POLISH - World's Most Difficult Language | ft. Arlena Witt & Mówiąc Inaczej [Kult America]

9649 ratings | 325320 views
This is a video that I've been wishing to make for a long time, the personal story of my confrontation with Polish grammar. Polish is one of the hardest languages in the world and In my opinion its not a question of the difficult sounds but the grammar which governs the language itself.

I've realised lately how lucky it was for me to have individual english lessons at home. While playing with people from whole eastern europe i'm the only one from my polish peers who opens their mouth to communicate freely.

Polish grammar is complicated but it's a pretty standard Slavonic language no easier or harder than Russian, Czech etc. The good news is that once you've mastered one Slavonic language the next is not so hard because the hard things like the cases and the aspect system exist in pretty much all of them - OK, not so much Bulgarian. I studied Russian and Czech at university and learned Polish later on. The trickiest Slavonic language I ever looked was Slovene. Harder than Polish I'm afraid. The best thing about Polish is ... Poland!!! My God, I love that country and the people in it and when you actually speak to them in Polish they are SO encouraging and helpful.

It's not only Polish, Slavic languages in general have many grammatical cases (mine has 7 also), and also 3 genders.

to be fair ... i bet is easier for you to learn how to write in polish then english lol . since we spell almost identical to how we speak and have ton of rules in case we don't. it actually seems to be a rule of thumb for hardest languages (polish , finish , hungarian )
medvidekmisa (19 days ago)
i find hungarian way more complicated...but maybe iam wrong, also czech language (my born) is very very hard to master we have lots of different variables and times for every word that changes that word and to chooose the right "shape" as we call it is almost imposible for foreigners, so yes you can learn it and speak at comunication level but very few can speak perfect
Ukrainian is more difficult than Polish.
але принаймні легше навчитися читати українські назви, ніж французькі та анґлійські. Іноземцю (наприклад німцеві або туркові) достатньо вивчити наших 33 букви, аби якісь наші назви читати. А щоб навчитися читати французькі, анґлійські або ірландські назви, треба трішки "попотіти", і "спільний алфавіт" цьому не допоможе.

Ні. Українська тяжка лише чрез кирилицю для іноземців, в іншому, в цілому, не тяжча за польську, яка набагато тяжче сприймається на весть, її тяжче вимовляти, а також писати

Polish grammar is a nightmare but spelling is quite simple. In English it is opposite. There are no rules for spelling ha ha. So each language has its own challenges

The "Wirtuana Polska" portal is a hypocritical portal. If it was a newspaper, it would be treated like an ordinary tabloid. The information is unreliable there, based on guesses and opinions of incompetent people. The "Wirtualna Polska" portal very often misrepresents reality. I do not recommend this site, I do not recommend Onet, Fakt and TVN. All this is foreign media that despise Poland and Poles. Best wishes.

I'm polish and I think that it is not so difficult language…. If you come from Europe you'll surely "feel" this language (cases, sounds, onomatopoeias), cause it possesses the indoeuropean DNA, you'll "tame" this language. If you're searching for a really hard to learn language try Haida (!!!) or some of caucasian languages, or even Inuit….

The reasons Arlena speaks of I find less cultural but much much more of learning methods. I have experience first hand as a kid studying English since the age of 5, then moving abroad to an English speaking school, only to find out I have little practical knowledge of the language in conversation. I have however also experience as a Callan method English teacher, years in, and by studying with this method, I recall no issues among the students that Arlena mentioned here and I have experienced myself after coming from the "standard" teaching method. Within a month I recall students not only capable of holding a basic conversation, but also willing to converse deeper and engage into topics despite making mistakes.

It is actually uncommon to find people who can speak more than one language with native fluency.  The hardest words to pronounce in any learned language are those that contain sounds that do not exist in the native language of the person learning the new language (I’m thinking of the umlauted vowels ö and ü in German and nasalized vowels [ɑ̃ ɔ̃ ɛ̃ (œ̃)] in French for English speakers).  It takes time to train the vocal apparatus to produce the right sounds and in most cases, even if the person learns to speak the language fluently, he/she will always sound different when pronouncing those words. I’m trying to learn Polish on my own, but I’ve been told by a couple of people I told this to forget about it.  They tell me that even if I get to memorize all the declensions I will not be able to pronounce many words unless I have a Polish language teacher helping me.  Is that true?

