If you learn Polish and want to know it at least at a basic level, you should definitely master at least the basic numerals. Polish numbers are used very widely, as they are an important part of everyday life. Even in those cases, if you just go shopping, it will be difficult to do without their knowledge. You can, of course, but it’s better to get at least a basic set of knowledge.

Features of numbers

For speakers of East Slavic languages ​​(Russian, Belarusian and Ukrainian), the numbers in Polish will not be anything too complicated. Yes, there are too many hissing sounds in our ears for them, which is somewhat unusual. Nevertheless, having mastered them and getting used to their frequent use, in the future you will no longer have to face additional difficulties.

Numbers in Polish are formed similarly to the Russian language, and their roots are generally similar. In the process of studying them, it will be best to just memorize.

Advice! The first step is to master a simple account. Having learned to confidently count from one to 10, you can proceed to the next steps.

List of main numbers

The table below shows the main figures in Polish. For convenience, it is precisely the pronunciation indicated in Russian letters, and not signs according to the rules of transcription, because the latter would not be so simple for ordinary people, but related to linguistics. You can first study the pronunciation of Polish numbers, guided by the Russian letters, and only then, having mastered the Polish alphabet, gradually move on to reading using the letters of this language.
