Already completed Michel Thomas Total Polish? Take your Polish to the next level with this acclaimed follow-on to the Michel Thomas Method Total Course. No books. No writing. No memorizing. Just guaranteed success. Perfect Polish with the Michel Thomas Method includes up to 6 hours of audio on CD.

Stress-free audio learning with Michel Thomas, celebrated psychologist and linguist, teaches you through your own language, so there's no stress, and no anxiety. Thomas perfected his method over fifty years; he builds it up, step by step, and you don't move on until you've absorbed and understood the previous point. And, as Michel Thomas said, "What you understand, you know; and what you know, you don't forget." With parallels to the way you learned your own language, each language is learned in "real-time' conditions" There is no need to stop for homework, additional exercises or vocabulary memorization.

The "virtual" classroom situation on the recording lets you learn with others. You enjoy their success, and you learn from their mistakes. The students on the recordings are not reading from scripts and they have received no additional instruction or preparation - just the guidance you hear on the recording. You, as the learner, become the third student and participate actively in the class. There's no such thing as a poor student, only a poor teacher. This helps to ensure that you can relax and feel confident, allowing you to learn effectively.

With Michel Thomas, students aren't tied to books or a computer. Instead, Michel Thomas Method audio courses let you learn whenever you want: at home, in your car, or on the move with your MP3 player. You pick up the language naturally and unforgettably.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent follow-up to Total Polish August 4, 2013
Format:CD-ROM
Having gone through the Michel Thomas Total Polish course, I was hoping that this Michel Thomas Perfect Polish course would be a natural continuation. I feel this hope was more than met. Here in this course, the Polish instruction continues, and you start to learn how nouns shift through different cases. You are also introduced to the grammatical issue of verb aspect (called imperfective and perfective verbs) and some discussion about "verbs of habitual actions / verbs of motion". It is all done, as in the Total Polish course, in a natural and non-overwhelming way. By the time you get to the end of this course, you will be ready for "textbook Polish courses" that dive into grammar and vocabulary lists. Consequently, this course and its predecessor Total Polish are a must for people beginning to learn the Polish language.

After having finished this course, my recommendation is to move on to Polski Bez Problemu +, by Supermemo (make sure to get the + version so the course is an interactive computer driven course; it makes a HUGE difference): Do a web search on Supermemo World EU, because it is made by a company based in Poland and is therefore often out of stock on Amazon. See Polski Bez problemu!+ Elementary Level A1-A2 (Book & CD-ROM) for my review of Level 1. This is far better than Rosetta Stone, in my opinion. See my Pimsleur Polish 1 review for my details on this. (Polish, Comprehensive: Learn to Speak and Understand Polish with Pimsleur Language Programs)
