Well, it's less useful noimmi. Things can change, Poland has been in the EU for almost 5 years now. The Poles are moving in many directions, that's what the Germans and French did before them. Spreading the net leads to a spreading in influence.

You are right, other languages are more used at the moment but change comes in many forms.

It's mindblowingly easy as well, I had a look at the past papers and I reckon I could blag a pass in it :/

Yeah, but what happens when many more Poles return home? It's good in a way that we recognise Polish through a formal qualification.

Glasgow University actually do a degree in Polish (only uni in the land, I believe) YES, I know it's in Scotland. You can also do year courses etc.
