Quick tip of the day - remember to use "Raz" in certain situations when counting.

For example, when playing board games if you count the number of moves to make then you should use "Raz" (which means the same as 1/jeden).

It is often translated as once.

You also use it to say things like:

  • "Once or twice" raz czy dwa,
  • Not even once ani razu,
  • Once a month raz na miesiąc or once a year raz na rok

BTW both Jeden raz and raz can both also be translated as 'one time'.
