Introduction
Eric: Welcome to 3-Minute Polish Season 1, Lesson 5 - Making Apologies. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to apologise for yourself and say that you didn't do it on purpose, or that you are sorry in Polish.

Cultural Insight
Eric: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Marzena: It really depends on the situation, but you would usually just say Przepraszam or "I'm sorry" while looking very apologetic. If you do something really bad, you can always try giving a small gift.

Potrzebuję pomocy."
