Why do people like Polish so much?

I have no clue and I want to know I speak it (obviously by the name) but why so many?

Polish are very prideful about it. Also, if you go there, and at least try to speak it, you will be more graciously received, as Poland is basically the only nation that speaks it.

There is a pretty intense pride around being Polish. My grandpa spoke polish fluently, but he mostly spoke english around us and passed away a few years ago. I have absolutely no reason to learn Polish. I'm American (Polish by heritage), I want to visit Poland but have no plans, and don't know any Polish speakers. But here I am, practicing every day and learning about Polish culture :)

My wife's family is Polish. They live in Canada, (we're in Australia) and speak English fine but they speak with her on Skype everyday in Polish. I can understand a bit from just having listened to them for so long but I want to be able to speak it. Also, I want our son (18 months old) to be able to speak and understand Polish so I want to learn to help him.

There are a lot of Polish speaking people in Chicago, which is why I want to learn it. A bunch of my friends are Polish.

For me, I like the pronunciation of Polish. I enjoy to listen the pronunciation from different Poles. Sexy elves, humorous wise men, mischievous troublemakers, strong hostesses, alcoholic slaves and so on, I can imagine so many characteristics from their rhythmic pronunciation. :P And I enjoy it.

I like rosół, I like ciasto babci, I like a lot of Polish food.

I want to know the history of Poland by Polish in the future. Especially, I want to know how do poles develop their country after 1989.

Wow, what makes you so interested in Poland? And why? How does it started in your case? Do you have some connections to Poland?

0 0, I would write a lot to answer your questions.

For the basic, I lived in China and Japan. My native language is Chinese, I can speak Japanese.

I came to Poland last year for one month as a exchange student. I felt a lot of behaviours from Poles are balanced (compare with the behaviours I saw from Chinese and Japanese), I am interested in such balanced behaviours. I believe knowing Polish would be an easy way to understand such behaviours, so I began to learn Polish.

About the balanced behaviours, I can write an example.

Most of Japanese little children I saw, when they fell down, they just stood up without any sounds. Like nothing happened.

Most of Chinese little children I saw, when they fell down, they were just crying loudly, even their parents told them "I will buy something for you, don't cry" or "It's not your fault, the load is so bad", the children were still crying loudly.

The Polish little children I saw (when I was in Poland last year), when they fell down, they ere crying. And they stopped to cry when their parents hugged them.

And other reason for me to learn Polish, that is I like a Polish boy, I want to talk with him by his native language.

I started to learn Polish by myself last year, but I felt Polish is too hard. So I gave up after learning Polish alphabet. Then I tried to know Poland by Chinese and Japanese. Unfortunately, the amount of information is not enough for me. So I began to learn English.

I found Duolingo this year, so I began to learn Polish again.

Now, I live in Poland as a long-term traveler.

I realized that it is the Polish language that is the language of love, not French :D

:D yes, Polish is the language of love in my case.

But I have the different opinion about French with you. I heard all of the language version of "Priscillas Song" (The Witcher 3) since I am learning Polish, I noticed French is very lovely and full of temptation.

For me, French is also the language of love. I don't have rank for Polish and French.

Just, Polish language came earlier to my world. :)
