I was just wondering the same thing about the people on PF.

I live here.
6 years ago I was trying to get a job in Japan to buy a flat in South Africa.
So I googled jobs in Japan, it was all teaching English, so I did a T.E.F.L course and while I was their I got offered a job teaching English here in Poland.

I have to admit I did not know much about Poland at the time but not many Polish people knew anything about Ireland (things have changed).

I actually joined PF to learn more about the social use of computers.

As most of the forum know... I wasn't born here.

Am British - had never been to Poland until a few years ago.

Now, most of my business projects are in Poland and I travel there fairly frequently.

I went to Wadowice and Krakow. It was great and I loved it! Krakow is beautiful and there was lots and lots to see, and Wadowice is small and very nice!

A very long piece of string with which I left a trail so I'd be able to find my way back to somewhere I've had a couple of nice holidays. Caution all shipping in the eastern English Channel. I hope I don't trip up any cars innocently driving through Germany.

Hey careful there you might get caught in a propeller and end up being led to somewhere like the South China Sea........, all those strings hanging about the world and that.

I have Polish ancestors on my mother's side of the family, Irish on my dad's. I live in the US and have visited Poland twice with a tour group of Polish Americans. It's a beautiful country with a lot of history.

I have a few friends in Racibórz, one of my aunts is Polish, my nephew has a Polish girlfriend, I have a Polish friend who lives here in Holland and I also have a few Polish colleagues..

I became interested in learning the Polish language because of a girl who told me she fell in love with me, but then she went off with another guy just a few days before she was supposed to meet me..

I'm teaching myself Dutch these days, I actually forgot how to speak my own language properly..

No real link to Poland; I'm a teacher and we're getting a number of new Polish children into the area, so I'm just interested in learning enough Polish to be able to make them comfortable while they settle in.

Oh - and I like those wonderful Polish chocolate bars they've started stocking in Tesco!

(I should say I'd be delighted to hear from anyone who has experience of settling into an English school or knows anything about this, as well.)

Came here initially for a few months, Loved it, realised that England was a sinking ship and decided to stay a bit longer.

Have to go back to England next week though for a few months :(
