Step 3 : The indefinite article in Polish

The indefinite article is what we call the word a in English. The indefinite article is used with nouns in English (a book, a chair, a door etc.). To get started in Polish, pick just 3 important nouns. We suggest you learn the nouns książka, krzesło and drzwi (book, chair, door). Once you have learned these nouns, you can then learn how to use each noun with the indefinite article. This is easy in Polish, because in Polish, there is no indefinite article. So the word książka can mean book or a book, the word krzesło can mean chair or a chair and the word drzwi can mean door or a door. You can scroll to the top of this page to see a short lesson about the indefinite article in Polish including useful examples. Once you have learned to use the indefinite article with the Polish nouns książka, krzesło and drzwi, you're ready to move on to Step 4 (the definite article in Polish).
