Work / English teacher from Turkey, have any chance to work in Poland? [71]

In your opinion, but the obvious need for private schools doesn't back this up does it.

I hear what u are saying UK Polska but honestly I met unqualified and inexperienced native english teachers without even a college background who would have struggled with CAE themselves, teaching in these wonderful private schools in Poland. At least someone with a pedagogical background and FCE might have more clue than these, even if their pron. is a bit rubbish?

UK, Ireland / Immgration to UK. A success? [114]

no links? no references?
nothing to back up your opinions?
I know that every nation has its scum but I still, these are not the normal average hard working people you are talking about, and the latter are certainly in the majority. It just doesn't suit people to talk about that.

Besides Britain has exported plenty of scum too....that's just how it is.... when you become dictator of the New Europe you can confiscate everyones passports, until then why not just try to maintain a sense of proportion?

So what? It gives the interpreters extra work and contributes further to the economy doesn't it? If you are moaning that it's the great British taxpayer who foots the bill, then that obviously isn't you or you wouldn't be posting half literate rubbish at 15.12 in the afternoon.

( and before anyone starts, I have an excuse, I work from home..:)

fly-by-night experts teaching polluted English to Polish children.
If you think that is okay, then shame on you.

well I don't think "fly by night experts" are OK, obviously, but my questions were A) if you choose to bring your daughter up in Poland then what did you expect in public schools...special expert Japanese lessons laid on for your special daughter? and B) why is everyone getting so snotty about a Turkish woman teaching English? Its an international language after all.

As I said FCE is quite good enough for teaching beginner and elementary school children

and could hardly speak a word of English and this is not surprising as the basic requirements are a grade 'C' in FCE (First Certificate of English).

I know you would certainly not be able to pass FCE with "hardly a word of English". This qualification (which I have taught) is certainly enough to be able to teach beginner or elementary English, and really quite a high level. In fact "First Certificate" is not a good name for it. UK Polska what did you expect? Why don't you ask if your daughter can study another language instead?

Why is everyone so precious about English Language Teaching? It's an international language and I am sure that "Turkish girl" would be a very good English teacher. Get off your high horses everyone.

Language / Need Advice On Polish-English language barrier (my Polish boyfriend and his family) [59]

tricky topic

linguistic minefield Mina..:)
Don't you mind when your bf leaves you alone for hours with people with whom you cannot communicate?
Why don't you just tell him you have something else to do in that time? Also if your bf laughs at you when u try to speak Polish why u don't tell him to STFU?

Also why don't you suggest that his parents go to fekkin English lessons if they live and work in Eire?
Apart from that, just keep at it with the POlish, keep listening and trying to join the convo and it will get easier I am sure.

Life / Do you think that Polish people are rude? [951]

Did they actually find an englishman in london though?
London is not the UK,its full of rude aggressive arse holes and wanna be compton gangstas...a sh!te hole in the bottom corner of a country

So you have been there a couple of times and had a bad time?
London is the centre of civilisation in the UK, compared to whichever provincial hellhole you have the misfortune of hailing from, full of fantastic people and amazing random conversations. And yes plenty of English people. Thank you.

To me, you sound rude and aggressive. is this a case of projection?

I dont think Polish people are rude they have a different culture and there is less insincere "Please" and "thank you"

News / British man accused of molesting teenagers in Poland [74]

British society is sick, very sick

You don't think this happens in other countries? You are sadly deluded. At least Britain is starting to address these issues, rather than sweeping them under the carpet.

News / British man accused of molesting teenagers in Poland [74]

But it keeps the best individuals, the strongest personalities who can't put up with madness of the British school away from teaching -

what logic is this? What DO you mean?
Anyway one of my kids' primary schools had a dreadful old pervert in charge of residential trips... and girls' dancing...and P.E.....and no CRB check would have picked him up because he was too clever to have been caught...:) (oh he was a scout leader too)

After enough parents complained about him he was forced to retire, I expect he went straight to Poland or the Czech republic what with all that teaching experience...:)

UK, Ireland / Do Poles and EU Citizens exploit the British welfare state [129]

Come on, z_darius ... what on earth has colonialism some 300 years ago to do with today?

everything, stu...it's called massive post colonial hangover and quite honestly both Britain and Netherlands deserve it. Our ports and stations and art galleries were built on slavery and exploitation and our motorways built by cheap immigrant labour. The Queens massive jewel collection is mostly stolen from India, etc etc...

(rants a bit)
Quite honestly we owe the Poles more than they owe us. Who held the Ottomans off at the gates of Vienna? Benefits are paltry anyway, and a drop in the ocean of the arms and war budget. Sadly we are distracted from this by propoganda and hatred published in various red top papers....:) Don't be a sucker for it..

Think of all the benefits the Mexicans are getting in the USA.

Exactly the same indeed

Love / Do Polish Women age well? [148]

society where women forsaked make-up and clothing (creams, high heels, nylons, etc) would indeed be an interesting one

forsaked make up... and CLOTHING ....would put u off your dinner Zimmy..;)
Seriously have you thought about moving to Germany..where its rare to see a woman (except prostitutes) staggering about in high heels or with her face covered with make up, to me this is refreshing, although I have heard nasty comments about this from other women such as "unfeminine", "lesbian" etc etc.

UK, Ireland / Poland and Britain? What has caused the downtur in the UK? [28]

No-one bats an eyelid.

so easy for some spoilt "expat" to make sweeping statements and become convinced nobody is as clever or as "aware" as themselves. Its a very common syndrome is people who leave the UK.

and there's plenty more where that came from if you could be bothered to look, rather than making "clever" comments from 2000 miles away.
