phrases you have learned?

Being the sweet the person I am (cough), my first Polish phrase was kocham cię :)

My very non-Polish mother worked in a very multicultural environment when I was a lad. She worked with all sorts of european types on the line making Televisions and Microwave ovens. There was a Polish woman there that taught her a few words, Kur#a among them. Well I guess my dear mother never really appreciated the true spirit of the foreign word, and was prone to drop it around the house on occasion. Guess what wonderful word I learned, but had zero comprehension of it's meaning? Guess what Polish word I first uttered in the presence of my future bride? Went over exceptionally poor, I might add.

1st goodbye
2nd goodnight

1st phrase: how are u today. i then learnt that noone in Poland actually uses it.

note: when one asks for a translation it is also worth asking if Poles would actually use it.

Ratunku! = Help!

Pali się! = Fire!

(My Polish teacher was very practical, straight to the point, no pleasantries or warming up in the bull-pen whatsoever!)

I can't really remember, a bit of everything. Swear words definitely, sto, beton, betoniarka, chodź, czekaj, dzień dobry, dobry wieczór and na razie would have been some of the first also.

I may not spell these correct but my grandma taught me(oh i guess ill just use google translate then!):
ciotka=aunt
dupa=butt,fanny
babcia=grandma
girl (used google translate and it came up as one crazy word - i learned it as pronounced - leo-cay-dee-uh)
pierogi = more with the polish 'tongue' i was taught to pronounce haha

and maybe a few others is all i know from both sides of my family (polish from my dads, polish and english from my moms)

Jesce Polska nie zgineła!

a true narodak. :)

Sadly, it's this word: kurwa

sadly? that's a great word, very utilitarian.. it can be used in so many settings... and it is pretty much the same word in other slavic languages.. there are really no downsides except for it being a curse word. haha

What were the first Polish words and phrases you have learned?

ah the usual, mama. tata, babcia, itd. ;)

leo-cay-dee-uh

what in the hell is that?

I'm Pole but my friend not and his first polish word was "Cześć". This had a strange sound and was very funny :)

Your first phrase was probably nadmuchiwana lalka.
