      Merci bien Franck,
      really appreciate your comment! App2Brain is mainly targeted at beginners, but you can get more in-depth Polish lessons on my other website, I’m currently translating all the grammar lessons, which will allow you to dive really deep into the language 🙂 Hope to have them online within the next two weeks.

      For App2Brain, I’m working on additional vocabulary and grammar lessons, as well as ebooks and a mobile application. They will be added one after the other this year, so follow App2Brain, e.g. on Facebook to stay updated.

      Kind regards, Tobias
