Lucy Turns Pages: Polish greetings: Learn Polish with me!

Polish greetings: Learn Polish with me!

Hi everyone! I've been trying to teach myself Polish for a while and I thought it would be fun to create some blog posts as I go along to help myself study so I will be doing regular posts on Polish. If you'd like to see all of my posts check out my learning Polish page. Please note this is not a study guide, if I make any mistakes please let me know!

Saying hello
cześć- hi/ hello (informal)
dzień dobry- hello/good day/ good morning/ good afternoon (formal)
dobry wieczór- good evening

Saying goodbye
cześć- bye (informal)
do widzenia- goodbye (formal)
dobranoc- goodnight
pa, pa- bye bye (informal)
do jutra- see you tomorrow (informal)
do zobaczenia- see you later (formal/ informal)
trzymaj się- take care (informal)

Notes- don't ask how are you when greeting someone in Polish (unless they are friends or family and you haven't seen them in a while)

In informal situations, if you haven't seen someone in a long time you can ask:
co słychać?- how are things?
co nowego?- what's new?
co u ciebie?- what's new with you?

If you are asked co słychać?, you can reply with:
dziękuję, wszystko dobrze- fine, thank you 
dziękuję, wszystko w porzadku- everything is fine, thank you
nic nowego- nothing new
po staremu- much the same
a co u ciebie?- and how are you?
