Let’s kick the #polishlesson4 off 😉

Let’s try to raise the crossbar….

The #polishlesson4 is about how to ask for information about a place and directions.
We are now trying to get into #polish a little deeper even though we are still on the basics.

However, we are slowing going forward and you are making big progress by memorizing the new #polish vocabulary and trying to use it.
Read the table below and find out the typical #polish expressions used to ask for direction…let’s travel together into the #polish land…
