    Nie Mowie Dobre po Polsku

    by stakhanov Written Dec 25, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Although most younger Poles speak English, there are many Poles, especially among the older generation who don't or don't want to. Even the majority of the police do not speak it.
    There is no doubt that Polish is a difficult language to learn. However, it is worth learning a few basic greetings and mannerisms to get by. The Poles also appreciate it when foreigners try the language.
    Dzien Dobry (jeen dobree) - Good Day
    Czy Pan (i) Mowi Po Anglielsku? - Speak English?

    Fondest memory: The fondest memoryt of Warsaw was walking through the old town on a crisp, October day. As the buildings are relatively new, the place never fails to capture one's imagination.

    Fondest memory: Remember to always carry the name of the street in which you are staying. It may be unpronouncable and you may need it for the taxi driver. I learnt this important detail when I went to a party with my brother one night. He got a little drunk and was in no fit state to tell the taxi driver his address. Big sis had to step in and get us back to some unpronouncable street with an amazing combination of szcs in.
