    The Polish language

     

    Polish belongs to the West-Slavic group of the Indo-European family of languages. Due to its structure, it is classified as an inflected and synthetic system.

    As an individual language, Polish evolved in the 10th century and played an important role in the establishment and development of the Polish state. Until the 14th century, Polish existed only in the form of several regional spoken variations.

    As a literary, superregional language, Polish was distinguished in the 15th and 16th centuries, which is demonstrated by the extensive collection of Renaissance literary works written in the language.

    The number of people speaking Polish as their mother tongue exceeds 45 million, of which 38 million live in Poland. Large groups of Poles and ethnic Poles have been living outside Poland for many generations, mainly in the USA, Canada, Australia, Germany, UK, France, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Lithuania and Ukraine.

    Today, Polish is gaining popularity as a foreign language taught at language schools and in academic centres across Poland and worldwide.
