Can you say "guy" for chłopak?

We do accept it in some sentences, I guess it suits this one. OK, added.

can someone please explain the difference between:

chłopczyk, chłopak, chłopiec

Thanks

chłopczyk < chłopiec < chłopak.

It's an age thing. "chłopczyk" is the youngest, then "chłopiec", then "chłopak". There are no clear age borders, it's very subjective.

Is there really a difference in Polish between large and big? If so, what is the word for large, as in a large dog.

No, "large" is generally accepted for "big" in this course. This sentence for some reason had "huge" instead, which is too much in my opinion. Added "large".