Polish is not diffcult! I am Bulgarian, and I can unterstand about 50% without to learn this language. And after 5 day in Poland I can speek correct easily sentences. Czech language is just difficult to understand for us Bulgarians than Polish.

The whole point of the Polish language being so difficult is to increase the average intelligence of the Polish population. Just being able to comprehend the language inherently increases ones IQ by 20 points. This makes everything else a cakewalk.

2:11 Don't learn this pronounciation. The emphasis in past tense in Polish is always on penultimate syllabe for 3rd person. 3rd person for 'make' is 'robili' / 'robiły'. Let's focus on masculine. The emphasis is roBILi. Then the 1st and 2nd persons are roBILiśmy and roBILiście. Emphasing syllabe 'liś' is a mistake.

Hi Ryan, Majority of Poles never master English to the point of the native speaker, and if they do it's either the (American, British) accent or the vocabulary, but I never met or known about any polish born and raised person who would became virtually 'native speaker'. Nope, you just can't have everything in life. You envy native Poles their Polish skills, but believe me there's a lot more Poles who envy your skills of native English speaker. Be proud of what you have, and you are making effort to learn 'the most difficult language in the world.. Respect!

7:37 - droga Paulino, wiem że ty tego nie możesz powiedzieć, ale ja mogę napisać: to nie jest sprawa trudności języka tylko tego że Polacy NIE CZYTAJĄ! Przeciętny Polak czyta pół książki rocznie (swoją drogą - to dziwne zdać sobie sprawę że wyrabia się normę za kilkuset rodaków...) , to skąd ma wiedzieć jak się mówi poprawnie? Gdyby czytali to bezwiednie przyswajaliby sobie poprawne formy wyrazów!
I am tired of this hoax of Polish being one of the most difficult languages, I am Czech and Czech language is way more difficult than Polish! Czechs understand Poles better than vice versa

Jakub Kowalik (2 months ago)
To, że polski jest niby jednym z najtrudniejszych języków świata to taka brednia powtarzana tysiące razy. Języków nie da się pogrupować na jakiś neutralny zbiór łatwych i trudnych bo ich trudność wynika z cech wspólnych i rozbieżnych temu kto się tego języka uczy. Polski ma rozbudowaną fleksję rzeczownika, aspekty i liczebniki; tu się można zgodzić co do ogromnej trudności polskiego. Natomiast akcentowanie i intonowanie ma bardzo proste i regularne (na pewno wśród słowiańskich, rosyjski jest pod tym względem nieporównywalnie trudniejszy). Trudność języka zależy głównie od tego jak bardzo odbiega on pod względem swoich cech od języków które już znasz. Mandaryński, nawaho albo hmong będą ogólnie dla Europejczyka bardzo trudne ale nie dlatego że są jakoś mitycznie złożone tylko dlatego że są kompletnie odmienne. W drugą stronę działa to podobnie.

Polish Language change a lot Most new amount teenager or young people Polish Language is mix call Ponglish English words add to Polish language full max ok add normal. Most Poles bring extra by living UK and USA extra English word example Apartment or Flat Poles use this words often living abroad. Then language become Ponglish Old Polish language style it was much different difficult to learn Polish borrow from Latin words a lot of them is using Polish language. Polish grammar change many times plus language went a lot of correction I'm not the expert from the language but I can tell from the history when you look at Polish language 1130 year and today so much different.

Mamy piękny język,ale on po prostu jest prosty gdy go rozumiesz a nie znasz na pamięć.Po czasie słowa same się tworzą nawet z błedami polak cię zrozumie a jak się pogubisz u nas to każdy ci pomoże bo większość ludzi chociaż zna 20 słów po angielsku.
