Polish language progress

I'm getting a little used to the Polish pronunciations. They are quite different than what I know but the words are really fun to say. The spelling, however, freaks me out. In the same way math freaks me out. So far I have to practice the pronunciations without looking at the words or I freeze up.

A few things I've learned:
  • Dzień dobry (good day; jane DOUGHB reh)
  • Jak sie masz? (how are you; yaak sheh maash)
  • Dziękuję (thank you; jane COO yeh)
  • Proszę (please; PROH sha)
  • Przepraszam (excuse me; sheh PRASH ahm)
You can listen to pronunciations of these and other basic phrases here.
