Basic Polish presents concise explanations of grammar with related exercises, to build confidence in using the modern language.

Assuming no previous knowledge of Polish, its step-by-step approach guarantees the reader a thorough grounding in the basics of its grammar. Each of the forty units introduces a particular grammar point and provides a variety of exercises to enable the student to practice what they have learnt.

Features include:

* notes on the Polish alphabet, pronunciation and stress
* full answer key to all exercises
* Polish-English glossary.

Dana Bielec is the author of the popular Polish: An Essential Grammar, also published by Routledge.
