Feedback / Member warning system to prevent abuse / spam / off-topic posts [139]

@Ironside: If someone calls me stupid because I won't believe in god, this has nothing to do with " accepting an other persons opinion " it's clearly an insult and provocation, and it feels wrong if mods punish me for defending my point rather than punishing the guy who came up with such insulting claim.

So please don't even try to comment if you haven't got a clue what this was about.

Merged: Am I the only one getting warnings for posting off topic?

I was bashed by two religious id***s, and I was getting warnings for posting off topic, while they did not get anything.

The mods do not seem to be as neutral as I thought. If you are not polish and don't believe in god, you only can LOSE in this forum.

This is BS. It's totally normal that some thread discussion go in an other direction. It's called human. If the thread-subject leads to an other subject, let people discuss! Especially when the subject is already answered anyway. All of us are here to discuss, and it would just be annoying to always open up a new thread just because a discussion took an other path.

In real conversations you also discuss about everything and don't say " Oh, you are changing the topic? We have to make an extra appointment about it ", no you just go ahead.

Besides that, it should be allowed to defend your position. Some people on this forum come up with total brainwashed crap, it's normal to defend your opinion, but no..you get a warning for being off-topic. How about warning or banning brainwashed religious trolls ? Who want to force their believe on people?

Oh I forgot..you have no rights if you are not Polish and strictly Catholic.

Off-Topic / Russian or French? Learning another language besides Polish [12]

@Chemikiem

I will always learn some Polish.

But I am usually learning more than once at the same time. In my family everyone speaks Russian, my grandmother is as fluent as a native speaker and even worked as a translator in the soviet union. ( All of them had to learn it at school ). I had Russian friends and always understood one or the other Russian word, while I always had struggles learning French. I still learn much faster than most, but even I need motivation, same as you and other people.

To me, Russian makes more sense.

1. Because I can already read and write Russian, why not using this knowledge to actually learn the language?
2. Russia is spoken in quite a few countries. Russia,Belarus,Kazakhstan,Kyrgyzstan,Tajikistan and in many other countries it is used as a second language like for example Armenia,Mongolia or Estonia. And so far, I can myself visiting countries where Russian is an official or even secondary language rather than visiting African countries where French is spoken a lot ( of course I will visit France, but I've been there a lot and always could use my basic French and some German to communicate ).

3. Because I feel like I have way more connection to Russian speaking folks. I could always find friends along the Russians, while I could mostly find hate along the French ( I know it sounds generalizing, but this was my experience so far ). Besides that, my family says they are pretty sure I have some Russian ancestors more than I have French ancestors. ( but this might not be a reason to learn a language ).

4. Russian has similarities with Polish and I found quite some Poles who claim to speak some Russian.
5.I've always been interested in Russia,Ukraine,Kaz & Belarus. The chance I might even live in a Russian speaking country or even a country that uses Russian as a second language is quite high.

So now I decided to continue my Russian studies. It just seems to be more effective for me, and it definitely is a useful language, especially in times of permanently changing politics and Russia being one of the superpowers. Who knows..maybe all of us have to learn Russian in a couple of months :-)))

Off-Topic / Russian or French? Learning another language besides Polish [12]

Hey.

I am thinking about adding an other language to my mind. But I am not sure if I should go for French or Russian.

I am able to read and write Russian letters ( but that's it ) but I also have done some French basics long ago, at school.

Both cultures and languages are interesting to me, but I am really not sure what to learn.........

I live in the UK and France is next to us of course, so it would be easier to drive over there and practice, but Russia,Kasachstan,Ukraine,Mongolia make up a huge part of the world and have more natives in general...

I am really not sure what to learn.. I am not learning via school, I learn via internet and might visit one or the other language class...at some point !

Can you help me out ? Both languages are pretty useful, I just fought as a European, I might get on learning French?

@Pol attorney

You made my laugh.

My grandparents are all married outside church without any religious reasons, and they are still married. Same goes for my parents, many other couples I know, and myself.

God does not exist, so there is nothing that can collapse because of him. But if you believe in him, go for it. But please stop claiming things will go a negative way if people don't base their life on him or believe in him.

To me it seems pointless. I would get more money out of it, if I would just offer my services by myself, without a foreign company standing behind me and taking away parts of the money they would pay me as a whole if I would do it all myself.

I have been teaching German for a while, and I did not need some company finding students for me.

@Chemikiem. Thanks ! I will do give it some more time.

I also agree with your second part about languages. I've learnt and I am still learning quite some languages without any type of classroom experiences. Just learn-programs & life-experiences. Learning by doing.

Grzegorz_

Well, I personally didn't ask anything.

