POST
Eric: Listen again to Maciek's post.
Marzena: Już 3 serduszka w tym roku!
Eric: "Already 3 hearts this year!"
Marzena: (SLOW) Już 3 serduszka w tym roku! (Regular) Już 3 serduszka w tym roku!
Eric: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "Already 3 hearts."
Marzena: Już 3 serduszka
Eric: The "hearts" here refer to stickers you get when you donate money at the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity of Warsaw. It is a way of saying "thank you for the donation" but also a way of marking people who have already donated. This way you won't be asked a second time, but most people will donate a few times anyway. Listen again- "Already 3 hearts" is...
Marzena: (SLOW) Już 3 serduszka (REGULAR) Już 3 serduszka
Eric: Then comes the phrase - "in this year."
Marzena: w tym roku
Eric: This phrase is made up of the preposition meaning "in" and a phrase meaning “this year”, which needs to be in the genitive case. Listen again- "in this year" is...
Marzena: (SLOW) w tym roku (REGULAR) w tym roku
Eric: All together, "Already 3 hearts this year!"
Marzena: Już 3 serduszka w tym roku!

Eric: His supervisor, Bartek, uses an expression meaning - "My wife and I also donate."
Marzena: (SLOW) My też z żoną pomagamy. (REGULAR) My też z żoną pomagamy.
