The most important languages in Poland are English, Polish and Polish-derived, according to a new survey.
The survey found that Polish is the only language that was cited by Poles as being the most crucial in the country, followed by Polish-language spoken in the rest of Europe.
The latest national poll by Polish statistics agency INSEE, conducted by RTE, also found that, on average, Poles are much more likely to speak English than in the past.

According to the latest INSEE figures, the number of Poles who speak English at home is at an all-time high.
Only 2.1 percent of Poles now speak English as their mother tongue.
