Poland (Polska) is one of the biggest countries of Eastern and Middle Europe. It's capital city is Warsaw (Warszawa). Poland has been a member state of the European Union since May 1 2004.

Language

Polish (polski) is a Balto-Slavic language.

There are about 38 million native speakers living in Poland and about 10 milion Polish people living outside their home country. It is not determined how many of those living abroad can actually speak Polish (the estimate is from 3,5 to 10 milion). Polish has the second largest number of speakers among Slavic languages after Russian. It shares some vocabulary with the languages of the neighboring Slavic nations, most notably with Slovak, Czech, Ukrainian, and Belarusian.

Polish is written using a variant of the Latin alphabet. In addition to the standard letters of the Latin alphabet, Polish uses several additional letters like: "ą", "ć", "ę", "ł", "ń", "ó", "ś", "ż", "ź". Polish can be properly represented with the Latin-2 / ISO-8859-2 code page.

Internet availability

First internet connection in Poland was made on August 17 1991. Latest research show that:

- over 36% of Polish citizens have internet access at their homes;
- 44% of population (between age of 16 and 74) can use internet browser
- 23% of population (between age of 16 and 74) use community portals and services.

Other things to consider

All female names in Poland end with the letter "a". There are few exceptions though, like "Beatrycze" but such names are very rare. What must be taken into consideration is the fact that usually there is a difference between last names of a man and a woman. For example:

- husband: Jan Kowalski
- wife: Anna Kowalska
