I am approaching this book as a complete beginner to the Polish language, and I must admit that I still find the text quite a challenge. While it is well-written and relatively easy to comprehend, I found that a few other texts were perhaps just a bit easier to follow. I do like the fact that one may peruse the book from any starting point and proceed at one's own pace, and overall, I do recommend this book for anyone serious about learning some Polish.

It is fairly well written, but I have had no exposure to the Polish alphabet and language and it is different from every other language I have been exposed to (English, Spanish and French). This is the hardest language I have ever attempted and I will be lucky to learn, "Hello, Goodbye, Thanks and Your Welcome" over the next month before I head for Poland.

It's a good book for someone who is looking only to learn pharses. It's a fairly, easy to read book. She explains things better then berlitz would.
