I wonder.Is there someone speaking polish?

We all use English. That's pretty good. I like English. Preffering BE.
But I am very curious if the're people their native tongue polish is?
Perhaps someone will give me an answer to it.

Thanks,
Arek

Re: I wonder.Is there someone speaking polish?

My Italian speaking wife has a Polish surname, but only because her great-grand-father came here as a political refugee in the 1860's.

Alas, she knows less polish than I do (my Polish great-grand-parents came to the US in the 1890's), and I don't speak it at all!
