I’m not really learning Polish. I don’t need to speak it, am not moving to Poland and so on. I have discovered that I can’t learn a language without a practical use for it, and I don’t have this with Polish.
But I do find the Polish language interesting, and don’t want to stop learning the language entirely.
I have decided on a compromise.
And so I’m using Duolingo as an experiment. Each day I do one new Polish lesson, and revise one old one (or two maximum) using the ‘Practice Weak Skills’ button. I’m only learning one a day as I don’t have much time and I’m interested to see how much I can learn in this slow but steady manner.
The time commitment is minimal (ten minutes a day at the maximum) and I am intrigued to see how much Polish I will be able to read at the end of the course.
If this works for me, I can gradually work my way through the languages offered, as a way of satisfying my language wanderlust.
Besos and baci,
