Hello!
I am from Romania and I would like to relocate to Poland together with my husband. I am 32, I am an English teacher here in Romania and a freelance translator (en-fr). I do not know Polish but if I get the chance to relocate to Poland I am quite determined to learn it very well. What chances do you think I have to do that?

Thank you very much.

What are the reasons exactly, if we may know?

probably has something to do with Romania part of the EU perhaps at a guess and thinking the grass is greener in Poland for them.

Pretty much none. In more than a decade of working in education in Poland, I only ever met one non-Polish non-native speaker teacher; and that was a Russian guy who apparently spoke Polish as well as a native does and who had a Polish wife (and so no need for a work permit).

Hi Alina,

I just to life in Bucharest and also relocate myself to Krakow in Poland

And as an expat who speaks more then 2 languages you should not have a problem to find a job.
Even my employer is still looking for people, so I guess will not be an issue finding a well paid job.

And for me the biggest difference are that her are no street dogs, which were very dangerous In Bucharest, some even bit me.
But I loved the city.

B regards,

Riki

Funny, I came across the same situation with one difference - the guy was a female - Tatyana. Very positive acquaintance.

Hi Alina,

I'm in the same situation myself. Relocating to Krakow from Bucharest, together with my husband and two small children :) this summer.

I already began to study Polish, just to have some basic vocabulary.... Good luck with your move.

i've had 1 Ukrainian teacher.unfortunately she wasn't too good like you can see:D it's probably easier for Romanians to find a job because you are EU citizens.honestly if you look for a job Warsaw 'd be a better choice....or some smaller town.there are several universities in Krakow, a lot of students and graduates and there aren't too many jobs (eg.for English teacher, i have a few friends who studied English and can't find a job)

good luck

Not at all. I just consider that Poland is the country the most suitable to my soul. You might ask why Poland. Well, here there is quite a long story to tell, but, the make it short, let's just say it's part of my intuition that triggers me to this part of the world. And what is more, I visited Poland about 4 years ago and I felt extremely safe there. I felt as if I had known Warsaw for ages.

And, leaving all these hunches behind, I would really like to know if there is any real chance for me to get a life in Poland.

Romania is under the control of the IMF right now.....The grass IS greener!!

I know some Romanians who live here, they get on just fine.

I think the problem for you is your profession, why would a language school hire a non native speaker of the taught language, in a sea of native speakers and natives alike?

I would expect that you'd be on a very low wage to compete with the rest.

Perhaps you could try something else?

Best of luck!
