Hi everyone!

I was wondering if you lovely folks could help me out...

I'm currently doing an assignment on Polish Culture, and how Polish people integrated into Irish Society.

Could any of you help me out? Your own experiences?

Thanks!

Immigrants rarely integrate into any modern society. They tend to live in ethnic areas and avoid becoming complete members of society.

poles do not integrate in western european society, They are only interested in making money as opposed to making friends or learning about the culture of their host country.

Noimmigration, that's a fair point in some cases. My 2 cents worth is that they, like the Japanese, are eager to learn about ur culture when in a classroom but it tends to stay there. I think many have integrated, especially in Ireland, but there is this undeniable urge to work to send money home, rather than act for the collective benefit of the company that they work for. The Irish, like the Scots, have received the Poles better than the English in general. I've met some guys who have been to Ireland and they are pretty talented at what they do. I don't like this clustering tho, I always try to mingle with natives when I travel but that's just me

Thats not true, plenty of polish 'migrants' have integrated just fine into British society! Okay, maybe a lot don't, but I know plenty that have....rarely isnt the word to use, its not rare for immigrants to integrate.
