Why is Polish easy?

8 Sep

You might have heard that the Polish language is one of the most difficult languages to learn.  That’s a bit unfair and these people couldn’t be more wrong. polish flag

Here is why:

1. There are only three tenses in Polish: past, present and future (and two aspects – perfective and imperfective). Some of you might not be aware that there are… 16 tenses in English (just to name a few: Present simple, Present continuous, Present perfect, Present perfect continuous, Future perfect continuous, Past simple, Past continuous etc.). Complicated, isn’t it?

2. Once you have learnt the alphabet, that’s it, you’ve got it – you know how to pronounce almost every word in Polish as the Polish alphabet is phonetic.

3. You will find a lot of words in Polish that you recognise in your own language because some words have Latin roots, a few examples are komputer, idiota, radio, motywacja, kalkulator and… many more!

4. There are plenty of opportunities for you to experience Polish if you are living in the North East of England. The internet is full of Polish TV programmes, news, etc. as well as free lessons, applications and other learning tools. There are local organisations that arrange Polish events, trips, and other sessions. Just keep your eyes open.
