Learning Polish is not different from learning other foreign languages. To be successful you need to dedicate some time, preferably every day, to study and gradually improve reading, listening, writing and speaking.
Polish is a difficult language, so do not be discouraged if you cannot speak after a few weeks. Try to learn Polish every day, find a language partner, engage in conversation, and you will see the results.
We think that it is a good idea to avoid complex Polish grammar at the beginning. Instead, focus on learning many useful phrases and build core vocabulary.
Because Polish is a phonetic language, learning how to pronounce letters is also very beneficial. It will help you with remembering vocabulary, speaking and pronunciation.
Motivation is very important when it comes to learning languages, so you need to have a good reason to learn Polish. Many people try to master the language because they have links to Poland and Polish family. But there are other very good reason too.
Poland has got rich culture and history. Once you know the language you will be able to access great Polish books and films in original.
Polish is one of the main Slavic language and once you learned it, it will be easier to learn Russian, Czech, Slovak, Croatian, Bulgarian and other languages.
Poland makes a great tourist destination. It has magnificent cities (Kraków, Wrocław, Gdańsk) with interesting architecture, picturesque landscapes and many tourist attractions.
Last but not least, the Poles are very hospitable, Polish cuisine is delicious and the prices in the country are very affordable.
All of these are great reasons to learn Polish, and we are very happy to help you with this ambitious task.
It is a difficult question because the answer depends on many factors. Our native language plays a major role as well as our experience in language learning, how much time do we dedicate to learning Polish, what methods do we use, etc. An experienced language learner from the Czech Republic who moved to Poland and studies Polish 3 hours a day, will certainly learn Polish faster than an inexperienced learner from China, who can dedicate only 15 minutes a day.
However, if you are from an English-speaking country, we can give you a rough estimate.
Foreign Service Institute created a table showing difficulty of foreign languages for English-speaking learners. Polish language is category 4, fairly difficult languages to learn. It is estimated that it requires around 1100 hours of study to reach General Professional Proficiency level.
