I have been given a chance to do my second year in Poland. I have to choose to apply to either Lodz or Silesia and I would appreciate any information you could offer. I'm doing a BA honours in English and although I don't know any Polish there's a woman from Katowice who is friends with my parents who has told me a few things about those two places. There's only one campus in Lodz where I can study English but in Silesia I can study it in Katowice or Sosnowiec. Any help would be very much appreciated, thanks.
I go to Katowice a number of times a year and I find it okay. The city may not be the nicest looking. I have never being in Lodz.
If you go to Katowice, you could visit Krakow in the weekend, its about 1.20 mins from center of Katowice. And Krakow has flights everyday to Dublin. My wife studied in Katowice, and she seemed to enjoy it.
