If there’s one thing we love more than apps, it’s different cultures. We have a tonne of language games helping people learn languages from all over the world. In this series, we look at some of the locations that fascinated us so much that we created language games for them. They are helpful for students, teachers, and travellers. Last week, we looked at Israel. This week, let’s take a look at Poland.
Poland is a country in Central Europe. It is considered to be one of the safest countries in the world to live in, and it has Polish as the official language (one of the most difficult languages to learn). It may be difficult to converse with them because it’s not easy to learn their native tongue, but it is still rewarding to visit Poland because of the security and the fascinating destinations it has to offer.
St. Mary’s Basilica in Krakow, Poland is a Brick Gothic Church which was originally built in the early 13th century. It’s 262 feet tall and famous for its wooden altarpiece carved by Veit Stoss.
The Castle of the Teutonic Order in Malbork is a World Heritage Site and the largest brick castle in the world. It served as Polish royal residences before but nowadays the castle hosts exhibitions and serves as a museum.
Tatra National Park has the highest peak in Poland and covers one of the two Alpine mountain ranges. It features sharp-edged ridges and hollows with numerous rock formations, around 650 caves, several streams and waterfalls, and over 30 mountain lakes.
The Wieliczka Salt Mine in southern Poland opened in the 13th century and continuously produced table salt until 2007. The mine showcases dozens of statues and four chapels carved out of the rock salt by the miners.
The Sand Dunes in Slowinski National Park in Northern Poland are also known as “moving dunes because their forms change. There are around 140 kilometres of walking trails, observation towers, benches and resting places in the park.
What a beautiful country! But you might be thinking how hard it will be to communicate since they’ve got one of the most difficult languages. There should be an easy way to learn Polish. Well, there is a better way . . . and that’s by playing a game.
Learn Polish Bubble Bath Game is divided into 63 categories and contains over 600 Polish words and phrases spoken by a native speaker so you’ll know how to pronounce them exactly.
So give it a try and enjoy your trip to Poland. Don’t forget to bring an excellent camera with you!
