trouble with "able" - There senteces in my Polish course that are very similar and use 2 different words for "can or able"
Czy jego żona potrafi gotować? (Can his wife cook?)
Czy twoja dziewczyna unie gotować (Can your girlfriend cook?) potrafi=can
umie= can
In the lesson they seem to be interchagable.
Proszę pomóc mi.

- You are not alone Ithink 'polski" has many situations like this .Ihave no idea why they give more then one meaning to a word!
