We believe that the most effective way to learn a foreign language is the direct method. As a result, we have developed a series of START textbooks for learning at levels A0, A1, and A2. They fill a niche on the market of textbooks for learning Polish as a foreign language. We are not only the authors of a series of Polish language course books but also experienced teachers and founders of the Polish language school for foreigners – KLUB DIALOGU. Our many years of experience in working with foreigners guarantee the high quality of the content and methodology of the START series.
Thanks to the START method, students are naturally introduced to the language system and encouraged to speak Polish from the very beginning. The textbook does not focus on grammar, but rather serves as an aid in developing communication skills. Thanks to this, students do not feel overwhelmed with information, they discover and learn language rules step by step and can immediately use them in real situations. We recommend the handbook for work during language courses or for individual work with the help of a teacher. It can also be used for self-study by motivated learners but does not include any English explanations.
START 3 together with the START 1 Survival Polish and START 2 Beginner Polish textbooks allows you to work on a language course for 300 lessons.
Additional elements of the series are Workbooks and Lector’s Notebooks, i.e. about 200 pages of additional aids for the teacher and the student, which enable work based on the same grammar and lexical material.
