The weird thing about Polish is that even though it is a relatively known Slavic language, some people still ask me what it is! Therefore it is really hard to find language buddies for Polish! Anyone else have this problem with a different language?
I live in Poland from US and find speaking daily in the language is the best way to put into practice what i have been learning. Since starting Duolingo my Polish has way improved:) I like having fun learning languages and this is more fun than sitting with grammar books and lessons.
Luckily for me, my wife is half polish, with polish as her native tounge, which is to great help for me. Since the start of this week, we only speak polish when we are at home, which is both hard and demanding, but at the same time really fun. My goal is that the next time we visit Poland (which probably will be during the next summer) then I shall be fluent enough that I can get around only using polish.
Sorry for the late reply but that is awesome! Good luck and I hope you two have fun :)
Well, Polish people are also not very widespread in Australia. It would be way easier to learn Polish in the UK, Paris or in Germany.
I live in England since 4 years, and I’ve met only two German speakers who I can talk to, for all this time! I think it depends on where you live in.
Yes- I live in Poland, I'm polish but I don't have buddies to speak any other language (I need spanish and german). Even English is not so easy... :) But I think after 9-th class is difficult to say anything practice in polish (pr other language). In hebrew I wouldn't understand anything but My name is :D
Żyję w Anglii od 4 lat i powiem Tobie tak, że poziom skomplikowania angielskiego jest prawie zerowy, w porównaniu do języka polskiego. ;) Właściwie brak przypadków, a my mamy 7. :D Niezmiernie trudny niemiecki ma całe 4 przypadki. ;)
I really don't mean to be rude. But how can you confidently call English easy compared to Polish when you have lived in England for 4 years and can't write a line of English without a grammatical mistake. Again, I don't mean to be rude, just to point out this fact.
There is an app called Hellotalk, I don't know if it is available world-wide though ;)
I'm an Australian learning Polish because I have Polish ancestry.
Can't imagine why else anyone would want to learn the language.
I'm the exact same! Except I find Polish quite beautiful in its own way, I think all languages are (in their own ways)
I live here and avoided learning Polish for years, but now i feel great learning it finally, more than just shopping for groceries or clothes. It is a great language, very rich and complex. Its a challenge, but i'm learning by 'osmosis!' Practicing.
