Re: Język polski

It's not a popular paper with PiS voters.

Re: Język polski

Yes, Mike. I don't suggest you don't know a thing and you sould not share your oppinions. On the contrary, you may have a fresh eye and see things that escape Polish observers. I'd only be satysfied if someone sometimes said "all right, she could have her point" instead of "this must be ridiculous - she is a PiS voter".

I'd suggest "Dziennik" for balanced news - just my oppinion

Re: Język polski

My wife tells me that PiS / Radio Maria types are always bleating that interferring foreigners are to blame for everything wrong in Poland. It's the usual nationalistic response. The Nazis did the same. BNP do the same thing to get votes in England.

OK, please, start by opening a thread about those people who left in the 1970s and now want their property back. I assume you are talking about the Poles who claimed some dilute German ancestry in order to go and clean toilets in Germany?

Re: Język polski

I have no idea what they did back in Germany. Could we arrange it for tomorrow? I'm a tired pregnant woman spending too much time in front of PC, waiting for her husband to come back from work (he left at 7 a.m.)

Good night, everyone.

Re: Język polski

"Could we arrange it for tomorrow?"

Super.

Good night. What does your husband do?

Re: Język polski

I only know a handful of Polish words .

Re: Język polski

Re: Język polski

Dzjenkuja, prosha, spadej (get lost!), piwo, herbata, kawa, kocham cie, jeden, dwa, pzeprasham, kurwa

And Hans's favourite - borak.

I can't spell in Polish.

Re: Język polski

Thank you Hans for teaching me borak. Very useful.

What would 'you fucking borak' be? Kurwa borak?

Re: Język polski

'ty pierdolony buraku'

Re: Język polski

well those should pretty much get you by Neil

Re: Język polski

I liked reading Neil's Polish - this is why I like reading trashy American literature translated into Polish: I can see how to spell the words I use.

The newspapers are useless for learning Polish because they are so divorced from the language of everyday people (and I don't mean vulgarisms, just normal stuff), as is Polish literature.
