"I am eating an apple and drinking tea."
Translation:Jem jabłko i piję herbatę.
Often personal pronouns are dropped in Polish, since the verb already tells you which person it is. Therefore „ja jem” and „jem” means pretty much the same thing.
Is i not pronounced in pije? to me it sounds like [p'je] (actually it sounds exactly the same in Ukrainian, and somewhat alike in Russian; in both cases vowel turns to [j] sound, but in Polish I see both i and j together, so I wonder why is that.
