What is your favorite word in the language you are learning!
Hellooooo this is Helen I am just curious about what your favorite word is in the language you are learning. I am learning polish and my favorite word is Jablko it means apple. You can write something in spanish,polish,German and many more just make sure you write what it means because I only know spanish,english,polish so all you do is write your favorite word and pretty much ya. Have amazing time folks!
A few of my favourite Polish words I've learnt on Duolingo are:
Ciasteczka (Cookies - nominative, plural)
Deszcz (Rain - nominative, singular)
Dowodów (Evidence/proof - genitive, plural)
Kłamstwo (Lie - nominative, singular)
Łóżko (Bed - nominative, singular)
Mężczyzną (Man - instrumental, singular)
Posprzątać (To clean up)
Psów (Dog - genitive, plural)
Śmierć (Death - nominative, singular)
Zamek (Castle - nominative, singular)
I'm learning Polish and so far my favourite word is wspomnienia, it sounds so beautiful to me
It's really difficult to chose just one. Can I chose three? In Czech:
Zmrzlina - Ice Cream (Probably my favorite)
Král - King
Zrcadlo - Mirror
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.
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 :)
Hugs in Russian = Ob'yatiya (объятия).
Hug = Ob'yatie (объятие)
to hug = obnyat', obnimat' (обнять, обнимать)
HUGS - Объятия
Prepositional: Об объятиях
HUG - Объятие
Prepositional: Об объятии
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.
My favorite is HAMBURGER in Vietnamese. BTW, HAMBURGER is HAMBURGER in Vietnamese. :D
koszykówka (which is on duolingo)
zawiniątko (which, afaik, isn't)
nasza trzylatka jest zawiniątkiem przyjemności
Caoutchouc - Rubber
Samfund - Community
Handwerk - Craft
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.
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.
