Polish is one of the most widely spoken Slavic languages and is grouped into the ‘West Slavic’ amongst them. The Polish alphabet contains several additions to basic Latin Script.
The Slavic or Slavonic languages are a group of closely related tongues of the Slavic people and a subgroup of Indo-European languages. Speakers are mostly in Eastern Europe, the Balkans as well as parts of Central Europe and North East Asia.

It only takes a few minutes and you may need to listen to it a few times but it’s well worth it. See if you can use it this weekend!
