Hint: Polish uses feminine, masculine and neuter, requiring agreement. Polish also has a plural “you” (wy). Don’t forget that verbs are conjugated differently for I/you/we/they/he/she/it/you plural, but we’ll just cover the verb endings for “I” (ja) here, in present form. Polish grammar is pretty complicated, so we’ll just keep things simple here for this exercise.
