How to order wine. To ask "May I have a glass of red wine?" you say, "Czy mogę prosić o szklankę czerwonego wina?" Czy mogę prosić o szklankę czerwonego wina?

So let's break this one down. It's a little lengthy. Czy, the cz is h sound, so it's tchy. Mogę, the E with an accent underneath it is an elm, so it's moe-gę. Prosić, the C with an accent over it is a ch sound, so it's pro-sheech. Czy mogę prosić o szklankę, the sz is a sh sound and then the e with the accent underneath it is the elm that we saw, so it's shklankeh, shklankeh, shklankeh. Czerwonego, cz is h sound, chervo-nego. Ws in the Polish language sound like Vs, so it's again chervo-nego. Wina, there's that V again, veena.

So all together, a little slowly. Czy mogę prosić o szklankę czerwonego wina? And at full speed, czy mogę prosić o szklankę czerwonego wina? I want to hear you try. Very good.

To ask "May I have a glass of white wine?" you say "Czy mogę prosić o szklankę białego wina?" Czy mogę prosić o szklankę białego wina?

Let's break this one down. The cz is a ch sound, so it's tchy. Mogę, the E at the end with the accent underneath is an elm sound, so it's moe-gę, czy mogę. Prosić, the C with the accent over it is a ch, so it's pro-sheech. Czy mogę prosić o szklankę, the sz is sh and the e at the end is the elm that we saw, shklankeh, shklankeh. Białego, the L with the little line that you see is an accent that turns it into a we sound, so it's bya-wego. Wina, W sound like Vs, so veena. Czy mogę prosić o szklankę białego wina? "Czy mogę prosić o szklankę białego wina?" is how it sounds full speed. Let me hear you try it. Very good.

To ask, "What kind of wine do you have?" you say, "Jaki rodzaj win maćie?" Jaki rodzaj win maćie?

Jaki, the J sound like Ys so it's yakee. Rodzaj, rodzaj, there's that Y sound again at the end. Rodzaj. Win, W sound like Vs, so it's veen. Jaki rodzaj win. Maćie, the C with an accent is a ch, so it's mah-chyea, mah-chyea. Jaki rodzaj win maćie? Go ahead. Give it a try. Very good.
