Poland's history of subjugation and conquest has lead to the development of a language that's complex, archaic, and difficult-to-master. Polish is hard to pronounce and must be pronounced well in order be to understood. Grammar also presents a major challenge. Words commonly have seven cases. Some words, like "two", have up to 17 cases! For every English verb, Polish speakers have to learn two new ones, and plural nouns have multiple forms depending on the quantity being described. It's said Polish grammar has more exceptions than rules.
