Hi i was wondering if anyone can recommend a good english-polish translation book please?

My lover writes to me in polish sometimes and then helps me translate it when i get stuck but this time he won't help and says i have to do it by myself.

Spotkamy

we meet
from the verb spotkańá - unfortunately you need to know a little bit of Polish grammar before you can use the dictionary effectively :(

I doubt there is such a thing. Polish grammar is unlike English. The words you are looking for in a dictionary are likely to be found there, but mostly in their infinitive forms. Just a few months of intense study will make you likely to be able to use Polish dictionaries so you can start learning Polish ;)
