Language / Learning Polish, good for beginners? [29]

I have decided to take the plunge and actually start learning this wonderful language. Can anyone suggest any books which will help me get started. My ability to grasp languages (other than English) is virtually non-existant (I learnt French for some 9 years but can barely speak a word), so something very basic for beginners would be ideal.

Thanks in advance.

You could also try the language section of this Forum :)

That might be a good idea... thanks

Do you want to talk about it? :P

What do you want to know?

incubus you are living in MY country, if you dont like it go back to your ex soviet bloc, eastern european, concrete jungle.

Britain has changed (Labour government/expansion of the EU/global economy). Unfortunately for you, this was voted for by the British electorate. If you don't like YOUR country then you should take your own and advice and leave.

History / Polish hatred towards Jews... [1290]

two sisters going at it will give the Calzaghe v Hopkins fight a good contest

You mean one will simply hold on to the other one for 12 rounds and claim they should have won the fight?

Make sure you don't look like your enjoying yourself too much. It has been known to upset the locals.

Ironic how the British are known for being prudes! Still, unacceptable behaviour imo.

Travel / Stag Parties in Kraków [119]

Imagine their reaction to 2,000,000 million of us coming there to work, of which 100,000 get drunk sell drugs and fight every weekend!

It is this very fact which makes people like Lukasz look like the ignorant bigots they are.

In fairness, this is an old thread created by a notorious bigot.

Life / Poles are not racist [873]

America is as bad as it was 60 years ago.

*Hands EbonyandBathory award for most ridiculous statement of the year*

So Obama's chances are the same now as they would have been in 1948? (I think he would have had trouble even getting a seat on a bus!!)

Jesus Wept.

History / POLAND: EASTERN or CENTRAL European country? [1080]

Today, Poland is a Central Eur. country because its economy is the same as westerners economies

The Berlin Wall is best used to define Eastern/Western Europe. The politics are no longer relevant

This central European term seems to be applied to countries with developing economies that don't wish to be associated with the old East for some reason.

And pleaase..."the only reason" ?... tss...

You're right Polson, he should have said 'the most important reason by far' rather than the only reason...

Unfortunately it wasnt a minority.

So it was the majority? The majority of 120,000 Rangers fans? So some 60,000 Rangers fans rioted?

Whatever you say love...

I know many on this site will be totally lost by this logic but I know at least a few will understand me 100%.

I understand. It's just not for me.

I disagree. A group of 50 or more jumping on one man has nothing to do with the ancient laws of combat.

With all due respect, that's not really how it works these days. Most 'firms' arrange meets, away from the average football fan and the ever more watchful eye of the police. It's essentially two sets of hooligans agreeing to a scrap. As long as innocents aren't involved then I don't really care...

To suggest that this is some sort of therepeutic exercise for them is ridiculous. This what they are about and there is nothing romantic about it.

I think it is just that (therepeutic) although I agree there is nothing romantic about it (unless your name is Carlton Leach, Cass Pennant or Bill Gardner)

Life / Why many funny stories about Polish People in Europe? [38]

leave Grzegorz alone troll

I'll say it again.

Stop stalking me. I thought blocking your abusive private messages would be enough! Obviously not.

I'll happily agree never to respond to one of your posts (no matter how retarded or rascist) if you agree to do likewise. Deal?

Life / Is the word "Polack"rascist? [185]

it's not racist as polish is not a race.

Just to clarify...


1. a group of persons related by common descent or heredity.
2. a population so related.
3. Anthropology. a. any of the traditional divisions of humankind, the commonest being the Caucasian, Mongoloid, and Negro, characterized by supposedly distinctive and universal physical characteristics: no longer in technical use.

b. an arbitrary classification of modern humans, sometimes, esp. formerly, based on any or a combination of various physical characteristics, as skin color, facial form, or eye shape, and now frequently based on such genetic markers as blood groups.

c. a human population partially isolated reproductively from other populations, whose members share a greater degree of physical and genetic similarity with one another than with other humans.

4. a group of tribes or peoples forming an ethnic stock: the Slavic race.
5. any people united by common history, language, cultural traits, etc.: the Dutch race.

So yes, it could be deemed as rascist. But like with most of these examples, it very much depends on the context in which it is used.

People like noimmigration do need to be challenged

You wont change his opinion (if indeed it actually is).

If you went into pretty much any local pub in Britain today, you will encounter lots of "noimmigrations". Just because he is the minority on here, doesn't mean there aren't loads like him.

Most of their arguments are as badly constructed as his.

a badly worded topic on a web-forum isn't the best way to discuss it rationally.

It's this posting style which gets the biggest reaction. It's internet fishing at its best/worst...... Sit back and wait for the indignant replies to roll in.

It's a monster which doesn't need feeding. Best to swim past the bait without biting... the fisherman will soon find a new pond when he realises he has exhausted his supply of fish.

Language / IS "MURZYN" word RACIST? [686]

My aunt used to teach a young man from a religious family with the same surname. They called him Isaac.

True story.

Should Cilla Black change her surname? Oh and my friend has an uncle Paki (pet name for Patrick in Ireland)

Welcome to our lovely multi-cultural society :)

It's all about context, as has already been demonstrated:

A word in itself, and here I mean any word, is not offensive but the intentions can be. The word "murzyn" for me is a neutral word, however it can be used as a derogatory word if the person who uses it will have the intentions to offend.
