As with learning any inflected language, Polish will present the learner with numerous bramble patches and thorny routes, none of which however are insurmountable, believe me-:) All that's needed is time, laser focus and dedication. I began learning at the ripe "old" age of 31 and some twenty years a marriage and family later, am still improving my skills. Sure, in the beginning, it DOES indeed seem like a Sysephusian labor of rolling the proverbial boulder up a steep hill, but to be sure, in time, even the irregularities of counting can be learned, perhaps not easily, but eventually!!
Don't though make tactical mistake I made of learning two Slavic languages, Polish and Russian, simultaneously. In the end, while my Polish prospered, my Russian suffered.
