American living in Poland

Hello. I am American, and soon will be moving to Poland. There is a girl. and she is moving back...The Polish language I cannot speak. I have questions. For a job, can I teach the English language? She is already looking for a flat. Should I be worried?

Yes. Legally working in Poland is easy if you're EU, but if you're non-EU, there's a fair amount of regulations that you'll have to go through. You'll have to get a job lined up before you come, you'll need a work permit in most cases and you'll need to get the relevant visa.

Whatever you do, do not come to Poland on a tourist stamp and overstay.

Before trying to teach English, you might want to look at the way you write it.

Work permits are not needed at any educational establishment which is Ministry of Education approved. And yes the better schools are Ministry of Education approved.

What's the chances of getting a job there if he doesn't have relevant qualifications, though?

Do you know if there's any such list of schools online, btw?
