The topic of our paid product (the presale starts in a couple days!)

22 Jun 2012
American flag, Bibliobird logo and text 'Real Life in the USA'

Two weeks ago I told you about our idea for a paid language learning product. There was a survey about the price and format for this product. A few hundred people filled out the form - thanks so much!

Last week I told the results of the survey and asked for ideas for the topic of the product.

Today I'm just going to give you a short note with the topic we decided on and let you know that the presale is going to start on Monday, June 25th! The topic is going to be "Real Life in the USA":

  • There will be texts (and films with transcripts!) about many aspects of life in the USA, for example: work, fun and sport, and other daily activities.
  • There will be normal articles as well as stories and dialogs!
  • Some of the materials will be taken directly from real conversations with native speakers.
  • We'll also talk about immigration, stereotypes and music.

Everything will be in English, with native speakers and prepared to be read, watched and listened to on Bibliobird!

I will publish more information on Monday! Thanks in advance for your support!

Congratulations, David! That's fantastic, keep us updated on how things go, at this point I'm honestly really, really curious to see how this is going to work out. Plus, I would love to see someone else "break free from the bonds of employment" and go off to work for themselves--there's a very special sort of freedom in that, believe me. It takes massive amounts of hard work and toil and suffering and dealing with setbacks and such, but it's worth it, it really is worth it. Good luck to you, my friend.

Cheers,
Andrew

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for the kind wishes! We'll see how it goes. So far the start has been choppy as I'm still waiting on the PolakPotraf.pl people to actually activate my project. :-/ But it's only the very beginning! :-)

Best regards,
David.

Hi David,

Will the texts be in English (for Polish native speakers) or in Polish (for English native speakers?)

Thanks
Tim

Hi Tim!

This first product will have texts in English for Polish native speakers. But there will definitely be a product to help English speakers learn Polish in the future! :-)

Best regards,
David.
