The website created by Małgorzata Januszewicz (an author with experience in teaching Polish as a foreign language and a PhD in the field) offers 23 free lessons for levels A1, A2. Each lesson includes:
a) a recording (50 seconds - 1, 20), which can be downloaded in Mp3 format
b) a transcript of the recording (can be read online and downloaded in pdf format)
c) handouts (pdf)
d) exercises (pdf)
The blog is also very interesting, for those who know Polish at an advanced level. The notes, observations, grammar, vocabulary and writing explanations are accompanied by videos with Polish subtitles. On the blog, the author also proposes lesson plans and materials, which can be very useful for students (for individual study) and teachers of Polish.
