POST
Eric: Listen again to Kasia's post.
Marzena: Nie znoszę deszczu...
Eric: "I hate rain..."
Marzena: (SLOW) Nie znoszę deszczu... (Regular) Nie znoszę deszczu...
Eric: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "I can't stand."
Marzena: nie znoszę
Eric: This is a relatively strong way to say that one hates something. You can use a softer expression, but this one sounds better when complaining about the rain. Listen again- "I can't stand" is...
Marzena: (SLOW) nie znoszę (REGULAR) nie znoszę
Eric: Then comes the phrase - "rain."
Marzena: deszczu
Eric: "Rain" is a genitive case. You have to use this case because the whole sentence is a negation. Listen again- "rain" is...
Marzena: (SLOW) deszczu (REGULAR) deszczu
Eric: All together, "I hate rain..."
Marzena: Nie znoszę deszczu...
