Summary/Abstract: The aim of the article is to present the issue of mastering correct pronunciation in the Russian language by Poles. As a result of the common belief that the languages’ similarity is the factor of simplified communication, the topic is given insufficient attention in linguistic education. Moreover, the interference of these first and second languages is often understated, despite the fact that it has a strong influence on the phonetics and, de facto, hinders the communication. The obtained empirical research (mp3 records of students’ reading) was analysed in order to observe phonetic and prosodic competences. Moreover, the results of the research include glottodidactic recommendations, such as the techniques of implementing the correct articulatory and prosodic habits in Russian learning.
