Reasons for learning Polish language?
Hello everyone! I just wondered: why did you start learning polish? just for fun? do you know some polish people? My girlfriend is Polish and I decided to start learning to communicate with her family. What about you? Any interesting stories?:)

My grandfather comes from Poland so I thought it would be nice to know the language of my ancestors. My mom was born in the US and she learnt some Polish from her father but she was never fluent, so she didn’t taught me. I think Polish is great so I will definitely try to encourage my kids some day to learn it 

I started to learn when I met some Polish friends in Dublin. They were great company and I thought that their language sounded great. They taught me a few phrases, it was fun, so I took a course in the summer and then tried to practice with my friends. The language is insanely difficult but it’s great to know it!

I’m a teacher of English, my friend came to work to Poland a few years ago and was overwhelmed with work as a native speaker of English. I decided to give it a try too. I’ve been living here for 2 years now, but Polish is still a mystery to me:/ This language is so difficult! I tried to pick it up from Polish friends and neighbours. I’m thinking about taking a course… Do you know any schools in Krakow you could recommend?

I took a course in Glossa and I was fully satisfied with their quality – very good and dynamic teachers and very small groups. The only disadvantage was a price.

My wife is Polish. W travel to Poland roughly once a year to visit her family. Polish is such a difficult language! I do understand more of it now but saying anything is another story :)

I have a friend from Poland (Cracow), and she always tells me some interesting stuff about Poles and Poland. I wanted to visit her, but I also decided to learn basics in Polish. I participated in Polish course in school Glossa, just like jk.andrew who answered above to your post. I don't think it was that expensive, concerning great materials (books), proffesional teachers and lots of entertainment after classes.

I've started to learn Polish about 3 years ago because I wanted to know the language which my grandparents spoke. I also met a lot of Poles at my uni and they persuaded me to come to Poland and learn Polish. Before that, I took couple lessons via skype, private lessons, even one of my friends was teaching me for a while, but the most effective was my visit to Poland and participation in the Polish course.

I'm Italian and I've been working in Poland for 3 years. I think it is natural to learn the language of the country you stay in. As an expat I needed to feel more connection with other people. I met other expats and they told me about a great Polish school they attend. It's called Prolog, this is their website: www.polishcourses.com. It was a good choice. Lecturers are so kind, it just makes going to the classes a real pleasure. After 2 years of studying Polish I got a better job. This school gave me the confidence to speak Polish really well.

Frankly I was about to move to Poland, for I have some portion of Polish blood in my veins and life in Ukraine is very hard now. And I started learning Polish which is rather difficult I should say.
But the country is very volatile now, which is no wonder actually with such a man at the wheel. http://homment.com/n6k3XEVKWz I mean that guy, Jaroslaw Kaczynsky who's far from being mentally sane sanctioning such totally undemocratic doings of his ruling party now.
Now, I doubt if I should spend money and time to go on with that learning of Polish.

My maternal and paternal grandparents were Polish. My mother's parents did not encourage the language but she did understand Polish. My dad's parents as well as my dad and his sister spoke Polish and English fluently. I was taught some Polish as a young child and can say my prayers in Polish. My father-in-law was Polish but insisted the language was too difficult and never spoke it to either his family or to mine. Last year my husband's long lost cousins found us on Facebook and we are going to Poland for a family reunion. I thought it would be a good idea to learn more Polish for our trip to see how much I can remember. I also want to keep my aging brain active and prevent some dementia by learning a new language. Polish is challenging and certainly giving me a good exercise!

A lot of Polish people have come to Ireland in the last 10-15 years and like many Irish people my first visit to Poland was for a relative's wedding. I learnt a little Polish before we went. Now it is a hobby. I like learning the grammar but have a lot of trouble understanding spoken Polish

I am Romanian, I live and work in Germany. I discovered the Polish community when I attended the roman-catholic Liturgy, I felt simply they have faith and they live the faith, So I decided to learn Polish. I found a teacher and now I can communicate in Polish (about A1-A2), full of grammar errors, but still unterstandable. I was in Poland and I was already in some situations where I could speak only Polish and it worked. Yes, Polish is a difficult language, but I'm not afraid to learn it.

