Labels - a practical way to learn some new vocabulary :)

Prepare as many as you'd like :) Self-stick notes work great and they should not ruin your furniture or other items. Each week I will ask volounteers to share words they've learned in Polish. We'll spend the first 10 minutes on modelling the pronounciation for new vocabulary you will label. Think ahead of the objects from your household that you want to know in Polish. Thanks!

Hello Class! 
Thanks for stopping by :)  
Let's use this blog as an additional platform for our language course. Please come back often as I will be posting updates as we go :)
                                Do zobaczenia!

Cześć i Sześć :)

Cześć - I think it must be one of the most popular words in Polish :) 
It happens to contain some characteristic sounds (cz, ś, ć) that can be challenging for a beginner student. Below you can find my pronunciation tips :) Keep on practicing! Get this one, and you actually score 2 words: hi and bye :)

How about replacing cz with sz
You see, that's not that complicated and you've learned a new sound and a new word :)
