We have 32 letters in Polish alphabet + q v x used only in loanwords.

Letters:
a ą b c ć d e ę f g h i j k l ł m n ń o ó p r s ś t u w y z ź ż
Names:
a ą be ce cie de e ę ef gie ha i jot ka el eł em en eń o ó pe er es te u wu igrek zet ziet żet

The letters are pronounced as follows:

a e i o ó/u are simple vowels, as found in Italian/Spanish - Eng. far, bet, bee, law, you

ó and u denote the same sound, they have different etymology

ą ę are o e followed by nasal - Eng. home, bone, hem, hen

y is a sound similar to reduced Eng. pointed; it's always vowel sound

----

w is v, except for some loanwords like weekend

s z - Eng. sane, zen
c dz - tz dz, pronounced as one sound

r is like Spanish/Italian r, not French/German and not English one

ł - Eng. w
in past it stayed for sound as in English milk, sell, it can be heard on old recordings

ś ź ć dź - funny hissling sounds (Eng. s z tz dz pronounced with strong y-like sound), similar consonants are found in Mandarin and Japanese
before vowels they're written si zi ci dzi

ń - palatal nasal, Sp. ñ or Eng. new (RP)
before vowels it's written ni

j - Eng. y, as in you, yaw

sz ż cz dż are more rushing and harshing sound, similar to Eng. sh zh ch j, but more retracted and less palatal
ż and rz denote the same sound, corresponding to seizure, beige

g - always hard "g" like get, give, unlike gene

h ch - similar to Eng. h or loch, Bach
Qroo₃₁ kaa₄ cro₂ kraa₃ kaa₄ qo₄₁ cra₄₁ ka₄ qoo₄₂ krá₄₂.
