The Polish Langauge
The official language of Poland is Polish and at first it will sound quite different to what you might be used to hearing in the western parts of Europe as it’s part of the Slavic family of languages. You’ve got no chance of mastering it in one weekend but you can definitely win yourself some respect with the locals by learning a few vital phrases.
Check out some of the essentials below and if you’re feeling really brave then try saying the following popular Polish tongue twister: “W Szczebrzeszynie chrzaszcz brzmi w trzcinie”. It means “In [the town of] Szczebrzeszyn a beetle buzzes in the reeds”. Yep, try saying that after a few glasses of bubbly!
