Polish is a West-Slav language. It has had separated from lechick group of languages. It’s spoken mainly in Poland, because it’s considered as one of the hardest languages to learn.

In Poland it’s like every region has its own dialect. In our country we distinguish following dialects : wielkopolski, ma³opolski , œl¹ski , mazowiecki , kujawsko – che³mski , kaszubski.

For foreigners the hardest thing in our language is conjugation, orthography and pronunciation. To make them practice they are given famous Polish poem written by Jan Brzechwa called “Chrz¹szcz” which means “beetle” and it goes something like this:


“W Szczebrzeszynie chrz¹szcz brzmi w trzcinie
I Szczebrzeszyn z tego s³ynie

Wó³ go pyta: „Panie chrz¹szczu,
Po co pan tak brzêczy w g¹szczu...”
Ja sobie swietnie z tym jezykiem radze. Byc moze gorzej jest z jezykiem, ktory obsluguje ta strone, ale nawet ludzie, ktorzy uzywaja go jako jezyka "ojczystego", czesto radza sobie gorzej niz ja. O czym to swiadczy? Odpowiedz na wczesniejsze definicje: "Przyganial kociol garnkowi".

An enthnicity or language originated in the east european country of Poland. A country unfairly invaded by Hitler and Stalin from two fronts during WW2. Often seen as a place of large jewish population, although the vast majority of Polish are of Roman Catholic decent.
Paul: I'm from Poland.
Joe: Are you jewish?
Paul: No, and I'm not retarded either! But someone who bases their information off of stereotypes is.

An often very misunderstood, despised, hated & underappreciated people in Eastern Europe.

Psychological studies have proven that the Polish people aren't actually rude or arrogant people at all; and their behavior (or accusation of being rude or arrogant) is simply a major misunderstanding. Polish people just have a different way of interaction & social skills.

If a Polish person likes you & is trying to be helpful, they will often be blunt with you & to-the-point. To westerners this may seem as rude, arrogant or sarcastic. For Polish people this is a sign of friendliness. Polish people tend to be very common-sense oriented people; they tend to be sheltered/isolated and are religious. So if a Polish person upsets you; don't worry, s/he is usually not trying to insult you or hurt your feelings; and this is mostly an unintentional behavior. (unbeknownst to Polish) In the Poland; what is seen as rude behavior in the Western world is actually seen differently in Poland & is actually viewed as a friendly gesture/mannerisms among the Polish.

Polish people, unlike Westerners, tend to value collectivism and the greater good, much like Eastern societies - Korea/Japan/China. While Westerners tend to be more individualistic. So if you are from Western Europe or even USA, don't be surprised or find it bizarre that a Polish person is acting different from you. To them, this behavior is normal & they don't realize it is unusual behavior & isn't understood in most Western nations.
Polish people will often view you as an outsider. But don't worry: The reason for this is because they were brought up in a strictly isolated Catholic country; and therefore they are very "clannish" people. They are a lot more savage and uncivilized; and more devoted to helping and working people; especially their own Polish people. Polish people do not like people who get in their way and view themselves as hard-working and important. They do not like small-talk or gossip. They avoid these things and other unnecessary interaction; often considering it to be a waste of their time.

Poles are a very family-oriented people and very nationalistic and for the greater-good; and individualism in Poland is seen as "laziness/selfishness/slacking off"; and a betrayal of important responsibilities and duties; and is therefore frowned upon by Poland. Individualism and Liberalism are not as celebrated in Poland as it is in the Western nations (i.e. such as England, France, USA) where it is seen as the norm. Polish people are not racist people but tend to be very suspicious of other people, which is why they have a high restriction on immigration. Likewise, this is why it often seems that Poles are prejudiced and also act and follow each other as a group and see themselves as very important people.

The Polish are very hard workers from a great country. Most Polish people came to America from Poland in the early Eighteenth Century. Some also went to Canada and England. Those who came to the United States worked mostly in Shops. Those in Canada and England mostly took Jobs by Being General Contractors. Perhaps some in Manchester made their living by Coal Mining. Those in Northwestern Alberta may have sometimes been Scientists or Medicine workers. After all many Nobel Science winners were Polish.

My grandfather came from Poland. He came to Connecticut from Poland then went to Massachusetts. My Polish Heritage is very important to my mothers family. My mothers father the one from Poland wanted my mother to go to a Polish School. She learned how to Teach in Collage while also taught Scientific Medicine Work in New York. She came back to Massachusetts Six Years later. But as I was saying I feel proud of being Polish.

I'm sure you're proud to be Patriotic too of your Country.
Although the Polish have suffered after the many Years of Polish rights from Rule of the Communists of Russia we are proud people from a free Poland.
