Unrecommendation # 1 Amica dishwashers (Polish)


Playout date: 6 April 2007
Duration: 2:38

This is an unrecommendation video for Amica dishwashers, because we regretted the purchase of this, having had endless problems with it, 5 service calls in two years, often to no effect. Read the rest of this entry

Masz Ochotę – here you have Ochota!


Playout date: 2 April 2007
Duration: 8:08

I hope you enjoy the gallery part, showcasing photos of mine taken on a Spring walk like a hanami, with Sophie, feeding the birds in Szczesliwicki Park.

Her little cute face is the only redeeming feature in this clip!

Today’s lessons is about 1a verbs, adverbs and vocabulary building.

Quote of the clip: “Ostorozhno, tam gulyayut po-russki!”
