Lesson Transcript

Introduction
Eric: Welcome to 3-Minute Polish Season 1, Lesson 20 - Talking about Your Likes. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to ask and affirmatively answer a question about what you like in Polish.
Body
Eric: Here's the informal way to ask 'Do you like chocolate?' in Polish.
Marzena: [Normal] Lubisz czekoladę?
Eric: First is a word meaning 'you like'
Marzena: [Normal] lubisz [Slow] lubisz
Eric: Last is the word meaning 'chocolate'
Marzena: [Normal] czekoladę [Slow] czekoladę
Eric: Note the rising intonation. Listen again to the informal question meaning 'Do you like chocolate?'
Marzena: [Slow] Lubisz czekoladę? [Normal] Lubisz czekoladę?
Eric: Now, imagine you're speaking to a stranger. Here's the formal way to ask a woman, 'Do you like sweets?’
Marzena: [Normal] Lubi pani słodycze?
Eric: First is a word meaning 'she likes'
Marzena: [Normal] lubi [Slow] lubi
Eric: Next is the word meaning 'ma'am, you'
Marzena: [Normal] pani [Slow] pani
Eric: Last is the word meaning 'sweets'
Marzena: [Normal] słodycze [Slow] słodycze
Eric: Note again the rising intonation. Listen again to the formal question meaning 'Do you like sweets?’ when asked to a woman.
Marzena: [Slow] Lubi pani słodycze? [Normal] Lubi pani słodycze?
Eric: Here's a response meaning 'Yes, I like it.'
Marzena: [Normal] Tak, lubię.
Eric: First is a word meaning 'yes'
Marzena: [Normal] tak [Slow] tak
Eric: Last is the word meaning 'I like'
Marzena: [Normal] lubię [Slow] lubię
Eric: Listen again to the response meaning 'Yes, I like it.'
Marzena: [Slow] Tak, lubię. [Normal] Tak, lubię.
Eric: Here's a response meaning, 'Yes, I love it!'
Marzena: [Normal] Tak, uwielbiam!
Eric: First is a word meaning 'yes'
Marzena: [Normal] tak [Slow] tak
Eric: Last is the word meaning 'I love'
Marzena: [Normal] uwielbiam [Slow] uwielbiam
Eric: Listen again to the response, 'Yes, I love it!'
Marzena: [Slow] Tak, uwielbiam! [Normal] Tak, uwielbiam!
Cultural Insight
Eric: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Marzena: If you don't know how to start a conversation in Poland, just try asking about someone's likes. To express your likes, you would usually use lubię, meaning "I like." We rarely say Kocham, which is "I love," but if you need something stronger, you can say uwielbiam, which means "I love/really like/adore."

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!
