Useful Phrases for Expressing Opinions
|myślę, że||I think that|
|to prawda, ale||that's true, but|
|moim zdaniem||in my opinion|
|zgadzam się||I agree|
|zgadzasz się?||do you agree?|
|co o tym myślisz?||what do you think?|
|nie zgadzam się||I disagree|
|z jednej strony||on the one hand|
|z drugiej strony||on the other hand|
There are two main things here that might trip you up: the first being that the commas you see above are important, but easy to forget as they don’t feature in the English translation. The second is that moim zdaniem does not mean ‘my opinion’, but ‘in my opinion‘, and is therefore immediately followed by your comment.
Opinions on People
We already know a couple of ways of answering the question jaki on jest / jaka ona jest? (what is he/she like?).
To help, our describing people vocabulary also provides some useful adjectives.
You could give a description using the adjective only, and therefore the nominative case:
On jest gruby – he is fat
Or using both an adjective and a noun, and therefore the instrumental case:
Ona jest zajetą kobietą – she is a busy woman
Now try testing yourself on the above!
