    Awwww, thank you!

    Have you used Google Translate? It's still clunky in english-polish translations. This sentence can be translated back into english more or less as "Happy Birthday! A buddy of mine". It's alomst correct though.

    Darnit! actually I didn't, I just recalled it from the time I was in Poland, but I barely learned just basic stuff. I don't think I ever got the grammar rules right. I thought this would be as easy as mój=my kolega=friend, but I guess not
    Thanks for the lesson xD

    Thanks, Vidan. :3

    @ Leorgathar - Ah, I see. Polish is a hard language to learn. I'm impressed with your knowlege anyway.
    "Mój kolega" means literally "my friend/buddy" but it's only corect in sentence like "This is my friend" - "To jest mój kolega" (when talking about him, nominative). If you want to talk to your friend you use "kolego" (e.g. "Cześć, kolego" - "Hi, buddy" - vocative).

    "Kolega" is male and "kolega" female. I wouldn't want to learn Polish if it wasn't my native language. xD

    BTW. You can pretty much speak Polish without declensions and be understood. It just sounds really weird and... feral?

    Haha I always thought German was really hard with our 4 cases (Declensions). However, I think we're lucky to have only four of them (nominative, accusative, dative and genitive. However the genitive is very often replaced by a dative case and people got quite used to it).


    Anyways... happy birthday to you, Nit
    Keep up the good work and I hope you could enjoy your birthday.
