About Polish

Polish may sometimes be perceived as a somewhat obscure language but it is the native language of Nicholas Copernicus, Joseph Conrad, Maria Curie and Fredric Chopin, and the adopted language of the eminent historian Professor Norman Davies and the famous violinist Nigel Kennedy. It may sound rather surprising but Polish and English have actually got quite a lot in common – both languages belong to the same broad family of Indo-European languages, both have been heavily influenced by Latin and Greek, and Polish has adopted a lot of English vocabulary.
