English-Polish Phrasebook with Useful Wordlist.
Braginski, Aleksandra, Ed.
A phrasebook for Polish-speaking refugees in the United States groups phrases in 19 units covering a wide range of situations and introducing the daily activities of American life. Two wordlists, one Polish-English and one English-Polish, provide the terms most frequently needed. The book is intended as a reference book for immediate use and not as a textbook for learning English. The units cover such topics as: coping with the language barrier, useful forms of etiquette, giving information about yourself, recognizing signs, converting weights and measures, using numbers, dealing with money, dealing with time, locating things, describing things and people, doing things, going places, and conveying information. Also included are units on health, food, clothing, housing, jobs, and schools. A map of the United States and its important cities and a brief section of language notes are also provided. (MSE)
