I have just found this site after many years of living with my Polish GF, which is a shame as I am learning so much. I have to say I tried to call her my misiu and she looked at me totally confused, which is one of the normal two reactions total confusion or hysterics
Gustaw Rather "Mee-shee-oo", with this "shee-oo" said almost at the same time.
I tried saying Mee-shee-oo and after a few attempts I had to resort to saying what I was trying to say in English so she could understand me
I find it easier if you split it into English sounding words in this case Me Shoe
My Polish pronunciation must be really bad, I blame it on coming from the north of England and moving around a lot and having a bit of a mixed English twang.
Thanks all the same Mr Craig
