Btw, bytem is a valid word in Polish, it is a singular instrumental of byt ‘being’ (used both as existence, state of being, and as a creature).

Huh. That's interesting.

Wow, how did I misspell that! :oops:

I didn't even notice until you pointed it out. And even then I couldn't believe it!

On the plus side, I'm very pleased to see I got the use of bardziej right. So far.

Dzięki! :)

In all honesty, I haven't even been checking my answers for quite a while now... :lol: I do generally check against yours, though (haven't done that yet this time!).

Even though I know we have the answer key for some of the exercises, I don't tend to check either. :P

I don't think I've ever checked.

I'm still confused by this pair of sentences btw: Wiem, że dziś wieczorem ty jesteś/będziesz zajęta. Czy pojutrze, w środę, będziesz wolny? I guess they made a typo somewhere?

Are both of them directed at the same person? If so, it looks like a typo. They should be the same gender.

Unless they are spoken to a non-binary person who themself mixes masculine and feminine forms and encourages other people to do the same when speaking to them (I’ve heard about such usage and seen it on the net, although I don’t know personally anybody doing that).

Yeah, that would seem to be a typo.

I thought it should be moją siostrą, not sure why I changed my thought.

All and all, I'm glad that those are all the mistakes I made. Dzięki! :)

I was so confused by No. 11, but after thinking about it, I guess Marek isn't free if he's going to a concert lol.

And lol I forgot that s isn't a word in Polish(?) and they use z instead, unlike Croatian.

I seem to have skipped over a few things in Unit 4 (packet 5 No. 13 - 18). Oops. Let's get those done first before getting deeper into Unit 5.
