I have a mainly Polish American background, but only recently researched Poland's history, culture, and read some books by Polish authors. I felt a strong attachment to pretty much all of it. Researching Polish culture gave me great joy, and I decided to re-embrace my roots, as they seemed to be in my nature. I am now learning Polish, and I'm strongly considering going to medical school in Poland, if not taking a vacation there soon. I have done the basic studies from materials like Rosetta Stone and others. I have grasped pronunciation well. I think a language exchange site will be good for me at this point. I also have interest in learning Russian and Ukrainian too. I have learned to read Cyrillic alphabet but not much else.
