Reasons for learning Polish?
Learning Polish for an online friend. Silly, I kno.
Polish is an interesting language, it uses a latin script but has its own diacritics signs not like other Slavic languages. If you learn Polish you'll be able to understand a bit of other Slavic languages and recognize some words. It is a difficult language to learn but when you'll be fluent at speaking it you will be proud of yourself, impress people, and gain more confidence. Poland is a beautiful country and has nice places to visit.
Interesting, beautiful language, friends, and upcoming travel. ( Your reason for learning Polish is a valid reason. Who knows, maybe you will use this language skill in travel, work or school someday : ) ps. I'm sorry someone downvoted your discussion. Maybe it was an error on their part.
