1. We know how to speak Polish.
Unless our parents sent us to dreaded Polish school or spoke the language at home, we can usually only say a few basic words. One theory is that Polish is not a practical language for the U.S. Unlike more common languages like Chinese and Spanish, Polish simply is not very useful outside of the home.
One regret we do tend to have is that we wish we had learned more than “dziękuję” for moments when we need to communicate with our grandparents or visit family in the homeland.
