Thisa forum is well short on Poles living in my country.

Interestingly enough, most of the Poles that live here are much more into the history threads and tend to stay away from the "life in Poland" threads. For expat Poles, it seems to be the exact opposite.

Fine, but you did say "how to donate" when the gold membership first came available.

OK, You got me. From now on I am declaring on my profile that I can't afford a gold membership.

but anyway I don't think that nurses have English speaking in their job requirements.

Wrong there. Polish Nurses have English lessons and its its a job requirement now.

My GF is a student Nurse in Krakow.

It is definitely not a job requirement for a Polish nurse in Poland to speak English. This could be regional, or even vary from one hospital (or even a position) to another.

Oh, and were the nurses described in this thread hired the day the incident happened or, say, 20 year ago when all had Russian at school but few were taught English?

Really ? Could you show me any job offer for a nurse in Poland, which says that English speaking abilities are requaried and that they will be obligated to use English at work ?

As much as I like most of your posts even you are selling BS sometimes, like that one above.

Part of the reason was that Churchill didn't give a stuff about Poles, he disliked their selfishness.

Thats bollocks. Churchill was the only one who tried to stand up for Poland, the Americans sold Poland down the river.

Well, America never entered into a defense treaty with Poland.

Basically when Germanics visit a foreign land they show no respect.The reason is that they smell lack of laws and corruption from the time they set their feet in Slavic and mediteranean countries and so they do what they are not allowed to do home.

Because if you walk around naked or show yourass and **** public monuments in western Europe you aregoing to be reported and arrested in no time and cops willtalk to you in english.

But since we are economically inferior we take the money and play the duck(silence) as we say.(only exception Russians who arehappy to see less and less tourists).

a defense treaty with Poland.

Which as you know was fulfilled. Though you are off-topic.

Mind you America doesn't even let Poles go there without a visa or work without a green card, does it? Shows what the Americans really think of Poles.

Sorry, I simply asked my GF who is actually a student nurse. Polish nurses now have English lessons and have to pass English exams in order to qualify. To become a nurse in Poland you HAVE to speak English to sufficient standard.

Do you want me to explain that again for you or are you simply going to decide that its not a convenient reality?

The reason why they are required to speak English is so that they can communicate with other EU citizens who are equally entitled to treatment in Polish hospitals.

Thats not fitting with your little poland worldview either? EU citizens have a RIGHT to treatment in Poland.

BTW, Polish Nurses are trained to British Royal School of Nurses standards - they are at least the same standard of training, possibly higher.

May I suggest 'Confronting Legends' by Lynne Olson and Stanley Cloud? "They doomed themselves by their follies" was said by Churchill. He was critical and I meant that he didn't care insofaras he didn't sufficiently acknowledge the huge and telling contribution made by Poles. Yalta and Tehran were hardly rewards ;) ;)

Roosevelt and Churchill were acting together.

So, how about Kraków?

Poland had a defence treaty with Britain; why didn't it defeat Germany and save Britain from six years of war?

doesn't it?

Canada also showed what they think of the Czechs recently by stripping THEM of visa-free travel rights due to too many illegal Czechs living there.

funny what happens when you break the rules.

It is normal that foreigners fill the asphalt with broken noses and heads and ask for help, but no help is given...

Who helped poland when poland was invaded by both Germans and russians?

Nobody

Why should nurses speak anything else other than polish?

After all, this is POLAND, and not anything else. We are not anybody's slaves,
and we will fight forever to protect our country from all kind of foreigners invaders
any way we can

Shows what they think of Poles and Czechs.

Good for their travel plans that Britain welcomes them with open arms. Just a shame that some of the more chamski posters here talk about attacking foreign tourists.

There was no defense treaty but there was presidential election, during which Roosevelt made promises and gladly took photo-ops in front of a map with Poland's borders promised to the Polish-American voters to be the same as pre-1939

Sorry, I simply asked my GF who is actually a student nurse. Polish nurses now have English lessons and have to pass English exams in order to qualify.

Before you said it was a job requirement. It isn't.
Now you're saying that "Polish" nurses have to pass English exams. That is not true either. In some schools English is among compulsory subjects, in others it is not.

Canada also showed what they think of the Czechs recently by stripping THEM of visa-free travel rights due to too many illegal Czechs living there.

That's kinda true. The visa requirement was imposed indeed, but the culprits are only sorta Czechs, but most not really.

Do you work for the Polish tourist industry? That's a great slogan to use to get people to visit.

their use of the word 'we' gives a clue.

Ironside, I covered that point above. It was Churchill's own belief, not mine.

bpcc.org.pl/en/content/view/2089/ on the topic of Kraków (a speech), Sir Martin Gilbert spells out the ambivalence Churchill felt towards Poles. Many others have this too.
