Emma! My polish boyfriend just sent me this video, as he thought I might relate. And I totally do! I’m from Colorado, teaching, playing music and coming up on 8 years in Poland! And everything you’re experiencing with the language and culture is basically part of my own story. 😂✌️ If you ever want to meet for a coffee and talk about how long it took you to be comfortable with light switches on the outside of the bathrooms, or how amazing the window designs are but seemly always missing screens and all the other seemly insignificant differences that are monumentally confusing for us Americans, get in touch. 🖤 all the very best to you on your journey in this hidden and complicated gem of a place to be an expat in.

Just a quick tip: When you say words, rz=ż ch=h Also, u and ó are pronounced the same way. And while ci and ć may sound similar in a sentence, the ć is like a short, sharp version while with the ci you have to make sure to say the I at the end, so it's basically pronounced as "ći" And the same goes to ś and si

@Steepshine • 핈 it is related to declinations that hardly exist in English but in Polish like in Latin they do exist. And some forms are like in Latin. Eg. To go - pójść In past tense will be in singular I went - poszedłem And in plural We went - poszliśmy And that is visible temporal as it derives from word Go - iść (now) Will go- będzie szedł ( masculine future) Where in English you add at the beginning who will go , I, you,he, she, it and so on And in Polish it is in word by changing of flexes.

Yeah, we have a lot more sounds than just letters. Besides those additional diacritic signs: ą, ę etc. we have sounds made by combination of two letters: sz, cz, rz, dz, dż, dź, ch. And just a few small tips: "sz" can be similar to ś and is commonly confused by foreigners, rz = ż, ch = h, ó = u. The rest I guess you just have to learn as new sounds.

And I really believe you shoudldn't have panicked and actually admit that you're an American student because this person would never see this coming ;) You're doing great so far, keep at it and you have really big chance to master Polish on communicative level ^^ Have a wonderful day and enjoy your stay.

Some tips of pronounciation: "Ch" is the same sound as "h" "Rz" is the same sound as "ż" "Ó" is the same sound as "u" Also when the "Rz" is after some consonants (p b t d k g ch j w) it changes into "sz" sound - as far as I know because it became like that cause it's easier to pronounce it softly. You may ask why we have 2 different forms for the same sounds: basically in the past they sounded differently, but with time the difference dissapeared. They still have some meaning in a way, because the sounds of them change in different ways while declinating. Rz can go to r, ó to o and so on. Probably the only way to remember how a word is pronounced is to learn it by heart, but don't worry too much primary school students od tej have problems with writing properly when it comes to them and hate those haha

@LikePhoenixFromAshes Polish words are absolutely cool for me, they often resemble archaic Slovak words. It is like reading some poetry where the poet is helping himself by inventing new words from the ones that already exist. Actually, we used to have a poet like this in Slovakia, he invented himself an artistic name Hviezdoslav and if you read him as a Slovak speaker, you just go by intuition because many of those words do not exist in the language today - yet you know perfectly what he meant. I can imagine that in the archaic times glód and chłód were the same word, some caveman showed to his tummy and said he felt it empty like if it was cold inside. In my class I am with several non-slavic speakers and it is true I can intuitively guess the meaning of most of the words while the other students are completely lost. Can't wait to be able to read Polish books and watch movies in Polish. The grammar seems to me more difficult than the Slovak one and I still do not hear all the differences in pronunciation. But the language is beautiful and very positive. By the way, do you happen to know from when does the Polish language use diacritics like this? Is there a way to find out?

Your pronounciation is extremely good for a beginner who speaks originally English. I heard many Americans trying to speak Polish and your pronounciation is significantly above the average, very natural for Polish ears. Good that you carefully pronounce both consants and vowels and try to pronounce each single sound. Americans tend to focus on vowels and skip some sounds - I guess that works well in English, but not so much in Polish/Slavic languages. Good luck with your study!

But that's not going to happen anyway and people will continue to struggle with the V when learning English.

Hi, Emma! You're doing great! Study hard and you won't notice as the knowledge comes to you. It's definitely so! As for me, learning the Polish language is much easier than English. I don't know why it is so. Honestly, it's been going on for more than three and a half years as I've been trying to start speaking English fluently at long last, but it's just impossible. On the other hand, Polish has been caught by me in less than two years, not perfectly, but on a pretty high level to have conversations without thinking too much. Maybe that's because of the closeness of my native tongue to the Polish one, I guess... (ale wymowa tych wszystkich trudnych słów po polsku to dla mnie po prostu koszmar)

Please keep going! It seems like you're doing well, your pronunciation sounds naturally okay. I enjoy learning languages too (mostly Nordic and Asian) so it's always such a great thing to see someone actually taking an effort to try learning Polish. It's messed up, but it's easier than English in some aspects. Let's say, pronunciation. Polish is phonetic so basically everything is pronounced the way it's written. Once you go through the basics of pronunciation, you'll be fine. Grammar is a bit tough, but don't discourage yourself. Poles will be quite forgiving when it comes to foreigners' ablity to speak our language. They will mostly appreciate your effort. Good luck and keep going! It'd be nice to see some progress reports as you go further.

