Work / Brazilian moving to Poland - job ideas, Polish language, other tips? [30]

Wow, so good to see this post alive again :)

There are little differences all around in grammar. And bigger ones in pronunciation.

You are quite right Lebre. The grammar is very similar and the pronunciation is a bit different, but nothing outstanding really. We can understand each other perfectly. I would say the difference between British english and American english is a very good comparison.

Well, I wish you all a very enjoyable experience learning portuguese. It's a beautifull language:)

Work / Salary expectations in Poland [373]

For someone to receive 6719 PLN a month would be considered a good salary

It's a good salary, but nothing outstanding. A private dentist, for example, should earn much more than that.

Language / I'm gonna learn Polish in a month! [86]

Hi Masks! I've been learning polish for a year now and I just wanna tell you not to expect to learn it in a month. Give yourself time and you won't get frustrated. It's a very hard language, but if you study it, you will learn it, there is no other way, it's simply matter of time.

I'm in London so I guess you are miles ahead being in Poland, but after a year I can make sentences, read childs book, speak a little bit, conjugate verbs (although I have big problem with the use of perfective and imperfective) and those 7 cases are no monsters for me anymore.

Good luck, I'm sure you will do well.

Polonia / Are Polish people required to have tourist visa for Thailand? [32]

Thank you!!! When my travel plans be more concretized I will definitely come up with more questions and suggestions :)))
If I get the visa from the Thai Embassy in London, would I get the multiple entry one? I and my husband are planning to travel around Thailand by train, then stay few days in Cambodia and then come again back to Thailand. Is it too fantastic or possible?

SeanBM, you can tell me more about Cambodia. I`ve heard great things about this little country and every day I`m more and more looking forward to going there.

UK, Ireland / What do Polish people think about Wales and Welsh people? [191]

I love Wales!!! I lived in Llandudno for 6 mth and there I met my lovely polish hubby ;)))) The rain, the smell of coal in the air, sheeps, weird accent, old ladies sitting on benchs at the beach, castles, "croeso" signs... all lovely!!!

My favourite place: Conwy Castle.

Life / Poles are not racist [776]

In Brazil where the vast majority of the people are either black or brown being white is a disadvantage,

Sorry Ingrid, but I`m also caucasian from Brazil (probably not as white as you) and can`t disagree more with you. Unfortunetely in Brazil white people are still privileged. You will find plenty of black people working as mades, builders, rubish collectors, etc, and in other hand it will be hard to find one who is not white working as doctors, lawyers, dentists, etc...

In Brazil we just like tanny skin... that`s all.

Work / Education in Poland - system and structure [118]

I know some Karolinas who are nice ;)

BTW, I`m on a Karl strike from today!!! All Karls I`ve met are as clever as a pig. I hope some day I will come across with one that will show me otherwise.

Polonia / Polonia in Uruguay [30]

I`ve been to Uruguay couple of years ago...
It`s cheap, althought not as cheap as Peru. It has a very european feeling there, arquitecture and population aspects are very similar due to imigration in the last century...in the summer is very hot, but winter is rather cold. I`m not so sure how the economy is doing there, but poverty is definetely in smaller number as in other South American countries.

UK, Ireland / A collection of noimmigration's threads or "STAY AWAY from BRITAIN" [978]

one of the blessings of not speaking other languages is that you dont understand the bollocks that other people speak, unless of course they insist on speaking english

I`m just being nice with you... you just complained of having to understand people, so writing in portuguese you don`t have to.

tomar por culo jovencito chavalito, dos veses, y tu tata abuela tanbien

I didn`t go so low... if you knew my language you would know.

then why the hell do people all round the world have this over whelming desire to pay through the nose to learn it...

It`s the easiest one, that`s why it`s a universal language. Some complex language as polish will never be spoken worlwide because it takes more than a couple of years to learn.

Overrated in what sense? Language is power. I count myself as lucky that I can understand basic discussions in different countries. French, Japanese, German and Polish being those languages. Japanese and Polish much stronger. It really aids things, especially as a teacher who can understand students better

Agree!!! I don`t think english people are stupid in general (some are, some aren`t) although they really tend to think that for knowing english they are freed to learn any other language just because it is wide spoken. It`s true they go to Spain and learn just what they really need on daily basis (I have a lot of friends in Spain who told me how english people act towards their language and I`ve seen with my own eyes as well). Even in this forum there are some english and australian people who live in Poland for quite some time and can`t speak polish. To me to learn and know another language goes much further than that. It`s a way to learn about culture, places, etc... Plus, I find rude if you visit some country expecting everyone there should speak english to comunicate with you.

News / Poland - Third World Country?? [300]

Why people are so ignorant??? Classifying countries as 3º World Country is no longer used when regarding with economic aspects. These terms were used when there was Cold War... just read the previous topics which are explaining pretty clearly .

Polish people should stop moaning and feel offended about english people or whoever says they are Third World Country. Polish people do the same when talking about Latin America, Africa and Asia.

For the so well educated polish people: In Brazil we don`t speak spanish, we don`t have sneaks or crocodiles on streets, people can buy cars as well as TVs and computers...

Everywhere in the world there will be educated people or not, rich people and poor people and I must say Poland is not a '3º World Country' and never will be, however I`ve been to some so called 3º World Contry and they are doing far better than Poland.

Not generalizing, but don`t you (polish people) getting too sensitive with this matter??
