Dear friends in Polish Forum Long story short, I would like to ask you the difference between Poproszę and Proszę. When I first learned Polish, I didn't even know Poproszę is a perfect verb, derived from Proszę. Now, I know the difference between "perfect verb(czasowniki dokonane)" and "imperfect verb(czasowniki niedokonane)". And I also know perfect verbs always indicate future. cf) Zadzwonię do niej (I will call her) Dzwonię do niej (I'm calling her or I call her) (...am I right?) So, here is my question: If I say "Poproszę na Lotnisko Chopina" to a taxi driver, it literally means "I will ask (you to take me) to Chopin Airport"? It just sounds silly. Why would I make it a future tense? Can I say "Proszę na Lotnisko Chopina", then? ... At the beginning of learning Polish, I just memorise "poprosić" as a verb I can use to request something. I didn't know at all the connection with "prosić". Now I know, and it's really confusing... Any help, please? Thanks in advance.
