(Praise Post) I love some of the cute vocabulary this course gives early on

In my habit of posting praise when I see something of worth, I was originally going to post a comment on a language lesson where the term "brązowa spodnie" came up--as that term in part of question asking if you need them made me giggle.

When it turned out you cannot common on specific lesson portions, I decided to flesh out my praise here. As the Polish course here has been one that makes me smile and gives me joy... as you appear to have all kinds of cute nice things early on to work with. I enjoyed having the words smaczne and ciasteczka show up for interaction fairly early on... as it brought a smile trying to picture the events happening with cookies and things being tasty.

I would definitely recommend the Polish course as being one of the more whimsy filled courses on DuoLingo and something that brightens up my day. Thank you.

Thank you very much for your kind words, I hope you will like the rest of the course as well :)

P.S. I hope it's not rude to mention it under such a nice post, but it's "brązowe spodnie", as "spodnie" are plural by definition :) Cheers!

Nieprawda, !

A sense of humour can definitely be expressed in Polish, and Polish can be used in a humorous way.

I particularly enjoyed learning the everyday phrase "To twój słoń." :)

Polish is not funny

Whimsy and humour can be expressed in any language... even lojban.

I will admit my giggling at brązowe spodnie might be based more on an English idiom that might not translate well... but these lessons take a fun whimsy approach that is nice to see every now and again.

Naaah. It's kinda unwieldy once you get to know it well enough, but it can be as funny as any other language :D

Agree! I love the little phrases that sometimes come out of nowhere. At the top of the list is Kawa to nie śniadanie.
