Hi Polish learners! 😊
In this lesson, we will learn how to count from one to ten in Polish. Learning numbers is basic vocabulary that will help you in so many situations, such as telling time, giving your phone number, or asking for prices. So, let's begin!
Numbers and Pronunciation[edit | edit source]
First, let's learn how to say the numbers from 1 to 10 in Polish:
Make sure to practice the pronunciation of each number until you feel comfortable saying them correctly. Remember that Polish has some unique sounds, so don't worry if it takes some time to get them right.
Counting to 10: Examples[edit | edit source]
Now that we know the numbers and the pronunciation, let's see how to use them in context. Here are some examples of counting from one to ten:
- Person 1: jeden (one)
- Person 2: dwa (two)
- Person 1: pięć (five)
- Person 2: sześć (six)

- Person 2: dziesięć (ten)
By practicing with these examples, you can get a feel for how to use the numbers in context. Make sure to practice saying them out loud!
Fun Fact about Polish Numbers[edit | edit source]
Did you know that the Polish language has two different forms of the number "two"? The first one, "dwa," is used for masculine nouns, and the second one, "dwie," is used for feminine nouns. For example, "two cars" would be "dwa samochody," while "two houses" would be "dwie domy." This can be a bit confusing when you're first learning Polish, but it's an important detail to keep in mind.
Using Numbers in Everyday Life[edit | edit source]
Learning to count to ten is just the beginning of your Polish language journey. To continue improving your Polish Vocabulary, you can also use the Polyglot Club website. Find native speakers and ask them any questions!
You can also use numbers in everyday conversation by learning some simple phrases. Here are a few examples:
- ile to kosztuje? (how much does that cost?)
- która godzina? (what time is it?)

By using numbers in context, you can start to build confidence and fluency in your Polish language skills.
