Hi InPolska, I can speak English as I know Gdansk has been recognised as tourist place. so many foreigners lives there and promoting their own business( I read somewhere). and currently Europe union or something like that has published about English speaking country overall which is for non-native English language as stated Poland positioned at number 6/7 I think as Sweden, Norway,Denmark, Switzerland etc continuously positioned as top. So what do you think and advice are much appreciated :)

and can you please tell me about the city and its atmosphere.?

That poll is by a private company selling English lessons and is meaningless. For over 95 % of jobs in Poland, English is useless unless it's backed up by Polish. Polish is far more important for anything in the service sector.

GdaƄsk is mostly a tourist destination for Polish people (and secondarily German speakers) neither of which finds the prospect of dealing with a waiter in English to be delightful.

Poland was never a British colony so English is just a useful foreign language and not the be all and end all of education and work.

Merged: Study and Life in Poland

I am going to study in Poland in ILSP, Warsaw. Then I'm gonna go to a medical university. For the first couple of months the country would be unknown to me, so I need tips and everything you guys know from living costs, to telecom providers, to internet, to food, to credit cards, to everything that a teenager will need in Poland. Thank you.
