Polish is a language of the Lechitic subgroup of West Slavic languages, and is the native language of Poland. It is also the second most widely spoken Slavic language, after Russian.

Polish has a similar word order to English, i.e. subject-verb-object and nouns belong to one of three genders; masculine, feminine or neuter. The Polish alphabet is Latin, with several additional letters formed using diacritics – marks above or below the letter which change its pronunciation. Indeed, the Polish Language Council has spearheaded a campaign to preserve the challenging system of its diacritical marks, saying the tails, dots and strokes are becoming obsolete under the pressure of IT and speed but are a necessity.

There is a strong history of migration from Poland with significant Polish minorities in the USA, United States, Germany, Ukraine, Russia, Belarus, Lithuania, France, the UK, Sweden and Ireland as well as Brazil, Canada, Australia and Argentina. According to the 2011 census, there are over half a million native speakers of Polish in England and Wales.

Poland’s economy is considered to be one of the healthiest of the post-Communist countries and is currently one of the fastest growing in the EU. Thanks to its strong domestic market, low private debt, flexible currency (Poland is not a member of the Eurozone) and not being dependant on a single export sector, Poland is the only European economy to have avoided the global financial crisis of the 21st Century.
