Are there many foreigners living there?
Wrong... there are quite a few who meet up in pubs at the weekend and every Language School has its native English, Spanish and so on speakers, once you are there for a few weeks you will find you cannot avoid them.
Is it difficult to find work as an English teacher?
No it's quite easy, although when I first started there many years ago it was easier.
There are many fly-by-night teachers nowadays who go there for six months and then leave and they drive the price down because being a native English teacher is not so exclusive nowadays.
What are the best schools to work at and what is the average price per teaching hour to charge?
At the last count there were 82 Language Schools of some description and most long-term natives tend to control the best Schools and leave the worst ones to the newbies, which is only right as we have family's here and we live here permanently.
Your best bet is to go to Lublin in early summer around June, as the schools are closing for summer and speak to them and try to find a job for September or November.
As to Zl per hour, you shouldn't work for anything less than 40zl per hour, experienced natives will be earning 50-70zl per hour.
What are the people like?
What a strange one....
People are like the way you treat them, and as Lublin is a University City with a massive student base for nine months of the year, it has quite a young outlook on many aspects of City life... a lot better than some of the other City's around Poland I would say.
Lublin is a great City and you will have a good life there, although many other City's around Poland snobbishly look down on it because of it's location close to the Ukraine border and call it Poland 'B', which is quite farcical really.
