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 “Do you like Polish food?” In Polish this is
Joanna: Czy lubisz 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: lubisz
Betsey: meaning “you like.”
Joanna: (Slow, by syllable) lubisz
Betsey: Now repeat.
Joanna: lubisz
{Pause}
Listen to the the first 2 words of the question and repeat.
Joanna: czy lubisz
{pause}
And next
Joanna: polskie
Betsey: meaning “Polish.”
Joanna: (Slow, by syllable) polskie
Betsey: Now repeat.
Joanna: polskie
{Pause}
Listen to the the first 3 words of the question and repeat.
Joanna: czy lubisz polskie
{pause}
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 lubisz 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 “Do you like Polish food?”
Joanna: Tak, szczególnie uwielbiam pierogi.
Betsey: "Yes, I especially love pierogi..” Again, slowly. Repeat the phrase.
Joanna: (Slow) Tak, szczególnie uwielbiam pierogi.
{pause}
To say "no", in a simple way, just say:
Joanna: Nie lubię.
Betsey: Which is like saying “I don't like it. ” in English. Let's hear it slowly.
Joanna: (Slowly) Nie lubię.
Betsey: And one more time at normal speed:
Joanna: Nie lubię.
Betsey: Now let's break down our original response from the beginning. The first word:
Joanna: tak
Betsey: means “yes.”
Joanna: (Slow, by syllable) tak
Betsey: Now repeat
Joanna: tak
{Pause}
Betsey: And next
Joanna: szczególnie
meaning “especially.”
Joanna: (Slow, by syllable) szczególnie
Betsey:Now repeat.
Joanna: szczególnie
{Pause}
Betsey: And next
Joanna: uwielbiam
meaning “love.”
Joanna: (Slow, by syllable) uwielbiam
Betsey:Now repeat.
Joanna: uwielbiam
{Pause}
Betsey: And after that
Joanna: pierogi
meaning “dumplings.”
Joanna: (Slow, by syllable) pierogi
Betsey:Now repeat.
Joanna: pierogi
{Pause}
Betsey: Listen to the speaker say, “Yes, I especially love pierogi.”, and then repeat.
Joanna: Tak, szczególnie uwielbiam pierogi.
{pause}
Betsey: To expand on the pattern, replace pierogi with “clear chicken soup.”
Joanna: rosół
Betsey: clear chicken soup
Joanna: (slow) rosół (regular) rosół
Betsey: Listen to the phrase again, this time with clear chicken soup
Joanna: Tak, szczególnie uwielbiam rosół.
Betsey: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace pierogi. Say “Yes, I especially love clear chicken soup.”
{pause}
Joanna: Tak, szczególnie uwielbiam rosół.
Betsey: To make another phrase, replace “clear chicken soup” with “beetroot soup.”
Joanna: barszcz
Betsey: beetroot soup
Joanna: (slow) barszcz (regular) barszcz
Betsey: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “beetroot soup”
Joanna: Tak, szczególnie uwielbiam barszcz.
Betsey: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “clear chicken soup.” Say “Yes, I especially love beetroot soup.”
{pause}
Joanna: Tak, szczególnie uwielbiam barszcz.
Betsey: To expand on the pattern, replace “beetroot soup” with “gingerbread cake.”
Joanna: piernik
Betsey: gingerbread cake
Joanna: (slow) piernik (regular) piernik
Betsey: Listen to the phrase again, this time with “gingerbread cake”
Joanna: Tak, szczególnie uwielbiam piernik.
Betsey: It mostly stays the same. Simply replace “beetroot soup.” Say “Yes, I especially love gingerbread cake.”
