Work / Advice on Teaching English in Poland [709]

thanks a lot.Very encouraging! I have an experience of teaching English, however to the natives ;)in a form of a functional skill/skills for life course. I can speak and read some polish but I'm still well behind with writing. I do admit that may final goal is to secure an academic job, however I realise it wont't happen over night but rather gradually as I settle there, therefore patience may be needed. I'm right excited now and cannot wait to move. I'm going to Krakow next week (long planned) so will have an informal look around.

Genealogy / Polish looks? [1386]

I dare to say there is a slavic look or an eastern slavic look and there is nothing wrong with it> I mean, russian faces are perhaps slightly more recognisable but it may just be the way I perceive it.

As for you sweetheart, you look rather British to me read: a bit of this, a bit of that but surely a pretty face. I'm never told I look Polish and at least a 1/4 of me is (even a half if we count an asimilated Jew in); but 'mI often mistaken for an Asian or Middle Eastern which happens to be a great fun indeed.

In Social Sciences and Humanites as a subject specialism. I'm looking for the CELTA course in my area anyway and will consider it further perhaps early next year. Just want to hand my dissertation in first so at least one thing is off my shoulders.

Life / Things we enjoyed as kids in Poland [140]

ha! Observed my cousing watching it. It came back to me some time ago but couldn't recall its title. I knew it used to be maths freaks favour, a bit loopy and paranoid to me, perhaps, because of a language barrier. But still, it must be running strong as a cullic theme among polish peops in the UK as so many of them wear those puffy camisoles even these days:D love it, though

wyrób czekoladopodobny... but you know I'm some kind of pervert - I always liked it more than original chocolate!!! Really!

I can stock you up! sells for a pound, bit pricey though but can get you a couple free of charge courtesy of a spoiled Brit lol

History / Pewex and Balaton - do you rememer these Poland shops? [13]

Did you mean Baltona?
Baltona (full: Baltona Foreign Trade Company Spółka Akcyjna, former Baltona - zaopatrywanie statków) is an enterprise created in 1946 in Poland. Nationalized and subordinated to Polish communist Ministry of Foreign Trade in 1950, it was tasked with resupplying Polish ships, planes, diplomatic posts, airports, seaports, border crossings, and even scientific expeditions

As far as I know, Pewex was a hard currency shop or rather a chain of shops. My polish cousins loved it and always asked my Mum for one dollar notes instead of pounds so they could run and buy some sweets from there.

I remember being given something absolutely vile that supposed to imitate the chocolate but had less cocoa replaced with a fatty blob instead. It stuck to my gums and teeth and got me shut up for a couple of hours which obviously pleased my family. I'm not sure if they produce it any more but...and I couldn't believe it myself,Sainsburys does a non-added sugar 'chocolate' which is as chewy as the Polish one! so if you miss it here in Poland I'm keen to supply lol
