Cultural Insight
Eric: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Marzena: To say "to leave" in Polish, you would use the verb "to go (out)" because "to leave" sound very strong. You can use either wychodzisz, which means "to go out on foot," or wyjeżdżasz, which means "to go out/depart using a vehicle."
