Robot from the Fun Kids Breakfast Show has got himself a new pal – Korneliusz Kog from Poland – the trouble is Robot doesn’t know any Polish words!
Robot’s downloaded a Polish language pack so he can talk to his friend and Sean’s said that if he learns the words, he’ll help him remember them by building them in Minecraft!
Something really cool about Poland is the places you can visit!
One of the most beautiful areas of Poland, favoured by travellers is the Podkarpacie region, which is in the south-eastern part of the country.
It’s been the cross roads of different cultures and religions for centuries, and is home to many beautiful and unique towns and villages.
It’s also where you’ll find many nature reserves and national parks to explore where wild wolves, lynxes and even bears can be found. In winter, it’s a popular place to ski.
So now let’s get talking! Today we’re checking out a letter which you won’t find in the English alphabet at all… ł
Now it may sound like a double-you but this letter looks like a small letter “L” with a diagonal line through the centre. The sound it makes is W.
It crops up in all sorts of polish words – sometimes at the start, like in the word for meadow. Meadow is łąka [WONKA]
Another word that starts with this letter is the word for paw – it’s łapa [WAPA]
Something else beginning with this sound is the word for bench – ławka [WAVKA] That’s a great word for Minecraft.
And the word for arch is another W sound – it’s łuk [WOK] That’s a bit more tricky to build.
A word which ends with the W sound is the word for hammer – młot [MWOT]
