The Polish language is spoken by approximately 39 million people in 21 different countries. It is classified as an Indo-European Slavic language, comprised of several mutually intelligible dialects, which include Wielkopolski (Greater Polish), spoken in western Poland; Malopolski (Lesser Polish), spoken in southern and south-eastern Poland;and Mazovian (Mazur), spoken in the capital Warsaw and north-eastern Poland. While Polish is admittedly a complex language to learn with its tongue-twisting pronunciation, sophisticated gender system, seven cases etc., through our flexible language training option, you will be surprised to learn that the consonants sound fairly similar to English, three old tenses have been eliminated (the aorist, imperfect, and past perfect) and the stress of a word remains on the penultimate syllable. Furthermore, with Polish being mutually intelligible with other closely related languages such as Czech, Slovak, and Serbian you will be able to converse not only with Poles but also with speakers of those languages. You will also have a real advantage learning any other Slavonic language such as Belarusian, Bosnian, Bulgarian, Croatian, Macedonian, Russian, Slovene, Serbian and Ukrainian.
Poland is a prime spot to visit with its rich history, delicious dining, placid beaches, and serene slopes. This is the perfect place to visit medieval castles or admire the 15th century Krakow Barbican. Centennial Hall in Wroclaw is a recent addition to the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites and definitely worth exploring. The Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum serves as an important reminder of the 1.1 million people, mostly Jews, who lost their lives at these two concentration camps under Nazi Germany as well as the many others across Europe and should be a stop for any first time visitor to the country. Polish food is amazing, and we recommend sampling pierogis, borscht, and pączki during a long day of exploration.
Poland’s industries include machine building, iron and steel, coal mining, chemicals, shipbuilding, food processing, glass, beverages and textiles. Poland has Europe’s sixth largest economy and continues to grow, attracting many businesses. It also has a large number of universities, where students come from all over the world to study, graduating 400,000 students a year, which is significant for a country with a population of 39 million. Polish language lessons will also be useful to you outside of Poland, as the following countries also have significant populations of Polish speakers:
