polish language

Polish is the official language of Poland and is spoken by almost all of the 38 million inhabitants of the country. Because of large-scale emigration from Poland in various periods, millions of Polish-speakers may be found in countries like the United Kingdom, United States; Ireland, Australia, Israel, Canada, etc. The estimated number of Poles who live beyond the borders of Poland is 10 million. It may be much higher. However, it is not clear exactly how many of them can actually speak Polish. The number of native speakers of Polish worldwide is in our view likely to be around 45 million. After the  Russian language, Polish has the second largest number of speakers among Slavic languages.
