Finding out more about Polish

There are an estimated 44 million speakers of Polish. As we have already seen, a substantial Polish community lives in Britain. Many other Polish speakers live in central Europe and in Eastern European countries. So, learning a bit more Polish would give you a very transportable language!

Poland itself will become part of the European Union in May 2004, so our links with some of those Polish speakers will be growing stronger all the time.
