'Cock Armchair'

cock amateur


I think the 'armchair' sounds a little closer. 'Amateur' has too many syllables.....although its more fun to say.

What would a 'Cock Armchair' look like? lol

A little too hard on the "K" at the beginning but this is how you should pronounce it :>

Ko- hom chehw as plk123 writes (w/ stress on the "hom" part)

(and smile when you say "cheh" ! :)
Seriously, it softens the "ch" sound. Anglo speakers tend to overpronounce the Polish "ci" sound making it sound like "cz". There's actually quite a difference to the Polish ear.

My version:
ko-khum-che
as there is no "ch" sound in English and if you put "h" they read it as a real H which on the other hand Poles can´t say...

How do you prenounce Lubię Cię

If you don't pronounce the letter R (in the standard British English kind of way), you could approximate Lubię Cię to:

Loob yeah chair.

Stress the first syllable.
But, as always with Polish, it's slightly more complicated than that.
Yes, it does mean "I like you".
