I am Japanese and I understand 0% of Russian, 0% of Polish, 0% of Czech, and even less of other Slavic languages
I am Polish but spent a week in Moscow. When coming back I heard very weird Russian at the airport. After few seconds I realized that it was actually Polish. In one week I totally oriented my mind to a different melody of language... and forgot my own :)

Slavic time! : Tea
I'm Polish and I'm learning Russian, and I can tell you that they're actually pretty similar (of course except for the alphabet), after a couple of lessons I could already kind of understand her.
Jestem z Brazylii. Uczę się polskiego i bardzo lubię mówić po polsku. :-)

Cześć! I'm from Poland and last year I had the trip to Prague with my friend. We had no problems understanding what we needed from Czech, really. At the train we had a long conversation with some Czech people about multiple topics including history and politics and we were able to talk. Sometimes because of misunderstandings we had to stop and explain to the other side something in other words, but generally we could communicate. We had a lot of fun because Poles think that Czech language sounds funny. Believe me, if you are Polish native, you can't stop laughing when you hear some Czech words! And how did our new Czech friends comment this? They said Polish was funny for them in the same way.

I'm a Slovak and can speak/understand Polish and Russian (mostly because two of my best childhood friends were Russian and Polish). I do have my difficulties with Croatian though. While I can understand most of it they have certain words which are completely different.

Ja sam Hrvat i radim sa turistima. Sve Slavene se može razumjeti ako govore pomalo. 80% do 90 riječi je razumljivo,možda 10 do 20% jezika treba naučiti.
I'm Czech. I understand almost all Slavic languages pretty good. For me the easiest one might be Slovakian (I understand like 98%) and than learn Russian, so I can also understand eastern slavic languages. Plus I live very lose to Poland, so I can speak Polish almost fluently.

Slavic culture and history is amazing. We have so much to offer and we should put the political differences aside and work together :) I love every single Slavic country, we are all simply great
I'm Serb and I can perfectly understand Croatian, Bosnian and Montenegrin (this exists??!) languages (=100% written and spoken language). Politics has given (and still giving) them different names, without real reasons. Langfocus, I' ve just realized that you have great videos about languages, thank you!
Yes! My late husband spoke Croatian, and he could have conversations with Russians, Poles, Slovaks, Ukranians, Slovenians...he claimed the only Slavic language he could not fudge was Czech. He understood it, but could not reply.
As a native Russian speaker, I personally found that West Slavic languages (particularly Polish and Slovak) were easy to understand and their grammar was somewhat similar to Russian. Nevertheless it took me good 3 days to finally realise, that I started understanding some Polish. They use a lot of words which are considered very old fashioned in Russian language. Now I can understand Ukrainian and Belarusian better, because I have some knowledge of Polish. Czech is very difficult to understand. Bulgarian isn’t as easy as one might think, although it uses the same alphabet, but they tend to understand us better, than we do them. Btw Paul, I think that “funny introduction” which you chose for the video about Slavic languages only represents “South Slavic” culture, it sounds very Balcan.

I'm from Serbia and I have the most difficult time understanding west Slavic languages such as Czech, Slovak and Polish although Slovak is the least difficult out of three. Macedonian is really easy to understand both spoken and written and Bulgarian is a bit more difficult than Macedonian. Slovenian is also somewhat understandable and Russian is understandable to me but that's because I studied Russian in school. I wonder if it would be the same if I haven't been learning it. I haven't heard a lot of Belarus and Ukrainian so I can't judge although I assume Belarus is pretty similar to Russian. And of course we understand Croatian perfectly clear, there are only some minor differences in vocabulary and dialects and of course alphabet but Serbia uses both cyrillic and latin so it's not a problem.
I'm Russian and I have a friend from Bosnia. We use English to communicate, so we never really tried to see how much we would understand from our respective languages. But one day she came to Russia and naturally she heard a lot of Russian. I also heard quite a bit of Bosnian when she talked to her mom on the phone. We agreed that we could at most understand some words, but the meaning was lost almost completely, so like 10-20% probably is intelligible both ways
I'm from Poland and I can communicate with Slovak and Czech without a problem. With Bulgarian and Russian is little more difficult but is not impossible.
Oh man you NEED to do an episode on the Interslavic language ......it's just amazing. You have an experiment where south, west and east Slavs are on a call and a guy tells them what to draw in Interslavic - they all draw the same scene with similar details.
