        It's a very pretty language. Slavic languages sound beautiful to me. I'm taking classes in college. The Slavic department offers Bulgarian, Czech, Polish, Russian and Slovenian.

        July 7, 2016

        That's great! Slavic languages are really beautiful.

          I'll still anxiously await for the Czech course to be released on Duolingo though. They are, I would like to learn a few.

          Ob'yatiya (объятия) is one of my favorites-it means hugs in Russian :)

          Hug = Ob'yatie (объятие)

          to hug = obnyat', obnimat' (обнять, обнимать)

          Both in Italian ;)

          July 7, 2016

          In Polish, since this is the Polish forum, I'd have to go with wszystko!

          July 8, 2016

          I am learning polish, and my favorite words are "księżniczka" because of how it's different from the other slavic languages (and also sounds beautiful) and "chrząszcz" because of its hard spelling. I also like the verb "potrzebować", it sounds like Russian to me. And of course I think "Grzegorz Brzęczyszczykiewicz" is a fun word.

          July 8, 2016

          My favorite is HAMBURGER in Vietnamese. BTW, HAMBURGER is HAMBURGER in Vietnamese. :D

          July 9, 2016

          koszykówka (which is on duolingo)

          zawiniątko (which, afaik, isn't)

          nasza trzylatka jest zawiniątkiem przyjemności

          July 12, 2016

          3rd one sounds disturbing to say at least... don't say it... just don't

          December 11, 2016

          Caoutchouc - Rubber
          Samfund - Community
          Handwerk - Craft

          July 7, 2016

          LOL, you reminded me of a comment I put in one of the lessons. I love "Kobieta" (woman) as it's the only Polish word I seem to know how to spell, LOL. I just started Polish yesterday by the way.

          My main language is French, so I love the Frenchy sounding words: souris (mouse), chaussette (sock), cerise (cherry), soixante (sixty), abeille (bee), poubelle (trash can). They sound so beautiful I may name my child one of these (if I get a child). I just won't tell her that her name means "trash can" in French, haha.

          July 9, 2016

          Never thought that trash can sounds good in French.

          July 9, 2016

          Good luck with your French studies and your Polish. Learning Polish may be hard at times, but you will also enjoy it. It is a very rich language.
