I would have pronounced it correctly or fairly close Cool Polish names aren't too difficult once you get used to seeing how certain things are pronounced. Watching a lot of football helps because you get exposed to all sorts of names and sounds in different languages, which means you can generally pronounce a word in another language that you've never seen before fairly well.
Report ;[p April 14, 2013 7:15 PM BST
yeah its not that bad only some letters are different spelled but its always the same like W in polish is said as V,  J like Y (jerzy - yeshy)  we have some unique syllables that arent even in czech , slovakian or russian but overall its not that bad if foreigners can just spell W and J correctly . same me i never learned  french but can pronounce the way my gf getting wet immediately

Hmm, the German on there says it that way, but everytime I've heard her name pronounced on German tv shows the hosts have pronounced it lɪˈzɪki.

Report smb360 October 3, 2013 1:17 AM BST
Surely the Polish way is the correct way; it's a Polish name.

Here are some more Polish words with the 'ck' sound sandwiched by vowels. They all pronounce 'ck' as 'ts'.
