Wow... Week days and months are really different in Polish to any other language that I know >.<

Only "sobota", "marzec" and "maj" are of Latin origin. All other are Slavic. Even then some Slavic languages (like Russian) converted to Latin-based month names.

Maybe you should more practise west slavic languages :-) (Ok, not slovak) I have only problem with kwiecień, in our language it means May, not April

Finnish has non Latin months of the year, too. Yet, its closest cousin, Estonian, does have Latin-ish months of the year. Heinäkuu = July, elokuu = August, syyskuu = September. The days of the week in Finnish are closer (mostly) to Swedish and German. Keskiviikko = mittwoch = (midweek) Wednesday Georgian has days of the week with a similar concept as Polish. For what it's worth. ☺️
