Language / Chodzic versus Isc. When and why? [18]

it also translates to "I'm going" as in "I'm going to the movies, tomorrow" (Idę jutro do kina or Pójdę jutro do kina, but the first one is what's more commonly used).

is this the kind of future form you meant?

as of the future form of "chodzić"... "będę chodzić?" - I'll go to, I plan to go to", again a regular activity, as in "I'll go to that school"

Language / Chodzic versus Isc. When and why? [18]

chodzic is used as:
- to be able to walk (children, someone who's recovered after an injury, etc.)
- to work - in terms of a device
- to walk, but as an activity without a direction/destination - for instance: to walk in circles, to walk for the sake of walking (like to collect thought or sth.)

- a regular activity of doing something described in simple present tense in english (I go to the gym)

iśc, this one you'd use most of the time, when you'd use "to go" in english in continuous tense , so in most other cases when describing an activity of going somewhere at a particular moment

Polish is a simplified form of Russian after all!

Language / Dwa vs. dwie in Polish [85]

what? how old are you? this is a dead and rotten form, never used. maybe somewhere in small villages next to the eastern border, where the language has got Russian influence and schooling sucks ass, but no fking way, noone speaks like that these days! not in Poland, they don't.

Language / "Poles" or "Polish people" - which is better to use? [200]

haha, this is a nice word play. good to learn

If people from Poland are called "Poles," why aren't people from Holland called "Holes"?

what woud the Russian and Belgian be in this scheme?
Rolls, Balls?

the Dutch don't like to word Holland too much.

Language / About usage of the special Polish letters: ą ć ę ł ń ó ś ż ź [28]

'zwrotow'

you can't find this one ('zwrotów'), because it's not in it's basic form (singular, first case - denominator), it is 'zwrot' you should be looking for in this case

it's not the presence of those letters, that makes it hard to find a word in a dictionary

Language / Polish Swear Words [1242]

pojebany/a/e (m., f., n.) is already quite vulgar, i think ot translates to 'f... up'
in fact there's quite a number of words that translate to it

Language / Polish Swear Words [1242]

świr (the word 'świrus' originates from) means 'nutcase, nut, nuts'

Nutcase Bartek would be the translation

it isn't insulting really, świrus has a positive feeling to it as in calling 'crazy' someone who's positively crazy, therefore amusing

Polonia / Ever been to Sweden? [185]

ever been to Sweden?

twice, each time around an hour or two, this is how long it takes for the ferry to re-pack, change passengers and start back to Poland. does it count? ;)

UK, Ireland / Warning to British people visiting Poland!! Don't get drunk and smash the place up! [447]

We liberated you from Nazi oppression, our lads sacrificing their lives for your freedom

i don't think so, although a longer discussion would be pointless. :)

Why is it wrong to visit Poland...

it's not. ignoring those voices is the best policy. myself, I find it iteresting to meet foreigners in Poland and learn about their experiences in my country, especially since only throughout recent years we see large increase in numbers of westerners visiting the place (except for the Germans, they've always been there, at least where I come from). don't worry mate, you want to go and have cheaper fun in Poland, GO AHEAD! :)

Here comes a little crab (a little cancer to be exact) nieboraczek (this word has no meaning really, an invented word that rhymes with 'raczek')

when it stings/tweaks you there will be a mark

here you've got a classification of languages based on the difficulty of learning by an English speaking student.

right, bring it on, then maybe we'll turn everything upside down and somehow prove that she's the victim. :)

no, I was kidding, i'm interested, too.
