What's the difference between obiad and kolaca? I though Obiad was lunch and kolacia was dinner but "A boy is eating dinner" reports both obiad and kolacia as dinner... I'm confused.

It's hard to explain. Śniadanie would be breakfast, Obiad is dinner and kolacja is supper. You would eat kolacja quite late, around 8pm.

The big problem is that some English dialects use "dinner" as the midday meal, and some use it for the evening meal.

It's probably been clear in previous lessons, but what's the difference between chlopak and chlopiec?
