I do not speak the language that Nowy Czas magazine (the free newspaper in the free newspaper bins outside southwark station) is written in (I think it might be Polish) but I am keen to know what Nowy Czas means and how to pronounce it. Can anyone help? Thanks.

Yes, it's Polish. It means "New Time".

I would say it's kind of pronounced a bit like this:

Nowy - Norvwee ('Nor' as in north, 'vwee' as in the letter V but with a w, but a soft almost unpronounced w)

Czas - kind of like a soft 'chass'

So it doesn't mean: "It's nearly time to make cider with the SE1 cidernauts. Don't miss this great opportunity to make some friends and some cider. Check out the informative threads in Chatter and SE1 Socials", then?

...if you press it, they will come.

Ah well. Languages have never been a strong point of mine.

Cider, on the other hand....

I hadn't realised until now how mangled my Polish had got as I transferred it from Word, where I have Polish characters, to here!
