Lesson focus

In Poland there are many delicious dishes! We have already covered how to order them, but not how to eat them! However, that is not always so straightforward. In today's lesson, we will learn how to ask, "How do you eat this?"
In Polish, "How do you eat this?" is Jak się to je? The first word jak means, "how."
Then we have się meaning, "itself."
This is followed by to ("it"). We finish the question with je, which stands for "eats." To recap here, we have Jak się to je? This literally means, "How is this eaten?"
Finally, we will talk about something that may come in handy for everyone who doesn't like hot dishes. Polish cuisine is not known for being spicy, but from time to time you, might find dishes that are actually very hot.
The question "Is this hot?" in Polish is Czy to jest pikantne? The words czy to jest mean "is this."
Next, we have pikantne, which in English is "hot, spicy."
All together, we have Czy to jest pikantne? "Is this hot?"


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.
