Siema. Polish language boom.

Classes teaching Polish have become increasingly popular

;)

Why aren't there more English schools teaching Polish over French! Surely more use nowadays.

Hmm. Since the average performance of school kids in modern languages is less than brilliant the introduction of the fiendishly difficult Polish langauge may not be seen as a positive move by the publishers of schools performance tables.

"Look mam, I've got an A* in Polish"

"That's great little Jonny, Say something to me in Polish"

"Piwo"

"And waht does that mean Jonny?"

"Beer, mam"

"Very good son. Say something else."

"Er, that's all I know mam"

Still, I'd rather know the word for beer in Polish rather than French any day! at least I know plenty of Poles that are actually in the UK, I mean, when was the last time you saw a French person!

(Waits for one-upmanship examples missing the point! ;D)

"Piwo"

2nd year of studying Polish they will learn a whole sentence, polskie piwo jest naprawdę świetne.
Then they are ready to go on a school trip to Poland. Cheers mum!

i didnt learn the swearing first i learnt the basics and how to be polite first but each to their own i guess i never thought it was polite to say pierdole sie ... kurva .. gowna ... jebanym .. etc etc etc ..

but i guess each learner is different :)
