POST
Eric: Listen again to Maciek's post.
Marzena: Dają czadu!
Eric: "They rock!"
Marzena: (SLOW) Dają czadu! (Regular) Dają czadu!
Eric: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "they give."
Marzena: dają
Eric: This is a plural form of "to give" but in this phrase it means more like "show". The whole phrase is a set expression, so you cannot change the verb or the noun. Listen again- "they give" is...
Marzena: (SLOW) dają (REGULAR) dają
Eric: Then comes the phrase - "rock,” or “power."
Marzena: czadu
Eric: This word, meaning "power" or just "rock," is used as a set with the previous verb meaning "They rock". It is usually used by young people. Listen again- "rock, power" is...
Marzena: (SLOW) czadu (REGULAR) czadu
Eric: All together, "They rock!"
Marzena: Dają czadu!

Eric: Kasia's high school friend, Ania, uses an expression meaning - "I envy you!"
Marzena: (SLOW) Zazdroszczę! (REGULAR) Zazdroszczę!
[Pause]
Marzena: Zazdroszczę!
Eric: Use this expression to be funny.
Eric: His college friend, Tomek, uses an expression meaning - "Not too bad.” or “This band is not too bad."
