Summary/Abstract: The text aims to present selected concepts and views, formed on the basis of sociology, which directly or indirectly refer to expressing negative emotions through language and culture. The article points out to these aspects of showing emotions, which to a greater extent, are connected more with socio-cultural than biological factors. They are more related to discovering verbal and non-verbal ways of expressing emotions through language and culture, which are unfamiliar to foreigners, for example, those learning Polish as a foreign language, The text also discusses selected phenomena and trends in expressing negative emotions, which are characteristic of Polish culture. It is useful knowledge for foreigners, who try to find themselves in new linguistic and non-linguistic space. The summary underlines the importance of sociology in glottodidactics, which is based on the belief that language is part of culture and learning it is connected with becoming accustomed to life in new society.
