Dzien Dobry,
My name is Anthony, I was born raised and live in the States.
I would like to converse with people who live or lived in poland so I might
learn the language faster.

Hello, I'm also looking for people to converse with. I'm learning Polish from a CD course, but its too fast. I need to actually practice the language with live people rather than trying to copy sounds coming from my cd player.

Witaj, pszczólko! ("pszczólka"- your forum name "honey bee" in Polish)

No, jak dlugo uczysz sie jezyka polskiego? - How long have you been learning Polish? (I have to ask in Polish about how long you've been "learning"/uczyc sie, because "studying"would mean to a Pole "studiowac", i.e. formal school or college instruction.)

I just recently was introduced to this forum and find it excellent!

Nie oddawno zostalem przedstawiony do tego czat-foruma i to jest swietne!

Pa!
Marek

Hi, Ghost!

.......is not very good.:)

Just remember that the difference between the usage of "good" vs. "well" in English is about the same as between "dobry" vs. "dobrze" in Polish.

Czesc, jak sie masz? - Dobrze! (nie: dobry)
Czy czytales ksiazke? - Tak, ona jest bardzo dobra ksiazka! (nie: dobrze)

Tak, na uniwersytecie właśnie rozpoczął mi się angielski , ale chciałbym jeszcze uczyć się dodatkowo w domu. No nic dzięki za chęci :)

Oh my goodness! Ya'll lost me in here with all the Polish language. It's too fast even in cyberspace.

OOOPS! Sorry there, Honeybee.

Ghost merely inquired if I could recommmend some decent English course, at which point I mailed him back that he ought to try at his local university. I then asked if he was familiar with "Rosetta Stone", the softeware-learning set. He replied that he was and thanked me anyhow for trying. :)

Later, I posted a correction to my own previous post!
Marek

Duchu!
Dzieki, nawzajem:)

My Polish isn't very good at all but I really got a lot out of writing to someone on GG - I learned a lot (but my grammar isn't any good anyway)

Exactly, I have problems with grammar --> but with english grammar :)
Sorry for mistakes ( if they are :) )

but that's what is nice about GG because you can see how the sentences are supposed to be and after a while (a long time in my case) you can catch on a little more

Hello everyone. I moved to Canada from Poland when I was 6, but have gone back several times over the past 17 years (i'm 23). I understand both languages fairly well, so I'm appreciating the polish and english postings on this forum. I've actually come across this site by chance while browsing the internet for job opportunities in Lublin as an english teacher/tutor. It's been a pleasure reading through some of these postings as they give me a feel for how polish students approach learning the english language. Similarly, I sympathise with those who are trying to learn polish. I still speak polish at home, but when actually in poland, it's a completely different story. It usually takes me about two weeks (if not more) to get a hold of it and lose my english accent, as much as i t may be lost. So good luck to all of you who are trying to learn this soemwhat complicated, but very rich language, and I suggest you immerse yourself in it by booking a trip asap. Cds will only get you so far.

If anyone here wants extra practice corresponding in english, I'm more than willing, so just respond. Maybe something half english, half polish so I can practice writing in polish.

take care.
