that should be considered normal and expected from a Polish family in Poland, 1 week is not a big deal…
Well it's nice to offer and accomodate us anyway. I wouldn't come here expecting it. They could have said no, in which case we would have had to move to her parents house in Zamosc immediately.
help is always appreciated when you do not know the local market, but that should not be a very difficult thing to do, any candidate speaking fluent English or born in English speaking country could relatively easily start with a job like that
Well It's not a matter of it being difficult to find work, it's a matter of offering your help and asking all your friends if they need english teachers and just helping at all in the first place, rather than not helping. It was a nice thing to do.
that’s nice but it is not something extraordinary, it should not be a very difficult task for a local person
although it's (again) not a matter of doing something difficult but of doing something that was nice and useful, you are wrong here. She made time to go and visit the apartment and when she got there, there was a line of about 60 people waiting to see it, some with sleeping bags thinking they would have it that night and sleep there. Instead of seeing the big line and walking away, she skipped everyone, went to the man and offered a bunch of money in advance, and she got the apartment. that was nice. And we are greatful.
