Quoting: LizaTories renew call for migrant limit as diligent Poles impress Britons
A study published last week stated that 69% of British people believe that Polish employees work harder than British employees. On the flipside, they came last in a list of nationalities British people would like to spend a weekend with.
You didn't..... I was being a tad touchy, as some think that low skilled means *************.
Its not relevant, but my Dad left school at 15 as he wanted to be a jockey; all went well until he was 21, when he fell during a race and copped a hoof to the eye socket, blinding him in one eye. He couldn’t ride anymore, but didn’t have the education to go into office work or go to university. He worked hard, possibly had a bit of ‘right time, right place’ luck, and he’s now a supervisor manager… Dad might not have bunch of papers hanging on his office wall, but he ain’t stupid, and he’s achieved what he wants to do (plus he sometimes gets to train horses in his spare time, which keeps him happy). I guess that’s why I don’t believe that low skilled or even low educated necessarily has to mean stupid. Dad always drummed into us ‘You’ve got two arms, two legs, and a brain, so you work’, and touch wood, my siblings and I are sticking to that.
you know what, I might just look into that TEFL thing, the money is pretty decent around here for that... and if I could have chosen any occupation, I'd have loved to have been a teacher.
If it helps, when I do back home, I am hoping to do a TEFL course as well; we have a large, mainly Asian, immigrant population. I can’t remember where I saw it, but a few places do offer it by correspondence. If you do decide to go ahead and do it, let me know how it goes?
I like meeting foreigners in the UK and teaching them my language or showing that being British isn't about Xenophobia, but about being open and welcoming.
The majority of British people are really good... like most things, a few bad eggs spoils everything and gives a bad reputation. There are all sorts of generalisations and stereotypes of different nationalities, but as I travel, I’ve been fortunate to discover that the majority of people are good people just wanting to be happy in their own way.
