The first lesson contains, naturally, the phrase "Guten Tag" ("Good day")and the word "Heute" ("today"), so afterwards I absolutely had to listen to "Heut' ist mein Tag" and then a great number of Falco songs, the lyrics plugged into Google Translate.
I have a lot of letters to write, so I do not know when I will get a chance to blog again. But for those who are interested, I have begun Lesson 18 ("Jazda do Pracy", "Trip to Work") of Daily Polish Stories and also Father Józef Tischner's Krótki Przewodnik po Życiu (Short Guide to Life). I received the latter as a birthday gift last year, so I would like to have read at least half by my birthday this year. When that book is done, I will read Lalka, which will take at least a year.
