Hey! In today’s a bit longer than the usual lesson we’ll learn the Polish alphabet As you probably know, we have two ways of reading the alphabet The first way, we can call it a bit more formal one, is useful when we want to spell a word. The second way which is focused on the sounds ascribed to each letter is useful when you want to read some texts written in Polish Today we’ll learn both of them And from now on you’ll be able to read and spell whatever you want in Polish OK. Ready? Let’s start! First, we’ll focus on the more “official” alphabet which comes in handy in spelling. You can see that we have here three grey letters and these are the letters that don’t exist in words of Polish origin You can find them only in words taken from English or other languages And that’s it. Now I’ll read the alphabet and you can repeat after me. Now, we’ll learn the alphabet based on the sounds ascribed to the corresponding letters. With each letter, I will give you an example of a word that starts with it and the example will be also presented in the picture. Ok. Let’s start! a pineapple a banana an onion a house energy a film a game tea an egg coffee a mum a surname fruit (pl) a song a bike sun a dad Attention! Warsaw a thought (in Polish there’s no word that starts with y) a brain a horse a pig an exercise / a work-out bad / badly a frog a boat a scarf time bread a bell / a ring door || jam sound And that’s in for today. I hope this video helped you learn the Polish alphabet. See you in the next video!
