Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Betsey: In each lesson of this 25 part series, you'll master a common question for Polish learners, and then learn how to answer it like a native. You'll learn how these key phrases work by breaking them down into each component. Then through repetition and new vocabulary, you'll expand your understanding of the question, its answers, and any variations.

Lesson focus

Betsey: In this lesson, you'll learn how to respond to the common question What's wrong? In Polish this is
Joanna: Co się stało?
Betsey: The first word in the question is
Joanna: co
Betsey: meaning “what” in English.
Joanna: (Slow, by syllable) co
Betsey: Listen again and repeat.
Joanna: co
{Pause}
Betsey: This pattern of first introducing a word at natural speed, providing the translation, breaking it down, and then giving it again at natural speed will be repeated throughout the series. Try to speak aloud as often as possible. The next word in the question is
Joanna: się
Betsey: meaning oneself.
Joanna: (Slow, by syllable) się
Betsey: Now repeat.
Joanna: się
{Pause}

Joanna: (slow) chory (regular) chory
Betsey: Listen to the phrase again, this time with sick
Joanna: Jestem chory.
