English is now obligatory from the age of 6, throughout the elementary and secondary education, and there are optional classes in many preschools too. In secondary schools (both gimnazjum and liceum) it's two languages - English plus another one, most often it's German, French or Spanish. Russian is not so popular nowadays although some schools still have it. So it's English from the age of 6 and then English + another language from the age of 12.
Some elementary schools have another language classes, besides the compulsory English, but it's optional and depends on the school.
Anybody know or can point to a link showing the No. or % of Polish schools offering English, German, French, Russian and other (Italian, Spanish, Swedish?) foreign languages to pupils?
this one is from 2005, and here you have 2010:
