What are you thankful for? Happy Thanksgiving Day!

28 Nov 2013

Thanksgiving is an American holiday when we get together with friends or family and remember all the things we have to be thankful for.

Personally, I'm most thankful for:

  • My wife, Carrie
  • My health
  • The wonderful readers of my blog and their patience when I don't publish an article for a while :-)

Sorry I haven't published anything in over a month! In October, I was traveling for work almost every week and I'm still trying to catch up on everything.

However, I'd like to share a couple Thanksgiving related things with you that you may not have seen!

I hope you have a great day and thank you!

Vlog: Grocery shopping in the USA!

As you requested in the survey a couple weeks ago, here is a video in English showing daily life in the USA.

You asked for less videos where I'm talking to the camera and more out in the world. So that's what we tried to do!

Please let me know what you think of the video! Do you want more like this?

Vlog: Koszty życia w USA - Mieszkanie

2 Jun 2012

Ludzie ciągle pytają mnie o kosztach życia w USA. Zdecydowałem nagrać filmik o kosztach powiązanych z mieszkaniem z mojego doświadczenie w moim mieście. Jeśli spodoba Wam się, mam pomysły na inne filmiki w tej serii.

Równiez trochę eksperymentowałem z nagraniem w tym filmiku - czasem udało mi się, czasem nie. :-) Od razu przepraszam, że kamera tak dużo się rusza!

Vlog: Spotkanie Kongresu Polonii Amerykańskiej i wiza dla Polaków

7 Feb 2012

W sobotę byłem na spotkaniu Kongresu Polonii Amerykańskiej. Nauczyłem się strasznie dużo na tym spotkaniu, mam o wiele więcej do powiedzenia na ten temat ale filmik już był dość długi, więc to będzie innym razem.

Ale pewnie najbardziej ciekawe dla Was: jesteśmy najbliżej w historii do zniesienia wizy dla Polaków!

Oto jest mój pierwszy filmik na temat Kongresu.

Vlog: Kongres Polonii Amerykańskiej

21 Dec 2011

Tydzień temu spotkałem się z prezesem Kongresu Polonii Amerykańskiej w Wisconsin na kawę. W tym filmiku mówię o tym, czego się nauczyłem o tej organizacji!

Unique American Religions

7 Dec 2011

A few interesting religions began in the United States, including Mormonism and the Jehovah’s Witnesses. The Amish religion did not originate in the United States, but this interesting cultural group is now only found in the U.S. (and a bit of Canada).

Though these three religions are very different, they are all based in the U.S., so I’ve received many questions about them from LinguaTrek readers. All three of these religions are based in Christianity.

Vlog: Learning how to shoot (Broń w USA cz. 2)

Read this text with BiblioBird!

(This is the second part to an earlier vlog in Polish: Broń w USA.)

Along with another couple my wife and I went to the shooting range to learn how to shoot pistols.

It isn't necessary to take a course in order to go out on the range and shoot for the first time, but we felt it was more responsible to learn how to use a gun safely.

Watch the video for clips from the course and on the shooting range!

Vlog: Broń w USA (cz. 1)

25 Oct 2011

Dzisiaj mówię na temat broni w Stanach Zjednoczonych: zasady dotyczące jej kupowania i noszenia ze sobą w moim stanie, Wisconsin.

W sobotę opublikuję filmik, w którym z żoną i inną parą pojechaliśmy na strzelnicę, żeby uczyć się jak strzelać z pistoletu!

Proszę podaj mi poprawki do tego filmiku w serwisie Lang-8.

American Stereotypes: Americans are fat

11 Oct 2011

This is the second installment in a new series of articles called "American Stereotypes," which explores stereotypes about Americans. Today's topic is: Americans are fat.

"Americans are fat" is a pretty common stereotype. Often, the view isn't that Americans are just slightly overweight, but rather that most Americans are downright morbidly obese! Just do a Google image search for fat American if you don't believe me. ;-)

As with many stereotypes, there is some truth behind it.
