Lesson Transcript

Introduction
Eric: Welcome to 3-Minute Polish Season 1, Lesson 25 - On the Phone. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to understand basic Polish phone vocabulary.
Body
Eric: Here's the way to say 'Hello.’ when you’re answering the phone in Polish.
Marzena: [Normal] Tak słucham.
Eric: This expression has only one word meaning 'hello', when answering the phone.
Marzena: [Normal] Tak słucham. [Slow] Tak słucham.

Marzena: [Slow] Tak słucham. [Normal] Tak słucham.
Eric: Ok, now let's take a look at the way to say 'This is Monica.'
Marzena: [Normal] Mówi Monika.
Eric: First is a word meaning 'speaking'
Marzena: [Normal] mówi [Slow] mówi
Eric: Last is the word meaning 'Monica'
Marzena: [Normal] Monika [Slow] Monika
Eric: Listen again to the phrase meaning 'This is Monica.'
Marzena: [Slow] Mówi Monika. [Normal] Mówi Monika.
Eric: Next up is the way to say 'May I talk to Thomas?'
Marzena: [Normal] Czy mogę rozmawiać z Tomkiem?
Eric: First is a word meaning 'Can I'
Marzena: [Normal] czy mogę [Slow] czy mogę
Eric: Next is the word meaning 'to talk'
Marzena: [Normal] rozmawiać [Slow] rozmawiać
Eric: Next is the word meaning 'with'
Marzena: [Normal] z [Slow] z
Eric: Last is the word meaning 'Thomas'
Marzena: [Normal] Tomkiem [Slow] Tomkiem
Eric: Listen again to the phrase meaning 'May I talk to Thomas?'
Marzena: [Slow] Czy mogę rozmawiać z Tomkiem? [Normal] Czy mogę rozmawiać z Tomkiem?
Eric: Finally, here is a way to say 'I'll call again later.'
Marzena: [Normal] Zadzwonię jeszcze raz później.
Eric: First is a word meaning 'I call'
Marzena: [Normal] zadzwonię [Slow] zadzwonię
Eric: Next is the word meaning 'one more time'
Marzena: [Normal] jeszcze raz [Slow] jeszcze raz
Eric: Last is the word meaning 'later'
Marzena: [Normal] później [Slow] później
Eric: Listen again to the phrase meaning 'I'll call again later.'
Marzena: [Slow] Zadzwonię jeszcze raz później. [Normal] Zadzwonię jeszcze raz później.
Cultural Insight
Eric: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Marzena: On the phone, after the person answering says Tak słucham we usually answer with Dzień dobry meaning "Good morning/good afternoon", but if it's really late it is ok to say Dobry wieczór meaning "Good evening". When you call a friend, you can say Cześć, which means "Hello" and can be also used as "bye" at the end of the conversation.

Outro

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

Lubie moj Polska diewczyna, Magdalena! 😄

Dzien dobry! I'm Greek and I live in Athens so my computer doesn't allow me to use Polish characters, those strange ''e'' and ''a'' with the commas underneath, the ''n'' with the accent on top and so on! I'm working on it, though! Great site, guys! I'm utterly satisfied.
