When we would like to ask someone
“how are you?” in Polish language we would ask: . “Jak się masz?”
Typical answer to this question is
(eng. “good, thank you, and you?”). “Dobrze, dziękuję, a ty?”
Depending on our mood, we can answer
“Jak się masz?” question in many different ways, here are some examples:
Świetnie ! – Great!
Bardzo dobrze – Very good
Dobrze – Good
Nieźle – Not too bad
Tak sobie – So so
Bywało lepiej – It could be better
Źle – Bad
Bardzo źle – Very bad
Fatalnie! – Horrible!
Jak się masz? Dobrze, dziękuję, a Ty? Świetnie! Dzięki.
A ty, jak się masz? 🙂

Today I would like to show you how to use
“to be” verb with personal pronouns in Polish language. After that, you will be able to say for example “ I am Patrick”, “He is John”, “They are Irish” but in Polish of course 😉
Let’s start then with personal pronouns!
I am using m. = male and f. = female
General rules for many verbs conjugation in Polish language:
the verb is changing its ending with different personal pronouns the core word stays usually the same f.e.: I am = Ja jestem; You are = Ty jesteś; We are = My jesteśmy… The core word here will be “ jest“.
Next we will move to our verb
“to be” = “być”. It is a bit tricky verb as it changes to “ jest…” as we conjugate it by each person, it doesn’t have to see anything with its basic form “być”. As we can see below:
You can use that construction to tell someone for example your name, nationality or gender:
/ “I am Sylwia, I am Polish, I am a woman”. “Jestem Sylwia, jestem Polką, jestem kobietą”

I can tell you how to say your nationality! 🙂
