Is this correct? When sie has a capital S letter the słowa means YOU and when it is the lower case it means she or they.

When you get a chance could you proszę give me some examples/przykłady?

Hi Ania, I'm not entirely sure but usually Polish się is a part of so-called reflexive verbs. These are verbs for showing an action done to oneself (they are also in French language). Please compare:

myć to wash (something a car, a floor, etc.) myć się to wash oneself

ubierać to dress (somebody or something a child, a mannequin) ubierać się to dress oneself

uczyć to teach uczyć się to learn

Some more of these verbs:

czesać się to comb

golić się to shave

zdarzyć się to happen

spóźnić się to be late

zapisać się to sign up

rozebrać się to undress

upić się to get drunk

zgubić się to get lost
