The Polish Language
Polish Studies at SSEES | Poland
Polish (język polski) belongs to the group of Western Slavonic
languages. Its grammar is based on Slavonic structures, however its
vocabulary draws heavily on German and Italian and, more recently, on
English. It uses the Latin alphabet. It is the official language of the
Republic of Poland and has about 44 million speakers in Poland and
around the world.
SSEES students learning the language don't have far to go to immerse themselves in
Polish language and culture. Located in the heart of London, the School
offers easy access to many places that are related to Poland: bookshops,
cafés and restaurants, theatres and cinemas. The Polish community in
London is very active and supportive of anyone contributing to Polish
studies, and there is outside funding available for students' academic
work or for going to Poland to attend summer language courses.
