Being offered to do GCSE Polish externally to sit the exam in 2017.
If anyone is a native speaker or does GCSE Polish (I don't think many people do), how hard is the language to learn and get used to?

I'm a native speaker, and considering I only lived in Poland until I was 8 I found the exams extremely easy.

Do you think its possible to learn the language as a new speaker, at GCSE level in a year though?

It's a hard language to learn, but you say the words the way you see them, so as soon as you get used to the sounds you'll be smashing it.

I think I'll consider it. I mean, I can pick up on languages really easily, having being fluent in Spanish, Italian and French once upon a time.

I can't possibly do the Polish GCSE, its seems hard especially the writing.


Why not do a language you won't learn from scratch, do you know any.

Those that did Polish at my school were the native speakers and they came out with A's so not even A*s.

Not Polish, but if you know Russian or Ukrainian you technically get Polish for free, it won't be that hard to grasp.

I started to learn Russian a while ago, but stopped because I had to revise for mocks, but I might get into it again

I am a native speaker and the language is hard to learn especially because its very hard to pronounce and remember, i have English that find learning Polish very hard but if you buckle down you will pass because the exam overall is easy.

https://www.aqa.org.uk/subjects/lang...ent-resources? Have a look at some past papers to see what you think. (The most recent ones are locked but the sample ones should be fine).

Taking Polish GCSE is a wonderful oppoturnity. I have spoken since I was a child however always found writing really diificult. Honestly, if you can already speak a bit I think if you put lots of effort you would fantastic. I am currently in my second year of preparing for my Polish GCSE exams (I have exams this year) and the content is decently easy. You should check the exams and you you would be suprised a lot of questions (and answers) are in English so if you already can speak a far bit of Polish you could nail the exam with effort. Good Luck with your options (and eventually if you do choose it good luck with your exams)
If you have any other questions or want to find out more. Link them down below.
