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 “Can you eat Polish food?” In Polish this is
Joanna: Czy możesz jeść polskie jedzenie?
Betsey: The first word in the question is
Joanna: czy
Betsey: which is “a question marker.”
Joanna: (Slow, by syllable) czy
Betsey: Listen again and repeat.
Joanna: czy
{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: możesz
Betsey: meaning “you can.”
Joanna: (Slow, by syllable) możesz
Betsey: Now repeat.
Joanna: możesz
{Pause}
Listen to the the first 2 words of the question and repeat.
Joanna: czy możesz
{pause}
Betsey: And next
Joanna: jeść
Betsey: meaning “to eat.”
Joanna: (Slow, by syllable) jeść
Betsey: Now repeat.
Joanna: jeść
{Pause}
Listen to the the first 3 words of the question and repeat.
Joanna: czy możesz jeść
{pause}
Betsey: And next
Joanna: polskie
Betsey: meaning “Polish.”
Joanna: (Slow, by syllable) polskie
Betsey: Now repeat.
Joanna: polskie
{Pause}
Listen to the the first 4 words of the question and repeat.
Joanna: czy możesz jeść polskie
{pause}
Betsey: And next
Joanna: jedzenie
Betsey: meaning “food.”
Joanna: (Slow, by syllable) jedzenie
Betsey: Now repeat.
Joanna: jedzenie
{Pause}
Listen to the entire question and repeat.
Joanna: czy możesz jeść polskie jedzenie
{pause}
Betsey:You will hear this common question again and again throughout your studies. Master the following pattern and responses to the question Can you eat Polish food??
Joanna: Tak, jest przepyszne.
Betsey: "Yes, it's delicious.. Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Joanna: (Slow) Tak, jest przepyszne.
{pause}
To say "no", in a simple way, just say:
Joanna: Nie mogę.
Betsey: Which is like saying “I can't. in English.” Let's hear it slowly.
Joanna: (Slowly) Nie mogę.
Betsey: And one more time at normal speed:
Joanna: Nie mogę.
Betsey: Now let's break down our original response from the beginning. The first word:
Joanna: tak
Betsey: meaning “yes.”
Joanna: (Slow, by syllable) tak
Betsey: Now repeat
Joanna: tak
{Pause}
Betsey: And after that
Joanna: jest
Betsey: meaning “it is.”
Joanna: (Slow, by syllable) jest
Betsey:Now repeat.
Joanna: jest
{Pause}
Betsey: And next
Joanna: przepyszne
Betsey: meaning “delicious.”
Joanna: (Slow, by syllable) przepyszne
Betsey:Now repeat.
Joanna: przepyszne
{Pause}
Betsey: Listen to the speaker say, “Yes, it's delicious.”, and then repeat.
Joanna: Tak, jest przepyszne.
{pause}
Betsey: To expand on the pattern, replace “delicious” with “very tasty.”
Joanna: bardzo smaczne
Betsey: very tasty
Joanna: (slow) bardzo smaczne (regular) bardzo smaczne
Betsey: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “very tasty”
Joanna: Tak, jest bardzo smaczne.
Betsey: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “ delicious”. Say “Yes, it's very tasty.”
{pause}
Joanna: Tak, jest bardzo smaczne.
Betsey: To expand on the pattern, replace “very tasty” with “exceptional”
.
Joanna: wyjątkowe
Betsey: exceptional
Joanna: (slow) wyjątkowe (regular) wyjątkowe
Betsey: Listen to the phrase again, this time with exceptional
Joanna: Tak, jest wyjątkowe.
Betsey: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “very tasty.” Say “Yes, it's exceptional”
.
{pause}
Joanna: Tak, jest wyjątkowe.
Betsey: To expand on the pattern, replace “exceptional”
with “varied.”
Joanna: różnorodne
Betsey: varied
Joanna: (slow) różnorodne (regular) różnorodne
Betsey: Listen to the phrase again, this time with varied
Joanna: Tak, jest różnorodne.
Betsey: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “exceptional”
. Say Yes, it's varied.
{pause}
Joanna: Tak, jest różnorodne.

Witaj Anirudh,


Your sentences are almost correct, what makes me really happy!

Look:

Podoba mi się bardzo polskie jedzenie , szczególnie lubię roladę, sok owocowy i ciasteczka.

One są bardzo pyszne! (You can say also "To jest bardzo pyszne." or simply "Są pyszne").

Nie mogę jeść mięsa, jajek, i sera, bo jestem weganinem.

Muszę spróbować polskiego jedzenia następnym razem!


Pozdrawiam!
