Hello steer4omdarear,
And welcome to the Polish Forums.

first problem is my polish is very basic im learning all the time but will this be a major issue when i move over?

It depends on where you are going and what you intend on working at but YES, it is important to learn Polish, it will make life much easier for you.

second question is i thinking moving to krackow, katowice or glwice is their any other places you recommend or anyting to warn me about these 3 places i picked

I live near Krakow (I am from Dublin).
it is a city and it is quite expensive but it is beautiful.

third is work.... im qualifed mechanic but i want change in career and i wondering what jobs wood you suggest in poland for english speaker?

Teaching English is an option, there are a number of courses you can do in Ireland before you go.
You can use the search box in the top right of this page to look for teaching related threads, there are loads of them.

Let us know if you have anymore questions.

Krakow is one nice city. Mind you, I was there last in 96 so much has changed. Have they cleaned up Nowa Huta?

Not being funny mate but if you write as you talk, ive got to ask these questions:

1. Are you deliberatly talking like that because you think youre talking to foreigners?
2. Youre righting skills are not the best?
3. You really talk like that?

In any case I think you should apply for a job at the Guiness Bar in Wroclaw

Guinness
pl. Solny 5
50-060 W-w
tel. (071) 344-60-15
fax (071) 344-60-15 w.108
e-mail: krawczyk@restauracjekrawczyk.com.pl

Theres no native speakers there and they have plenty of foreign clients, the foreign locals would love im sure a friendly face to chat with over a beer or two. I think the salary rate would be around 1300 PLN / month, with tips probably over 1800 PLN.

Worth a try mes think.

It can be decent, possibly even good, but it's never going to be very good. Here in Warsaw most schools are paying about 45zl per 45 minutes to newly-qualified teachers. Work hard and you can earn 6,000zl per month (EUR 1,300). Life in Warsaw is nothing like as cheap as it used to be. A two-room flat near the city centre is going to cost you 2,000zl a month and a beer is 10zl at most places.

But to get the good jobs you will need to be qualified. That means getting a CELTA (takes four weeks and can be done in Poland during the summer for about £700).
