    Why?

    Why nobody wants to learn Polish? It's not so difficult... I know that Polish isn't a international language but when u learned it u can be proud that u know the language which not many people know

    Don't want to make separate topic on this small question and decided to post it here. I often watch Viva-TV (it is a Polish music channel). And I always notice this word which, don't know how is spelled, but sounds like «zaproshaye». Do you aggie know what it means?

    Yeah, maye u'r right. Separate topic is too much for that question.

    Hmm..maybe u mean "zaproszenie" and if it is, it means "invitation"

    Probably it is. It fits to context because I usually hear it when they advertise various disco parties.

    I would like to learn Polish, but I must finish learning Russian first. However, I do not think I would ever use Polish much if I DID learn it. So... why should I learn it? Hmmm... I dunno. Time to go ..... byes.
    I do not understand very well the best way of understanding ..

    I am going to have to work on fixing up my Polish. There is really no excuse for my Polish being as poor as it is.

    I studied Polish for some time when I was a teen.
    I have a good course with audio records. It was fun.

    I dropped it because I the Army decided that my service was absolutely necessary for its welfare, and the Army can't be reasoned with. It is an absolutely unreasonable institution. So when I was drafted, I gave the book and records to a girl who had wanted to study Polish.

    After the army, I tried to get back to learning it, bought a textbook and a dictionary, but I found out that I didn't have enough time to for it. I was busy improving my English, studying French, and, of course, earning my living.

    So, with some regret, I dropped it after all

    Aww. Hope that doesn't happen to me I thought that if you're in university and go to "voennaya kafedra" you dont have to serve in the Army. Right?

    Almost right. You can still be drafted after "voynnaya kafedra", but this rarely happens, and you serve as an officer. However, that was not my case, for I never went to a university.

    And I like to be different than others For example in Poland not many people want to learn Russian (because of not far history) and I want to learn it
    I also would like to learn Irish. I know that this language isn't useful nowadays, but a knowladge of it would make me speciall

    I'm putting off polishing my Polish (hee) until after my Russian knowledge is more securely sunk into my brain. When I work on learning more than one language at the same time they tend to interfere with one another.

    Polish is pretty.

    You don't advertise Disco-parties in the States, Pravit? We do, but we call them differently. Shouldn't you learn Dutch as well then?
