In England, it should be a rule if you cant speak english you should not be allowed in the country to work

That would mean the mass deportation of all the inhabitants of Birmingham. Bit tough I feel.

What's the problem? Just don't speak to them. Problem solved.

Not a bad idea. All the scum that can't write properly (like you) wouldn't be allowed in the country. I'm willing to give up a few Poles in exchange for getting rid of the leeching, benefit claiming underclasses.

Not only that, but the lives of our teachers would be massively improved - no more "innit", no more "wat 2 b nufin" crowd would be exported....sounds absolutely fantastic. And most importantly - no more bloody chavs.

Never thought I'd see a turkey voting for Christmas.

At high school, I learnt some German. Then, I learnt English before I went to the university. I couldn't learn it good enough as my teacher was a Turk. I improved my English later when I studied mathematics, etc more. It was also easy to communicate with a Greek professor without knowing any Greek language. Even many English couldn't understand what I was saying.

That'll mean a lot of Glaswegians going home too.

really sorry to hear that! not all polish people are as nice as the ones on this forum :( regretfully.. and when one meets an awful person we often tend to dislike the whole nation, sort of a natural human reaction, i guess. i think anyone who lives in a multi-cultural environment knows how it feels

What he means is people on this forum are required to post in English unless they post in the Polish language only sub-forum :)

Only a couple Poles on this forum. Foreigners bring the bad reputation and attitude here. Sorry, if you got confused. ;)

a stroke brought on by a mugging? yea..... *cough cough bullshít cough*

Would it have negated the "mugging" if the men in question had conversed with you for a moment prior to the incident?

Porky pies, pics or GTFO.

How do you know they were Polish if they didnt tell you in English? If you dont have a trained ear its virtually impossible for a Brit to differentiate between Slavic languages.

C'mon !!

This guy was mugged and had a stroke?

So his first complaint is their lack of language skills?

Hmmm.......

For the same reason that most British people in Poland don't speak Polish well - sheer idleness and disrespect.

One of my female Polish colleagues was attacked this morning whilst coming to work, by a crazy old Polish woman. My colleague's leg's in plaster now.

She's an English teacher... obviously the old dear didn't want to learn English.

One day :(

I've noticed that writing in Polish is the hardest thing for me - probably because I never need to, except in official forms where the data is pretty much repetitive anyway.

Now,that's interesting.I don't understand how one can learn a language without learning the spelling.

I'm the opposite, I can read a page of newspaper....I can't really understand it though unless I've got a dictionary.

Naw, sure there's loads and loads of people who can't read or have a very low standard. I lived with a Spanish nanny and her spoken english was fluent but she couldn't read billboards. She just learned by speaking the language.

I wouldn't mind having that problem, Polish language breaks my heart but it's an awesome feeling to converse with someone when you consider it's such a difficult language

No offence, but I am guessing that with your level of intelligence you most probably wouldn't be able to tell the difference between a Pole and an non Pole

You are not the only one! It is a pain in the ass.

We don't have to. This is the Polish island now. We don't need any Englishmen to prosper.
Anyway - they are all retired on Costa del Sol. Only some chavs left here.
We don't have to take care about them. It's not our problem. They will die out soon.

Want a job, mate? Learn Polish.
