    How do you prononce "ł"?
    As hard "l" or very short "u"?

    Ola - your Polish sounds very good although you sort of, tiny little bit spoke it with a rather Russian than Polish intonation, but it's not very noticable

    as for "ł", I'd say it's very much alike English "w".

    Wowik - Are you Polish, by any chance? You seem to be pretty advanced.

    Когда я был маленький, то по-русски не выговаривал 2 звука: "Л твёрдый" и "Р". "Л твёрдый" у меня звучал как раз на польскй манер.
    А "Р" у меня до сих пор почти на французкий манер (грассирующий вариант).

    you're quite right, there is such thing as "sceniczne ł", and it is pronounced like Russian л, it's not very common though, and mostly used by elder people, especially actors. I don't think I've ever heard anyone younger than 60 use it.

    My mother is from belorussian polish family.

    Jak treba czytać "się"?
    Ma babcia czytała "сен" a nie "шен".
    Czy to jest możliwą formą?
    Czy to jest dialect lub ma babcia zapomniła polski?

    *lepiej powiedzieć "moją"; "mą" jest, oczywiście, poprawne gramatycznie, ale brzmi dość g

    hmm, I guess I could say "ще" is pretty close to the truth, only pronounced a bit shorter. I'm going to have an access to a computer with a mic later today, so I"ll just record it, it's way easier when you hear it.