Emma Witter, I honestly love your film. As a Polish man, I can tell you put so much effort to make it. Good job. Don't give up, because it looks like you're on a good way to learn Polish well :-) It's not that difficult. The more you learn of this language the easier you will find it. Your lovely American accent makes Polish sound better than some Polish people. And actually, your accent is not so strong. Good luck!

What's so weird about "rz" being softened to "sz" in "przepraszam"? It's nothing compared to what happens to "c" in "Pacific Ocean". 😂😅

This is a great example Maciej, Polish is so much more 'logical' when it comes to pronunciation, we have a few rules like 'rz' being softened to 'sz' etc., but then we never have things like "Pacific Ocean" where 'c' does three different sounds without any justification, or weird rhyming pairs like 'choir' and 'squire'. We also don't have such vowel chaos as in English, where vowels turn into schwas whenever they feel like it and there's three different kinds of schwas etc. Contrary to the popular opinion, English is really phonetically crazy and much more complicated and unpredictable than Polish.

This in linguistics is called "assimilation", and it involves a sound becoming more similar to a neighbouring sound to easen the word's pronunciation. Assimilation can also happen in English, note how in "can be" the /n/ sounds closer to an [m] because of the /b/ after it

@Vulpix37 Sure, even if it's more or less easier depending on what your mother language is there's only one digraph softened here and rules of polish determine the pronunciation of everything unlike the english ones. Aren't you familiar with what Shakespeare said that he can write his name in various ways and it will be still fine?

It's the first video of your's that I've just watched, and If your goal is to communicate with Poles, taking the circumstances (being in Warsaw) I'd recommend focusing on understanding the language not necessarily speaking it, let me explain why. It is much easier to learn to understand a foreign language than to use it, and it works for Poles and for you, so to have an effective way of communicating you would only need to learn to understand what's being said, and speak English in reply (try using simple words), as many Poles understand a lot of English as it is part of the basic learning program at school. We totally understand how difficult our language is, and simply adding an only a couple of polish salutations like, Prosze, dziekuje, dzien dobry, dowidzenia, will go a long way, and bring smiles most of the time :) Great effort non the less, bravo!

There is a lote trouble in polish language, like example you gave "chodź" what means "come" but we have also word "choć" which means "but/also" and almost pronaunce of these words are almost similar for foreign people but for locals they can hear actually a diference when in "chodź" the last letter is more harder in hearing and "ć" in "choć" is much softer. Keep lerning and don't forget that we do not have any words with letters like x, q and words beginning with y :D

As far as orthography is concerned, i.e. a third of the task to learn a language, Polish is very easy. Almost everything is pronounced as it is written, letter for letter. In fact, no letter is ignored, as is the case with many words in English. It is exactly different in English. There are various words where certain letters are not pronounced at all. For example to laugh and to love." The words are pronounced almost identically and written completely differently. In addition, some letters of the words are not spelled out at all.What is the "e" at the end of love for? Completely superfluous, but you have to learn it even though it's pointless. And laugh is even worse! The letter combination augh is actually pronounced like in Love ov but is absurdly written augh. For Poles where every letter of a word must be spoken out is that a horror. And the horror is in every 3 english word. When we're already at the word love are. With V! In the Polish alphabet there is no letter V. V is identical to F and V is therefore superfluous. Therefore, F is sufficient! Nice and simple in contrast to English. Why isn't lofe written like that? There is no logical reason. Or why isn't Vriday written like that? No reason here either. There is also no reason to write "eight" with "h". In English, many letters are written but not pronounced like !h! in eight! And in addition, letters are also pronounced differently, such as "a" in April and Austria or "u" in bus and united. same letter completely different pronouncement.Actually completely absurd! So English is hardly easier to learn than Polish because of this absurd spelling in which you actually have to learn to pronounce every word. In Poland One will learn to pronounce the individual letters and one will be able to read every word. Very easily!

I really admire foreigners who decide to learn Polish: difficult pronunciation, complicated grammar, conjugation, declination of nouns and adjectives (7 cases), spelling, lots of exceptions. If I haven't grown up here I wouldn't have patience and strenght to master that beast. Keep up good work and don't matter your mistakes.
