Thanks for your comments, they're quite helpful.
So far, I decided to keep learning Polish even though it'd take me a long time to become fluent.
About my mum ...:( I'll try my best on my exams to get her trust.
I hope to be able to speak Polish well someday. It'd be fantastic!
It won't help you at all considering you live in Los Angeles. You're much better off learning Spanish.
yep...Spanish is very common in LA, that's why I'm learning it.
So you can read Poland's superb literature and poetry in the original.
Mandarin, Spanish, Arabic to name a few.
Mandarin: my mom's mom is Vietnamese-Chinese, I can speak some (but can't handle all of Chinese characters)
Arabic: I'm nearsighted!
Any foreign language will help with the first two but the last is subjective and needs no outside justification.
exactly! thanks for this
btw you can always get back to Polish when you are self-reliant
dont waste your time! learn turkish :))))
I did! I have some Turkish friends. I also enjoy Turkish cuisine...but I haven't touched it for a long time.
Its a total waste of time, unless you want to try to hook up with a Polish cleaning lady, or if you want to communicate with the Polish construction worker fixing your house, but you're better off just talking to the boss, which most likely will be an American.
in this case...my family doctor ^___^
Fairly silly thread, I think.
yeep...somehow I feel like I shounda shut up and just play with some new Polish vocabulary.
This is what interpreters are paid for (and damned well, I might add. I ought to know, I am one)::-))
How old are you, are you going to let your mother run your life?
I'm seventeen . of course I can do my own stuffs but I cant work for now, I really don't have time. I have to deal with SAT 2 stuffs plus Spanish and Japanese lessons
Tell her that you are learning Polish so that when you come to Poland to spend a year working to help Poland, you will understand the people where you are. That is the best reason to learn it.
Good idea! I started thinking about being a travel nurse.
The only one I can think of is maybe it will help you in meeting a Polish guy.
I met some...they almost speak English :(
if you like it keep at it. i have been learning for about 2 years. no way am i fluent, and i dont need to learn it, but i am too stubborn to give up now. so what if you might never need to use the language, its still a string to your bow. try and mx with polish people if you can(this is how i learned) good luck!!
You learn it because you want to, that's what matters.
yes, you're bloody right...I also found the same thing with Chinese, Japanese and Vietnamese. they're quite relative.
I used to think Polish was a pretty useless language when I was in my early teens, and I even stopped speaking it for a while.
woew...that's great! I can speak a little Cantonese cuz some of my distant relatives speak it.
You should not learn Polish you need to learn Mandarin so you know the language of your enemy in case you need to interrogate them someday, the same reason I know Russian and English.
haha...one of my friends learnt German just with the same reason
