How do I pronounce "Kocham Ciebie"?

Well I haven't heard you, so I don't know.

Snark aside, no one says kocham ciebie, they say kocham cię "KOH-hahm chyeh"
The answer is "Ja ciebie też" (Yah CHYEH-byeh TESH, literally "I you too".

The ch in kocham is somewhere between ch in Bach (or loch) and English h in happy.
The vowels are like Spanish or Italian but -ie = ye (the y is pronounced together with the consonant in front of it).

"Kocham Ciebie"?

I would have thought that this should have been written differently. Ja mam coś od ciebie but ja kocham cię.

My grandma used to say to me ja kocham ciebe bardzo and I thought it meant I love you so much. Am I right?

Am I right?

Yes, but if you form this sentence this way you emphasize 'bardzo' (much), as if you were answering a question like:

Kocham cię tylko trochę, a ty?
Ja kocham ciebie bardzo!

I love you only a little bit, and you?
I love you very much!

Merged: Spelling Help Please? ("I love you, give me a kiss")

When I was young my Grandmother taught me how to say "I love you, give me a kiss" In Polish (I wish she had taught me more), though I know how to say it and know what it means... I have NO clue how to spell it in Polish...

Can someone please help?
Thank you.

Yah-chee ko-hom die mee-ya boo-shee

It could be
Kocham cię. I love you.
Buzi? inflected as if asking a question.

say something funny like:

'Kocham cię takkkkk! Buziaczki!!' (or as my mother would say: pocaluj minia) lol

phonetically, erm.... 'Ko-Hahm Cheh Taaaak' lol .. 'Boo-zhach-kee'
