The aim of this thesis is to discuss the differences and similarities of the linguistics etiquette between Poland and Korea, primarily in terms of the address system.

The work includes analysis of address systems in various areas (in the academic sphere, in business, and daily life).
The work consists of four chapters. In the first chapter was presented a review of studies of linguistic politeness in Poland and South Korea. Next, contemporary definitions of terms functioning in Polish related to politeness were analyzed.

This chapter presents the analysis of factors (sociolinguistic and socio-cultural aspects) affecting Polish and Korean etiquette. For example, contemporary components of the Korean mentality and their background, as well as social phenomena resulting from it, were analyzed. As a result of the research, models were proposed showing differences in the basic approach to the politeness of both countries.
