Today I was listening to a polish radio interview & doing my best to keep up with the general gist of the report. My listening comprehension isn’t yet to the level where I can understand even half of what is being said by a native speaker, but I usually understand enough of the words to know roughly what they’re talking about – even if I don’t know what they’re saying about it..
I came away today rather confused though because no matter how many times I played it back, I couldn’t figure out what they were saying in one section and it all came down to a series of words which (to me) sounded practically the same. So the idea for a new post was born.
Similar words or podobne słowa.
Today – ones which (to me) all sound a bit too close to Cześć to easily differentiate when I hear them spoken quickly in a sentence! I decided it would be useful for me to write them all down in one place so I can see them together and hopefully learn to tell them apart better (each word is clickable to hear the pronunciation)
Cześć – Hi
Część – Part
Często – Often
Czeski – Czech
Czysty – Clean (adj)
Czynsz – Rent (noun)
Ciężki – Heavy
Cieszę się – To be pleased with
