About the Polish language

Polish is the official language of Poland and belongs to the Lethitic subgroup that's within the West Slavonic group of languages. There are about 40 million speakers of Polish in Poland, Lithuania, and Belarus—and large communities of speakers in the United Kingdom, United States, Canada, Ireland, and Brazil.

Polish grammar and pronunciation

Polish uses Latin script with the addition of nine letters: (ą, ć, ę, ł, ń, ó, ś, ź, ż). Grammatically it has a relatively free word-order format with the dominant word arrangement of subject-verb-object, like many other languages, including French, German, and English. It can be one of the more difficult languages for English speakers to take on, given its complex gender system, added symbols, and tongue-twisting pronunciation. (Don't worry! We'll help you with Rosetta Stone's proprietary speech-recognition technology.)

Polish language history and culture

The official language of Poland, standard Polish has become considerably more widespread throughout the country than it was before World War II. The people of Poland adopted Latin Catholicism in 966, and with their new religion came Latin, one of the many languages that have had an influence on the Polish language. Since the fall of Communism, Polish has borrowed heavily from English and now, in the information age, new terms in European languages, including English, are becoming commonplace in sports, the arts, and technology.

Fun facts about the Polish language

There are some tasty and surprising Polish words that are familiar to English speakers, including gherkin, kilbasa, and schmuck, which is often mistakenly thought to be of Yiddish origin.
