Re: Polish/Polski

Can you write something in Polish? I wonder how it look, and if I am able to understand (some of) it. Like "My name is", or "I am .... years old", or "I come from Poland" or something like that.

Re: Polish/Polski

Thanks! I must admit I didn't undrestand much... Maybe I could have guessed the first, though.
I see z stands alone, as a word. What does it mean?

Re: Polish/Polski

That's very interesting, Patryk. Thanks for posting!

My coworker is Polish, maybe I should surprise her one day with some Polish words (just that I probably would pronounce them quite wrong. )

Re: Polish/Polski

No, but I taught English in Łódź for a few years in the 90s and I still read quite a bit in Polish (your English is great, by the way).

Re: Polish/Polski

I worked with some polish guys last summer... and they taught me some useful words like "paluski" and [staff edit] and "sos du paluski". Very nice guys, hard working... and I think the language sounds funnky, with all these s-z sounds which I can't pronounce! would like to learn it someday... might be useful.

Re: Polish/Polski

Hey, I'm Czech and I can understand something of what you've written in Polish. I can't understand spoken Polish almost at all, though. It's quite interesting to see how close these languages are.

Re: Polish/Polski

AWESOME! This thread may help me! I'm half Polish, but I can't speak the language. The only words I know are Grandma and Grandpa...but I can't spell them.

Actually, can someone spell that for me?

Would that be "babka" or "babcia" and "dziadek"? Polish native speakers help me out here!

You had it right the second time: babcia and dziadek.

My family is pretty much all Polish (little bit Ukrainian). My maternal grandparents were put in a work camp during WWII in Austria and my mom was born there, my uncle in Italy after the war. They emigrated to the UK and my mom moved to the U.S. in the late 60s. Of course my mom speaks Polish fluently, but my dad (whose family came from Poland turn of the 20th century) did not. So she decided that she couldn't teach me Polish.

Boy was she wrong! She kicks herself daily for this mistake! I tried to take some lessons at a Polish Cultural Center in my hometown, but they didn't have enough funds, so my Polish is pretty much non-existent, except for some naughty words I can't say!

Well, now I have resource if I have any questions and my mom's not around to answer them!

Does Rosetta Stone have a Polish program, because I was thinking that might be a good way to learn some Polish quickly?

Wow, interesting, my Grandparents Were in the Soviet Labor Camps during WWII, and they also emigrated to the UK and eventually came to the US.


My grandparents never taught my dad either. I want to learn it too, Rosetta stone does have a Polish Program, and I heard the program works wonders.
