Polish language : vocabulary, alphabet, dictionary, courses and languages spoken by the Poles


Polish is an Indo-European language belonging to the group of the Western Slavic languages. It is strongly related to the Czech and the Slovak language, so that people from these three countries can understand themselves without the help of an interpreter.

Polish is one of the most difficult languages to learn. Marked by the repetition of the "hushing" sounds, the Polish pronunciation is also characteristic by its stressing (accentuation) on before-last syllable and by its nasal vowels, absent in the other Slavic languages.

This page try to explain the Polish language. Because of the complexity of it's grammar, this cannot cover all details. But nevertheless it should allow you to survive in any part of Poland.
