Fifteen football fans and Poland enthusiasts took part in a three-day intensive Polish course organised by the Department of Russian and Slavonic Studies last week. The course covered a range of communicative situations, including ordering a meal and buying a train ticket, as well as offering an invaluable insight into the Polish culture. Here are a couple of phrases that might come in handy to those who missed the course:
Dzień dobry. (Hello)
Jak się Pan/Pani ma? (How are you?)
Nie, nie jestem Anglikiem. (No, I am not English)
Jestem z Irlandii. (I am from Ireland)
Kibicuję Irlandii. (I support Ireland)
Irlandia gola! (Go Ireland!)
Kochamy zielonych! (We love the boys in green!)
The course was followed by a raffle.
