroku is written only in Polish, as this method of presenting a new language brings the best results. It leads students into the language system in a natural way and from the very start encourages to speak exclusively in Polish. As this handbook constitutes a part of a larger interactive course in Polish, available at e-polish.eu, it can equally be used for studying on your own. The website includes comments in different languages and a multimedia dictionary, which allows you to learn without the help of teachers. Next to each exercise in the handbook there is a number which helps you to find the exercise in the Internet course and check the answers, listen to the recordings or do alternative exercises that will help in consolidating the material or explaining any doubts you may have. A special memorisation system shortens the time necessary for learning new words and phrases. Thanks to the large number of illustrations and audio materials, learning comes naturally as it does with children, who acquire their mother tongue by observing the world and listening to the sounds that surround them.
2 is also: INTUITIVE GRAMMAR CHARTS All exercises, dialogues and grammar charts are prepared in such a way that the student doesn t require any comments in their own language. Many rules can be discovered by students themselves. New vocabulary items are explained through a context. What is important in the book are colours thanks to which grammar charts and sets of rules are clear and comprehensible. They can be intuitively completed by the students and the colours help to remember new endings. INSPIRATION FOR SPEAKING The book s advantage is a wide variety of words and phrases, also from everyday speech. Grammar is always introduced in a communication material. Together with traditional grammar exercises we offer gapped dialogues to set the material in the situational context. WIDE CHOICE OF AUDIO MATERIALS The coursebook includes numerous listening materials. Not only are all dialogues recorded, but also a lot of exercises, as we think that good listening skills are the basis of effective communication. ADDITIONAL MATERIALS Our book is a supplement of e-polish.eu Internet platform offering a rich variety of ready to use materials for teaching Polish as a second language. It is worth checking what kind of exercises are offered to accompany a given material from the book.

The students can do alternative exercises, check the answers, listen to the recordings, clarify doubts. There is also an extensive Teacher s Book available online.
