Poland has a population of about 40 million, but with increasingly wide-ranging Polish communities throughout Europe and around the world, Polish is fast becoming an important and useful international language. It is also the second most-spoken Slavic language, after Russian.

Polish is a complex and challenging language, which makes learning its basics all the more worthwhile.
