Lesson focus

In Warsaw, riding the rails is one of the best choices you can make to get around and reach all the most important parts of the city. Today, we are going to cover how to get on the subway.
For several years now, the metro in Warsaw has been integrated into the entire public transport system. Zarząd Transportu Miejskiego (City Transportation Board) operates the public transport system, and they created a network of all possible means of transportation in Warsaw (such as trams, buses, and the metro) where the same tickets are used.
You can buy metro tickets at Kiosks, post offices, and from the machines located at the stations. Always look for a sign with Sprzedaż biletów on it, or in English, "Ticket sale."
Now let's see how to get our subway ticket. As you remember from the previous lessons covering how to buy a bus ticket, we can accomplish this by asking "A subway ticket, please." (Proszę bilet na metro.)
As you can see, the sentence doesn't change from the one we covered in lesson 22, apart from na metro ("for the subway").
Therefore, you have proszę ("please"), next we have bilet ("ticket"), and then na metro, which means "for the subway."


Okay, to close out this lesson, we'd like you to practice what you've just learned. I'll provide you with the English equivalent of the phrase and you're responsible for shouting it aloud.
You have a few seconds before I give you the answer, so powodzenia, which means “good luck” in Polish.
“A subway ticket, please.” - Proszę bilet na metro.
Proszę bilet na metro.
Proszę bilet na metro.
All right, that's going to do it for today. Remember to stop by PolishPod101.com and pick up the accompanying PDF. If you stop by, be sure to leave us a comment.
