Thirteen Things you need to know how to say if you are ever in Poland.
I've been to Poland three times, and found these phrases to be useful, if not necessary for getting around. Please feel free to try them out with the phonetic spellings I've written out for you. Make sure you roll your r's when you try these out.

1. Good day: jean dub reh

2. Good night: dub raw nuts

3. Where is your bathroom: jeh yest foy voo stamp poo?

4. Thank you: jan koo yeh

5. May I have a beer: muh zhem dust autch pee vah?

6. I would like to go to the airport: yah ksem each duh luht nee skuh

7. They stole my money: uh nee ooh krad ly moy peen yun zih

8. Do you come here often: chen stuh tih psih hujd jeesh?

9. Where can I buy pretty shoes: jeh yah musz nah coop each pyenk nyeh boot ih?

10. Do you speak English: chih tih moviesh pawn gehl skoo?

11. What?: tsuh?

12. You look hot: tih vih glun dahsh soo per

13. Where is Agnes’s house: jeh aug nyeh shka myeh shka? (Equivalent to the Donde esta casa de Pepe phrase that we all learn in high school Spanish.)

Well, that's how you say it. I've been saying it all my life and never really noticed it until I had to spell it phonetically. LOL

Nice!! Too bad our polish international student just left for home today. I'd be talking to him with your phrases for sure!
