All around Toledo, Detroit, Cleveland and the Midwest, more and more people are dusting off
their polka shoes and putting that old leather to good use. Polka music is still the happiest
music around. Life is too short and the world too troubled not to have some old-time fun. Now, if only
our politicians would learn to polka!
The Polish language can be challenging for those who first come into contact with it. Polish pronunciation
and the various endings of words found in Polish grammar represent a marked departure for those familiar with
Western European languages. While challenging, not only is Polish language proficiency achievable, but it can
also be an enjoyable learning experience! Much of this depends on teaching methods and language
