In Polish language we use zmiękczenia; their purpose is to soften some of the letters by adding „i” after the consonant: bi, chi, ci, dzi, fi, gi, hi, ki, mi, ni, pi, si, wi, zi .
Below we have the examples of different words with their translation followed by the audio with pronunciation of each single word.
Try to repeat all after me and enjoy learning new words! 🙂