I am at present studying at Viadrina university as an exchange student. As you know this town is located at the Polish border and the university offer courses of polish language. Not only did I decide to register to this course out of curiosity, but also to take part in a seminary about the history of Poland. Gradually what was a mere curiosity, has become a deep interest, a now a real passion. Here in Viadrina, everything is done so that you could find out Polen and to make you enthousiasm grow.
The good reason for learning this language :
1) to visit this country, which is really worth visiting and get to know Polish people and strike up friendship (it is easier to meet people, when you speak the national language. Moreover the Poles are always impressed when they meet foreigners who learn polish.... They are quite ready to encourage you.
2)to fight against prejudice (the polish language is not so difficult as it is said. This language is really musical (it is a pleasure to find out the polish music and particulary Marek Grechuta's singing poetry
Moreover the grammar is not so dreadful when you are like me a native French speaker.
3) Poland is in the number of inhabitants - the third biggest country in the European Union.
4) The link between Poland and France were very narrow through the history (Napoleon is mentioned in the polish national anthem, the Prince of Polish poets, Adam Mickiewicz held a chair at the College de France, etc....!!!!)
- The history of its capital is unique and very impressing, the reconstruction of Warshaw is shown as example and the old town which was completely rebuilt is inscribed in the UNESCO-legacy of the humanity.
- to get rid of all the prejudice about the Poles

I have visited Poland 3 times and have felt most inadequate being unable to converse with Poles in their language. I want to revisit the country in 2019 and want to be better equipped beyond saying Good day and thank you

I learn polish because I live in Germany and I am catholic. By the polish parish I found the real faith. Sorry, I am here to learn polish, not english.
Ja mam prosbę dla moderatora: szukam inne temat po polsku, już mi jest nudny wyjaśniać jeszcze raz po angielsku, dlaczego uczę się polskiego itd.
Kiedy rejestrowałem w ten forum, wyobrażałem sobie że uczę się polskiego też po ten sposób. Jestem tutaj żeby piszę tylko po polsku.
Od ten forum zarabiem kiedy piszę tylko po polsku. Mi nie pomaga pisać po angielsku, oczywiście, niestety mój poziom jeszcze mi nie wystarcze żeby rozmawiam jak zaawansowane. Jestem tylko początkujący. Gramatyk nie jest mója najsilniejsza krópka.
Nie mogę chodzić do kurs w Polsce sam w ciągu urlopu, bo mam też rodzinę, moja żona i moja córka nie mówią po polsku. Kupiłęm już cała serie Polski Krok po Kroku. Ja uczę się polskiego pravie sam, tylko kiedy mam czas.

My father was Polish, separated from his family by war and I have now managed to reconnect with some. I need to learn Polish to be able to communicate with them. I also want to be able to share some basic language with my grandchild so he can know his cultural background.

Hi everyone, I am Olivia , I am from China. My boyfriend is from Poland, we communicate in Italian , and I find it very diffcult to communicate with his family who don't speak either English nor Italian. I find it important for me to learn Polish if I settle down in Poland in the future.

Honestly I decided to learn it very spontaneously. One day I've realized that I don't wanna study in my country(Belarus, if you dk, it is nearby Poland:)). And the best way to move out or just to get out of my comfort zone I found was Poland, and of course polish. And now I've been learning this superb language, for a couple of months, because im in graduating class at school ,that's why ive got only a year to make my communicative skills better and my vocabulary wealthy

Doskonały kurs do nauki języka polskiego. Jestem zaskoczony tak dużym bogactwem dostępnych ćwiczeń do każdego z poruszanych w kursie tematów. Dzięki temu nawet trudne tematy stają się jasne i moje umiejętności rozumienia i używania polskiego są na coraz wyższym poziomie.
