I don't think it's inherently beautiful. I don't love it. But I'd still like to be able to string a few more words together properly. It depends on who is speaking it, what they are saying and how well they have mastered the language. That means I love my own language more than perhaps I should.

I agree with Osioł. Russian sounds nicer to me. English is far more melodic and nicer on the ear, IMHO.

I don't wish I was Polish but I do love the language (and wish I were significantly better at it in some areas).

One problem is that _really_ advanced courses for non-natives essentially don't exist.

Upierdliwy means nagging isthatu2. Do u like drinking Pan Tadeusz isthatu2? It's a super vodka

And there's a difference between being fluent in most ways (and wanting to be even more fluent) and being ignorant and helpless. I've seen a few foreigners who didn't even try to learn Polish and that's a choice that doesn't lead anywhere good.

Upierdliwy isn't so bad isthatu2. Pierdoły is OK 2, even though it has the stem pierdolić. Ja pierdole starts to move in the direction of vulgar but it's not that hard either.

actually it was 100% vulgar and started moving in the direction of non-vulgar only in the recent years because of some youth slang, but I wouldn't use it in most circumstances anyway :)

Upierdliwy, hmm...I'm trying to place that insult :)

Ja pierniczy, or sth like that, appears milder

nagging, annoying, trying.
This is not a vulgar expression, but certainly not polite either.

Ja pierniczy, or sth like that, appears milder

Ja pierniczę.

I'd say this is pretty much as mild as "upierdliwy". The meaning (as posted) is different though.

I stared understand it more when in HS we were reading "Pan Tadeusz" and others....lots of poetry... then, i started to see it in a different light... but, it's my language....my county's history, my heritage, my culture... it's in my blood... so, yes, I love it, because i understand it...

I hear that :) I'm taking private lessons and it's definitely a complicated language. Fun, but very challenging.

I dont get it when people say it sounds sexy ect...after listening to it when Ive been there I always think that a fight is going to break out...Polish people sound really angry when they speak...LOL...no offence guys..

I half hearted tried to learn, picked on some stuff but I have no real reason to bother to learn so gave up...

Cheeky monkey, I gave a shot, I even mastered rolling my r's and doing that (like ya gonna cough up flem) harsh sound..

Hmmm German isn't that bad...try listening to a couple of africans jabber on...now thats bad!

You can beat listening to French...hmmmm even ugly French blokes can get laid with an accent like that ROLF :)

Advanced courses do exist, but only if you go to Poland itself (from experience) There is an excellent school in Sopot that teaches Polish as a foriegn language to English speaking people.(its expensive but well worth it)

Compared with Russian, Polish sounds rather excitable, almost feverishly upbeat in comparison with that of a viscous, slow-moving river which Russian often resembles, whereby every syllable seems drawn out for ultimate weight of meaning.

I was recently watching Eisenstein's 'Alexander Nevsky' with the late great Nikolai Tscherkassov as Nevsky. He was practically declaming each line of each phrase for rhetorical emphasis.

Polish actors appear to do this far less.

I find Polish especially beautiful however!

As if there is a language called African and it sounds really horrible.

If I knew the Polish for 'Get a life', would I start to love the language?

Even though I don't love the Polish language, I obviously like it enough to want to learn it.
French sounds nice when spoken by a lady, but for me: no thanks.
German sounds nicer than the usual stereotypical view of it, but I really don't like the sound of Poles, Slovaks and Lithuanians trying to speak German.

Now I do like Portuguese.

I love the language not only because I'm fluent and its my history but because it just sounds different from other languages. It's hard to learn from what I hear because of all the pronounciations and spellings but it's well worth it to learn.

I was learning German at one point..now that's just a harsh language ha ha.

I don't love the language. Too many sz cz rz etc...
It's not as ugly sounding as German but still pretty bad.

English is far more melodic and nicer on the ear

I always hear people saying that English is an ugly language because it doesn't adhere to rules as much as languages such as Italian and French where most verbs end in the same letters.

Now I do like Portuguese.

I HATE the sound of Portuguese! A few of my closest friends are Porkchops and when I hear them speak it sounds to me like lazy Spanish (words sound slurred). Plus, my friends mother is this big, fat, evil woman that would refuse to speak to anyone that came over in English because she wanted us to think that she didn't understand but then we'd always find her at the door of my friend's room eavesdropping on our conversations.
