Food / Eating Healthy in Poland [18]

thanks! its kind of a dumb question because i've been to and lived in poland numerous times, its just that most of the time i had someone else cooking for me! and usually i came home heavier than i left! now that i'm more than likely going back, i was just wondering some of my options. i guess one is just to learn how to cook! :)

Food / Eating Healthy in Poland [18]

While I know girls in Poland are thinner and probably healthier than in America, how difficult is it to eat healthy in Poland? So many of the dishes are meat and potato dishes. It just seems like there is such a culture (or at least attempt) to try to eat healthy in America, I wonder how that is in Poland.

There is one issue however - do you have a Polish passport?

Yes, since my parents were born in Poland, I have my citizenship. I'm assuming this will help!

Again, thank you everyone for your help!

In regards to the language schools in Poland and teaching English, do individuals need special certification for that? And do schools generally hire in the middle of the school year? I plan on coming to Poland sometime in January and hope to find work then.

Work / Tutoring English/Nannying in Warsaw [13]

Hello!

How difficult is is to find a job tutoring English in Warsaw or being a nanny as a way to teach children English? I am a Polish-American (my parents are from Poland, but I was born and raised in the states), speak Polish pretty fluently, have a Master's Degree, and will be moving to Warsaw for a few months to live and help out my sick grandmother. I hope to find some work like this so that I have something to do, and also as a way to make some extra money. I was hoping someone could tell me if there is a need for this kind of work (or work like it), what the pay is like, and how to find it!! If anyone could help, I would really appreciate it! Thanks!

Oh also, my Master's is in Social Work. If anyone has any ideas on maybe incorporating that into some kind of work, that would be awesome!
