Can I do that if he only has a temporary residency
yea, they give all foreigners a 'temporary' thing, I've got one and when I renew it it's for 10 years, I really shouldn't even need one coz I'm from an EU country, but y'know Poland kinda just makes up its own rules.
I'm curious Smurf, where do you live?
Katowice.....like I said most people 35+ don't have a word and just coz people can speak English doesn't mean they a) will b) want to.
All my Polski mates speak English but going to the tax office/bank/etc is a nightmare for me. I get by, but I'd say....like with your mates, they are prob all well educated, uni educated people who can speak at least one extra lingo, ya gotta remember, the vast majority of people don't go to uni and they'll have stopped learning English the second they leave high school.....and that if they hadn't already dropped English while in high-school.
My single piece of advice is not to more here until he speaks some of the lingo....I really regret it.but having said all that I love living here..........except for the politics and the church, but I engage in neither :)
