  • 3-Minute Polish – Lesson #3 – Greetings

1. Bye in Polish

  • Bye
  • Pa

say bye in polish

This is the easiest, must-know way to say Goodbye. It’s very easy to spell [Pa]. Just remember, his is not a formal way to say “Goodbye”. Friends (mostly girls) always say [Pa].

2. Bye in Polish 2

  • Bye
  • Cześć
  • Pronounced: Che-sh-ch

say bye in polish

This is another informal way to say bye in Polish – used by young people. Very commonly used. The thing is that this word means “hi” and “bye” at the same time, so you can say [Che-sh-ch] at the beginning and at the end.

3. Goodbye in Polish

  • Goodbye
  • Do widzenia
  • Pronounced: Do vidzenya

say bye in polish

This is a general, polite way to say goodbye or bye in Polish. If you want to be polite in ending the conversation, use it. You can use this with your friends, but it’d be a bit strange to be so formal with friends. It’s better just to say [Pa] or [Na razie].

4. See you in Polish

  • See you
  • Na razie
  • Transliteration: Na rashie

say bye in polish

Two quick words to say “See you” in Polish. I’d say this is the most popular informal way to say bye, and people in Poland use it often. It’s informal, you can use it with friends. Though girls like to say [Pa] and guys use more [Na razie]. But, it doesn’t really matter, it’s okay if you use both.

5. See you in Polish

  • See you later
  • Do zobaczenia
  • Pronounced: Do zhobachenya

say bye in polish

You can say this phrase to anybody because it sounds polite, but young people rather say [Na razie] than [Do zobaczenia]. If you want to show courtesy by saying “see you later,” add “later” – “póżniej.”  As a result, we have [Do zobaczenia póżniej] – in English, it’s pronounced as: Do zhobache:nya pushniey.

6. See ya in Polish

  • See ya
  • Do zoba
  • Pronounced: Do zoba

say bye in polish

{Do zobaczenia} is polite, so we need to follow up with something casual. In Poland, that young people like to use their own slang; that they make shorter versions of proper words/phrases. Instead of [Do zobaczenia] they just say [Do zoba].

7. See you tomorrow

  • See you tomorrow
  • Do jutra
  • Pronounced: Do you-tra

say bye in polish

{Do jutra} is a common way to say “See you tomorrow”. Good phrase, which you can use everywhere, with friends or with colleagues at work.

8. Good night in Polish

  • Dobranoc
  • Good night
  • Pronounced: Dubranoch

say bye in polish

10. Good luck in Polish

  • Good luck
  • Powodzenia
  • Pronounced: Povodzenia

say bye in polish

{Povodzenia} is a great word to say at the end of the conversation. Polish people use this word when they want to show courtesy at the end of the dialogue. {Povodzenie} means {luck} and {Povodzenia} means {Have a good luck}.

Slang Ways to Say Bye in Polish

10. See ya

  • See ya!
  • Narka!

say bye in polish

11. Bye! (slang)

  • Bye
  • Hejka

The word “Hejka” comes from the word “Hej” and is used to say either hi or bye in Polish by young people.

12. Goodbye (slang)
