Lesson focus

In today's lesson, we will introduce you to a phrase you will use countless times on your trip in Poland. After this lesson, you will be able to say what you like and what you don't like.
Let's move right in!
In Polish, "I like beer" is Lubię piwo.
The first word lubię means, "I like."
This is followed by piwo ("beer").
If you want to say that you like beer very much, then you can use this phrase. In Polish, "I like beer very much" is Bardzo lubię piwo. As you can see, we only added bardzo ("very much").
In the event that you don't like beer, "I don't like beer" is Nie lubię piwa.
The first word nie means, "not."
Next, we have lubię ("I like") and piwa ("beer"). Please notice that instead of pico, which we had in previous phrases, now we have piwa.
In all our examples, we have used the word piwo ("beer"). It doesn't mean, however, that the introduced phrases are only good with piwo. You can use them with any other noun. For example, if you would like to say "I like Maria," you would say Lubię Marię. We only replaced piwo with the name Marię.
If you would like to say, "I don't like techno music," it would be Nie lubię muzyki techno.


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.
"I like beer." - Lubię piwo.
Lubię piwo.
Lubię piwo.
"I like beer very much." - Bardzo lubię piwo.
Bardzo lubię piwo.
Bardzo lubię piwo.
"I don't like beer." - Nie lubię piwa.
Nie lubię piwa.
Nie lubię piwa.
