Well yesterday Cracola and I tried to learn Polish but as expected, we failed miserably. Our program coordinator, bless her little heart, tried to say the words so we could spell them out phonetically on our little cheat sheet. However, I couldn't even figure out what letters to write down to make the sounds that were coming out of her mouth. So, Cracola and I's sheets have things like "NAZY VAM SHELL", "JEN-COOL-YO", "YAK SHEMUSH", "SHEP-PRO-SHAM" and my personal favorite, "POO-NUTZ". And the numbers? We better live at 0 Wielopole Street because we can't say anything else but zero which in Polish is zero.
We also got to meet some really
great and fun annoying people who were in the program before us and survived.
