Polish is part of the West Slavic language family, spoken throughout Poland and in Polish communities in other countries such as Lithuania, Belarus, and Ukraine. Polish writing is based on the Latin script with several unique additions. Polish grammar is similar in most respects to that of Russian, and those who have studied Russian will find its grammar much easier to grasp.