Besides that, I met my WIFE via internet, and we are happily married. Nothing wrong with it. Welcome in the century of advanced communication technology ! The OP might be interested in Polish culture, or has some sort of mental connection to Poland. I see no issue with him wanting a Polish partner. But I won't discuss this any further, since it would not lead to anything. Some people believe in partner-search via internet, some do not.. I guess that's how it rolls.

Teaching is a real job, not something to improvize.

In fact they are looking for English teachers in a " Polish forum ". This can't be a professional school.

And as you've already mentioned..1 year teaching experience... I mean everyone started at some point! But without any English qualifications? I wouldn't got there. I rather improve languages using many different sources.

Hi.

I have just joined this community, but now I feel like I want to leave again.
It feels like everything in this forum is about generalizing everything, especially when it comes to nationality.

I have seen quite some Polish-patriots who are against everyone and everything, and I have seen quite some bad comments about other nationalities.

I came to learn more about Poland & Polish language.... Does not look like the right place to do so.

Poland is not a brothel for you to come here only to date Polish women, **** off ******!

Sounds like you are insecure and feel pressurized by foreign competition.

Polish women may only, and that is if only you fulfill a set of conditions, go for your money (you have to come from richer country first)

Really? Didn't you say Poland wasn't a brothel ?

you have no chance

Sure? I know quite some standard guys who are happily married to Polish women.

In a long term it is usually the case that Polish women become dissatisfied with foreigner partner and so even the money does not compensate for this dissatisfaction

Why is that?

I am not writing it because I feel insecure about foreigner stealing Polish woman from Polish men

Of course you are not !

I just do not like some idiots coming to Poland to only get girls

Do you even know his background, why he is in Poland? Are you building up claims about someone because of one question?

Poland is not some "get your Polish wife" bazaar.

You are right, but your emotional-expressions say something totally different.

Honestly, joking aside.. You have no clue what you are talking about. It's easy to see that you have some sort of complexes & it's a fact that Polish women are quite interested in French,German,English,Swedish etc men ! It's not only because they have money, it's because they are successful, different and something new. It's in female nature to go for successful men, and as I've said..I know quite some couples which include a female Pole, non of them is a gold digger or lost interest somehow...NON.

PS: You might clear your mind before you write such stuff.

Polonia / Poland and France cultures are similar [112]

@Levi

Bleh, Poles react like that for virtually every western nation.

Maybe because people always react like this when they see something new? The French and the Brazilian are not very common in Poland, while it is quite a normal thing to come across a Russian, German or Czech guy.

Just to draw a comparison!

Your culture is dead and was substituted by the marxist/atheist/multiculturalist ideals of the Frankfurt School ...

I don't understand why you are claiming a culture is not strong just because it changed over the last 200 years. Of course there are hardly any aspects alive, but only because these so called " aspects " have evolved over time. Besides that, I am sure you would find quite some aspects that are still exactly the same if you would just search for it.

I also don't understand what 'the Frankfurt school' has to do with this, if we are talking about the same school, the school I know, is about finance and management.

UK, Ireland / Why English do not like Polish? [417]

@Roger5

In fact, not even most countrymen themselves have a proper idea about their own country. Either because they don't know how to analyse,judge and compare certain things, nor because they have lived in their own country for long enough.

I have left Germany at the age of 20, do you think I have enough of a clue about Germany and it's people? Not really. I can only talk about people I know ( friends & family ) but not about people in general, this would need some advanced analytical skills. This is why I always talk about " PERSONAL EXPERIENCES ".

Johnny reb talks about Polish people like he knows every Pole in Poland. But I think I understand what he is trying to say, however... it's not correct. I don't know where he draws the conclusion about " Polish people being political incorrect " and " British people wanting to control Poles with 'British brilliance ( whatever he means by that ) ".

This guy, Johnny, is obviously bad-mouthing things he hasn't got a clue about.

Absolutely not. Non of what you have said is even close to the real reason they are trying to keep their units down there. Please don't take your knowledge out of talkshows and petrol-station wardens.

Go and see some high-ranked US military members who have been leading operations down there for years over years, you might be able get some proper logic from them. But so far I can't see any of it in your comments.

Language / Is Polish an easy language to learn and is there a way of learning it easily? [105]

@ Lyzko

The US has got a population of 322,369,319 humans. How can you even claim, most of them would be " grossly UNDEReducated " This means you would have to know more than 60 % of all American's to even build an opinion about them, at least when it comes to things like education.

Such claims are just arrogant and stupid. I've lived in Canada, near the U.S border, so I had quite some contact with the yankees. I haven't met many who were " under-educated " most I've met were well informed about history,geography & languages.
