The Poles have created a free online resource of the Polish language for rapprochement with Ukrainians
Free online Polish course for Ukrainians
Poles have created a free online Polish language course for Ukrainians. According to the author of the course, Polish correspondent of the “Mirror of the Week” Jakub Loginov, thus they want to promote further rapprochement of Poles and Ukrainians. “As Euromaidan has shown, our peoples must stick together,” Porteuropa.eu quoted him as saying. In order to start learning Polish, you need to sign up. E-mails and free study materials will be sent to you. “If you don’t like or change your mind to learn Polish, you will simply refuse,” the course’s creators said. Yakub Loginov used the author’s method in the course, thanks to which he himself once learned the Ukrainian language in just 4 months. In his opinion, the recipe is simple: since 60% of Polish words are similar to Ukrainian, it is enough to study only those that are different. In addition, the course will provide examples of typical Polish language constructions. The course consists of many lessons that will be automatically sent to the signatory’s address every 3-4 days. You need to enroll in the course through the form on the website. (Be sure to click on “link aktywacji” otherwise the recording will not be successful).
