How to learn Polish pronunciation?

5 tips below

 

 

LISTEN CAREFULLY 

 

 Let your ears and brain  hear and learn Polish rustling sounds.

Give your brain a chance to build new neuronal connections and sounds’ maps:

– listen to the radio, podcasts, songs and – of course – people.

 

IMITATE LIKE A CHILD

 

Overdo and exaggerate, make silly faces.

Attention! There is a side effect : no wrinkles guaranteed.

 

REPEAT HUNDREDS OF TIMES

 

New or strange sounds connections have to be repeated.

(P – SZ), (F – SZ),  (T – SZ),  (K – SZ) and (F – P – SZ), (F – T – SZ), (F – K – SZ)  groups are very frequent.

Trust me, mastering these sounds really makes sense!

 

LEARN TO PRONOUNCE difficult, long words

 

  • starting from the end of the word
  • dividing it into syllables or even sounds
  • adding each time one previous syllable or sound
  • repeating again and again

 

ex.: PRZEPRASZAM
– am
 – sz – am,
– a – sz – am,
– r – a – sz – am,
– p – r – a – sz – am,
– e – p – r – a – sz – am,
– sz – e – p – r – a – sz – am,
p – sz – e – p – r – a – sz – a – m

 

BEAT TIME AND FEEL THE RHYTHM

 

While speaking Polish clap your hands and stamp your feet.

Polish beat is easy.
