MONTHS
I've started learn polish, it's complicated but I like it :) but there is one thing very interesting - names of months. Not every but a few names is almost the same in different languages but polish has his own names. Do you know why? For example september (spanish - septiembre) in polish is sierpien.

Hello :)
If it is interesting for you...
STYCZEŃ is from "stykać". It means... connect, meet.... It is the time when Old Year and the New one meet, connect, that's why January is styczeń :)
LUTY - many many many years ago this word had a meaning - 'very bad, freezing, cruel'. And it's true (now you can see that) - this month is really really cold in Poland, so "luty" is February.
MARZEC - it is from latin language. In ancient Rome, March was a month of god of war (Mars) and planet Mars who was shining the most at that time.
KWIECIEŃ - because of kwiat, kwiaty - flowers :) It's really beautiful, colourful and warm month.
MAJ - because of Maja, godness from Rome. Month of love, full of happiness etc.
CZERWIEC - there is a small insect called "czerwiec' who was used to get red pigment.
LIPIEC - it's because of 'lipa' (a kind of tree) which is blooming in July :)
SIERPIEŃ - "sierp" means "sickle". Years ago we were using it to cut grain, cereal.
WRZESIEŃ - it's because of violet flowers called "wrzosy".
PAŹDZIERNIK - "paździerz" - years ago it was a linen straw to make a clothes.
LISTOPAD - 'liść'+'opadać'= falling leaves.
GRUDZIEŃ - "gruda" it was freezing earth. Years ago ;)

Best,
Joanna :)

I like an explanation of Joanna_Polish_Centre. It is really interesting. I didn't know before what exactly means the name of every months.

Jestem zaskoczony możliwościami, jakie daje ten kurs. Uczyłem się przy pomocy programów komputerowych angielskiego, niemieckiego i hiszpańskiego i nie spodziewałbym się, iż powstanie program do nauki języka polskiego w wielu kwestiach przewyższający tamte programy. Choć uczę się dopiero od miesiąca jestem pewny, że wkrótce będę mówił po polsku!
