In terms of the number of speakers, Polish is the second largest Slavic language after Russian and is spoken by over 40 million people both in Poland and the wider Polish diaspora! Developed from the dialects spoken in Western Poland, Polish has, throughout history, been influenced greatly by other languages and cultures that it has come into contact with. However, when a foreign word is adopted in Polish, it is often changed somewhat to sound more ‘Polish’ and this gives the language a wonderful richness!
You can choose to learn Polish in Warsaw! Warsaw, known as the ‘Phoenix City’ thanks to having survived several wars, is brimming with historical architecture. As the Polish capital, there is plenty to see and do in charismatic Warsaw!
Learn Polish whilst immersing yourself completely in both the language and the culture in Warsaw, where we offer one-to-one tuition in your teacher’s home.
Our recommendation would be that you stay with a Polish host family, who will encourage you to practice speaking Polish with them as much as possible.
