“Nie sądź książki po okładce” and other Polish sayings. Posted by on Sep 30, 2016 in Grammar, Phrases

It’s always good to know sayings in different languages. I have to say that it was always my favorite part of learning a new language. Todays saying are kind of “every day life saying”. Enjoy!

My name is Kasia Scontsas. I grew near Lublin, Poland and moved to Warsaw to study International Business. I have passion for languages: any languages! Currently I live in New Hampshire. I enjoy skiing, kayaking, biking and paddle boarding. My husband speaks a little Polish, but our daughters are fluent in it! I wanted to make sure that they can communicate with their Polish relatives in our native language. Teaching them Polish since they were born was the best thing I could have given them! I have been writing about learning Polish language and culture for Transparent Language’s Polish Blog since 2010.
