ok so how come usually in these sentences there's either no swój at all or it's as twój (or mój, etc.) but here the "swoim" is the default translation? also why is the first ą in osiągnąłeś pronounced as ą and the second 1 pronounced as a?
Probably that's finally a sentence from after the moment that "swój" was introduced. And it was unfortunately introduced way too late. Many sentences sound less natural because of that as they should've used "swój" but they couldn't as it was not yet introduced.
I think it's okay. It's more like "osiągnołeś", which is the actual result of what a Polish person pronounces unless he/she focuses on pronouncing it hypercorrectly.
Now all of the course creators think that "swój" should have been introduced basically in the same skill as "mój", "twój" etc. Well, it's a lesson for the future, unfortunately.
Perfective. Imperfective would be "osiągałeś", but it wouldn't make much sense in this sentence.
I forgot to report - this sentence has an error, it should say "Co osiągnąłeś w swoim życiu, Pan Lebowski?" ;)
But this sentence is incorrect. It should be "Co osiągnąłeś w swoim życiu, Panie Lebowski?" or more polite "Co Pan osiągnął w swoim życiu, Panie Lebowski?".
Thanks for clarifying! I'm still learning for sure... I just really like that movie!
"accomplish" yes, but not "did", I think. This suggests that your life is over and you're on your deathbed, or at the Pearly Gates.
What have you accomplished in your life is questioning what goals have you reached up to this point in your existence. There is no implication that you have reached the end of your string, a little colloqialism tossed in for relief. thrown in to demonstrate the point.
Although not literally the same, 'with your life' sounds better than 'in your life'
Could just be the religious nature of the upbringing I had, all the sentences where 'with' is better are things like "what have you achieved with these tools?", we were brought up considering life as a tool towards the eternal. Even though the religious thought behind it fades, the language influence will still be there. Could be too niche to add?
I used achieved and it was rejected, accomplished was all it would accept.
