Michael: We heard a varied mix of ads, too.

KEY VOCAB AND PHRASES
Michael: Let's have a closer look at the usage of one of the phrases from this lesson. The phrase is...
Marzena: To się pije!
Michael: meaning "This is what people drink!"
Michael: Let’s break this expression down.
Marzena: To is a demonstrative pronoun meaning "this." Then is pije się.
Michael: This is a reflexive form of the verb "to drink."
Marzena: That verb is pić.
Michael: We can translate the use of the reflexive verb into making it a passive voice. It’s a good slogan for advertisements.
Marzena: Yes, you’re more likely to hear it in an ad than in normal conversation.
Michael: Can you give us an example using this word?
Marzena: Sure. For example, you can say... Soki Orange, to się pije!
Michael: ... which means "Orange juice, this is what people drink!"
Michael: Okay, now onto the lesson focus.

Lesson focus

Michael: In this lesson, you'll learn about advertisements. In advertisements, the products and services are usually described using adjectives.
Marzena: We heard some adjectives in another lesson, but we’re going to look at some more.
Michael: Remember that Polish adjectives have different genders. Marzena will list all three in the order of masculine, feminine, and neuter. The first word is "delicate."
Marzena: delikatny, delikatna, delikatne
Michael: Next is, "the best."
Marzena: najlepszy, najlepsza, najlepsze
Michael: Next is "soothing."
Marzena: kojący, kojąca, kojące
Michael: Next is "amazing."
Marzena: wspaniały, wspaniała, wspaniałe
Michael: Let’s hear an example sentence.
Marzena: Stworzony specjalnie dla Ciebie.
Michael: "Made especially for you." Next, we will look at how to talk about years in Polish. This is something you might need to do in advertisements, or job interviews, or many other situations.
Marzena: To say that something was made or opened in a given year, we use ordinal numbers.
Michael: How do we make ordinal numbers in Polish?
Marzena: The biggest part of the number remains the same; we only change the tens and ones.
Michael: Let’s look at how some of these ones and tens numbers change.
Marzena: Okay. We’ll start with pierwszy.
