  1. Hello! I was able to get through Lesson 1 identifying the different cases but now it just got a whole lot harder. I copied down the declination tables and I am still a bit confused with the endings. For example. #25 asks for the Nominative Singular Neuter of the word zwierz_

    According to the table that I have, the Nominative Singular of zwierz should be either just zwierz or zwierza but why is it zwierzę. I didn’t see such an ending on the table. I have two tables in fact. One that describes Singluar/Plural Gender cases (such as singular masculine, feminine) and gender noun cases (such as masculine noun thing, masculine noun animal, mascunline noun person). I am a bit confused here! I need a bit of help!

    1. -ę can also be a usual ending for neutra. as well as -um, -e and -o. “imię” would be one example. Polish people pronounce the “ę” at the end of a word often just as “e”, while within the word sometimes like “en” (pięć) or “em” (pasta do zębów) or the actual nasal sound. But yeah, never ask ‘why?’ when your learning polish… (:

  2. The correct form is zwierze.
    I know this because Polish is my native language 🙂

  3. I think this exercise would be much better if you gave the nominative form and then gave 4 complete choices. For example #89. What is the genitive singular of spoleczenstwo. a)spoleczenstwa, b) spoleczenstwe, c) spoleczenstwu, d) spoleczenstwi.

    This is important I think because some words change the consonant, or drop a vowel before the ending is added.

  4. Thank you for these exercises. I have lived in Poland for years, am corrected (not enough…) by native speakers, hear these words and forms used every day — and still get them wrong. Maybe some day… though I need to apply myself more to exercises like these. Fine initiative. Thanks again.

    1. Rob, drilling is one of the best ways to learn. Do the exercises a few times even until you learn them by heart.

  5. hi there,
    i know that Polish language is so hard but don’t even try to figure out why it is “zwierzę” – just because. i’m Polish and i’m really surprised that you’re keen on learning my native language. if you have any questions, i am willing and able to help you.
    cóż więcej mogę dodać, możecie pisać do mnie na: annette_doc@vp.pl – będzie mi naprawdę bardzo miło 🙂

  6. Although I quite enjoyed doing the exercise, I didn’t like the notion of endings for things that were not really the proper endings. For example, in no. 53, the ending is really ‘ami’ and not ‘i’. It would make more sense to give as the starting point what would be the starting point in the dictionary, in this case ‘wyspa’, and then ask for the instrumental plural. Thanks for providing the opportunity to practise all the same.

  7. I’m a real beginner and I keep learning new vocabulary every day for hours. My problem is that if I don’t know what a word means I just can’t bring myself to just guess (haha) what it means. I looked up every single word that I didn’t know. Good exercise but after a while very trying. On the whole I found it very very helpful and now I go through again. Maybe it will be easier. Thanks.

    1. You need to make flashcards for yourself, believe me flashcards at the way to learn a language. I will be selling some professional ones but use index cards for now. All I can say is keep trying and be patient as Polish takes time.
