Learning Polish

So, my girlfriend is taking me to meet her Polish parents in Poland… and me without a word of Polish, cripes!

Thankfully we were able to sit together and take a few important words apart to work out what they sound like in English (roughly).

English Sounds Like Written As
Yes Tack Tak
No Nyeh Nie
Please Proshem [Prosheown] Proszę
Thank You Djin koojem Dzię kuję
Good Morning Djin dobri Dzien Dobryń
Good afternoon Djin dobri Dzien Dobryń
Good Evening Dobri vierchor Dobry weczór
Good Night Dobraanots Dobranoc
Hello (friendly) Tjesht Cześć
Goodbye Dovidzenya Dowidzenia

And the basic numbers…

English Sounds Like Written As
One Yeden Jeden
Two Dvah Dwa
Three Tschi Trzy
Four TshTeri Cztery
Five Pjeowntch Pięć
Six Shestj Sześć
Seven Shjedem Siedem
Eight Osiem Oshjem
Nine Djevjeownch Dziewięć
Ten Djesjeownch Dziesięć

I’ll be back with a few more things later… happy Polish :)

P.s. If I got any of these wrong is undoubtadly my fault.

Slippery Slope
Click to expand

First they made me get a mobile, then a website, not long after it was ICQ, IRC, Facebook, Broadband, and a house full of computers. Now it’s the turn of the blog.

Yes folks, I’m sliding down the slippery slope into the mire of the digital world.

Why? you might ask (although probably not, I know I don’t)…

It is starting as a place to collect some random ramblings ranging over my experience of daily things and a collection of thoughts over design and interaction with gadgets. Probably there will be a photo or two thrown in.

So… there you have it… now sit back and wait for the first post :)
