Language / Does this paragraph make sense? I am learning Polish [11]

ok
I suggest that you write what you want to say in English, then wait for a native speaker's help
FYI, For females

Chciałam = I wanted (past tense)
Chciałabym = I would like to

Life / How can I change 100 PLN bank notes for smaller currency? [17]

How to break your 100 PLN notes without problems/rip-off

MacDonald's always take my hundred zloty notes without even blinking
Another good thing to do is if you are paying at a supermarket and want to pay with a large note give them a handful of coins so they only give you notes in change then at least you won't deplete their till too badly

I now try to pay for most things by credit card to avoid the problem

Language / When to use biernik? When to use dopełniacz... Narzędnik? [4]

Here is a brief rundown of the usage for each one (this is my website, which I haven't touched for ages, if native speakers would let me know if there are any errors please)

polish-dictionary.com/polish-accusative-case - Accusative Case - Biernik
polish-dictionary.com/polish-genitive-case - Genitive Case - Dopełniacz
polish-dictionary.com/polish-instrumental-case - Instrumental Case - Narzędnik

Law / Which Polish cell phone (+ Internet) operator is the best? [18]

Most of people move to Play, so I guess that this company has the most fair prices

I am fairly certain that these SIMs can only be used for data (and possibly text messaging), so they might not necessarily be the best choice for a smartphone (unless you are happy to forego the phone part of the equation)

Work / Companies within Poznan (positions available for native English speakers) [18]

To get private clients this site is worth creating an advert on (and paying the 10zl a month for it to be shown near the top)

e-korepetycje.net

Results will probably depend on your area.
There are quite a few people who just want to practice speaking. If your area has a lot of foreigners, then they might be able to get that for free.

Work / Native Speaker Translation Charge (Polish<>English) [12]

You might want to join proz.com a forum for translators, I believe some members show their rates. The site also contains useful glossaries and help on various difficult to translate phrases.

Travel / Sim Cards for International calls Poland [17]

Yes, you can get a Play Fresh SIM, top it up, then type in a special code
Play fresh internet "packet"

If you want data only (without the facility to make calls) you can get a different SIM and it works out slightly cheaper 50 zloty for 5GB

one defunct pop group (if we're talking pop groups I believe the is/are depends on whether you're using British/American English, but I'm not sure which way round)

Language / Dreamglade-lipro Polish language-learning blog [8]

look forward to seeing it, keep me posted

I would PM you the address, but I haven't made enough posts yet

In KFC I tried to order two of something that I didn't know how to use correct case with

Yes, I had a similar experience, in McDonalds when you order a meal you can't just upgrade your soft drinks to a milkshake like you can in the UK.

It's so embarrassing when they have to get a supervisor who speaks English! Oh well...
