Interesting!

Bus driver learns Polish to teach workmates the local lingo.

Glaswegian is actually the most difficult language in the world to learn, even more difficult than Polish. This is partly because of the difficult phonetics, but mostly because anyone who might be able to teach it will almost definitely frighten you away with their scary accent first.

I use Polish at work. It can be very useful when I'm engaging in idle banter, to be able to turn round to the boss and tell him that I'm explaining something important about work rather than what so-and-so was just doing that makes him a leniwiec or worse.

I hope that bus driver enjoyed his holiday in Poland. I enjoyed mine.

I was teaching at Philips Electrical in Kętrzyn once. One of the ladies said she was going on a trip to a plant in Hamilton. I shook my head...

When she returned she looked as if she'd been through hell... "Oh my god! You were right!" She couldn't understand anything.
