Polish as a foreign language
Polish language belongs to the Western-Slavic branch of languages, that constitute a part of the Indo-European family.
The oldest sentence written in Polish dates as far back as 1270 and was found in Wrocław on the 24th page of Book of Henryków. At a convention in Łęczyca in 1285 Polish language was allowed to be used in cathedral and monastic schools. Three prayers published in 1475 in Wrocław are considered to be the oldest printed texts in Polish. Currently, Polish is estimated to be the mother tongue of about 44 million people all over the world both living in Poland and outside its borders, making the Polish diaspora.
More and more people all over the world are learning Polish as a foreign language, although it is regarded to be one of the most complex and difficult languages to master by non-native speakers. Number of people trying to reach proficiency in Polish is estimated at about 10 000.
