Is anyone learning Polish? On BBC, you can learn Polish, Urdu, Punjabi, and many others. Any ideas?

Polish! Polish! Polish!


Polish please! Polish is wonderful. English alphabet (more or less), an interesting case system and conjugations, wonderful literature.


Correction: More-or-less latin alphabet :) -- the 7 cases and the fact that proper nouns change stems depending on case and gender will bend your mind


I saw that Polish people can learn English but I would also like to able to learn Polish as an English speaker. Any chance


Sure. I speak Polish as a native English speaker. It's challenging though; more so than say French or Spanish would be because they don't share any root language structure. Unless it is a modern or scientific term there is likely nothing phonetically similar in Polish as in English and given the disjointedness of Polish and English language culture (Polish words don't sprinkle society as Spanish does in the U.S) there will be very little familiarity.
