Cultural Insight
Eric: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Marzena: When you introduce yourself, it's a good habit to shake
hands. It doesn't matter whether you're meeting a man or a woman—do the handshake. If you are not sure how to say 'Nice to meet you,' feel free to skip it. Polish people don't use it much.

Outro

Eric: And that’s all for this lesson. Don’t forget to check out the lesson notes, and we’ll see you in the next lesson!

I am traveling to Poland in March of next year on official business for nine months. The lessons would be better for me if I understood how to pronounce the words. When I see the word, I want to speak the words as if they were English. Do you have any lessons that begin with understanding dialect and how to read the language? If I tried to spell what I hear, it would not be close to what is correct.
