Love / I fancy a polish girl from my school! [139]

I'm not sure what to suggest because its been a long time since I was at school! But when I first met my Polish friends I had to try hard to get them to just chat with me, as they found small talk difficult and the thing that always worked really well was to ask them questions about Poland and the language, oh and be interested in the answer!

They were really impressed when they realised I was starting to learn the language. Maybe its worth approaching her with an interest in her Polishness (I think I made up that word?!) rather than her cuteness?

Oh, I thought he just wanted to start talking to her! Yeah, asking someone out is nerve-wrecking, esp when you don't talk the same language!

Good luck either way :-)

Well... if you want something specific then just post it up in the English-Polish Translation section. There are some great people on here who are really helpful with the translations.

Another good idea is to just look through the thread and use soem of the messages other people have asked for, or search some key words in the translation section. There's tonnes of good stuff on here if you dig about and I know my guy really liked it when I first starting sending him messages in Polish, so hopefully she'll be impressed!

As for general advice.... well, I'm not sure, other than, as you have found out sometimes communication can be difficult, but don't let it stop you! It doesn't take too long to get over this hurdle as long as you keep trying!

Good luck :-)

Language / Polish Swear Words [1176]

Still, why would you want to use one swear-word when seven will do?

Lol... there's a funny youtube clip somewhere in cyberspace of a Polish guy ranting at someone on his mobile. He's talking in english but saying kurwa every other word! Makes my Polish friends cry with laughter

Language / Polish Swear Words [1176]

It's not swearing, but you could call it a pigsty, a dump, a tip - a ****ing one or not.

You could say it was a shit-hole

Not exactly one word, but if you say it in a cocky accent it sounds like one... what a shitol

Polonia / Poles in Hong Kong?? [10]

Doesn't seem so at the mo... bump the thread up over the next couple of weeks because there's definitely quite a few people missing from the forum over this Christmas period!

Language / How to say Merry Christmas in Polish? [66]

"A big star in your chimney, presents up to your neck, a christmas tree two meters tall, three crates of candy, snowman in front of your window, and New Year's Eve till dawn, wishes you Krzysiek"

I'm having a blonde moment I'm sure but.... the 'wishes you Krzysiek'.... is that wishes for someone called Krzysiek or wishes from someone called Krzysiek?

UK, Ireland / Polish immigration in UK [491]

There's an element of truth to this... if you look at the building trade. In this area and probably a rather large radius, the average starting hourly rate for a general all round builder/chippy would be about £10 ph. We couldn't employ anyone for less than that.

But... this is still a low wage comparatively, as their english counterparts are on £18+ ph.

I work in construction so I know these figures are correct, for this area anyway.
