This is actually the first video we ever made, kind of just for fun. We are glad that people are watching it, but we do apologize for a couple of mistakes in the video.

"nie wiem" means "I don't know" in Polish. Originally this video was designed for Polish learners but we quickly realized that it could be useful all around the world. In the future we would like to add some translations to various parts of videos to help beginner learners.

"British" should be capitalized and it is not at all annoying. Personally I find questions that are posed in the positive form rather than the negative form as slightly more pleasant to the ear. Don't you think? ;)

"wtf" is inappropriate for the children and should just be reduced to "what". However, the controversy of text type language and emoticons is certainly a good topic for discussion of English in 2012.

Check out our other Present Perfect videos and thanks for watching!
