Some More resources to learn Polish
If you don’t have time to attend a Polish class and want to learn the Polish language by yourself, you should try apps like:
- Duolingo. Free app with a lot of free content. It is easy and fun to use but it lacks grammar lessons and structure.
- Mondly. This one is a tip from our reader, Jessica, who said it’s got a better teaching technique than Duolingo. We’ll test it out for sure!
- Babbel. The app is free but then you need to pay for the language package. It is very well rated and effective. Less fun than Duolingo but rich in grammar content and vocabulary. I used it myself and can definitely recommend!

- Rosetta Stone. This is an app as well as a computer software. I have never used it but it’s apparently very good and popular.

Another very fun way to learn Polish is ‘Fiszki’.
Fiszki is a set of cards with words and sentences in Polish on one side, and in English on the other. The introductory pack has over 500 words and costs around 25zl. Beside vocabulary it also introduces a little bit of grammar as well. I really recommend this, also as a present for a friend.
