Any polish people in Miami/South Florida?

I'm thinking about applying to a law school in Miami (either UofM or FIU). would like to talk to a polish person (preferably via email or fb) about their experiences and what it's like for a non-hispanic person to live down there (I dont speak spanish). I live in central FL

Hi,

My name is Kasia, 23yo, Polish girl after degree, who speaks native Polish, high English and medium Spanish.

I would like to go to FL for at least 1 year since my couple is making a course there.

Since a friend of mine didn't even get the tourist visa not long time ago, I've been enrolling in Au pairs webpages to try to find a family which would want to sponsor me, with no luck so far.

I wanted to ask if anyone knows any other method to enter to the States legally, or if anyone knows someone who may need an employer.

I am a little bit lost and sad since everyday my options seem to be less.

Any help will be more than welcomed :)

Yesterday I went to a Euro Food Store in Naples, I was excited to find a Polish store, I asked the lady if she spoke Polish, in Polish, she said yes, but when I started to speak Polish to her, she behaved like she didn't understand me and scurried away from behind the counter. Then she ignored me completely and when someone spoke English to her a few minutes later, she responded in English with a heavy Polish accent?

I had encountered this before in IL and CT people pretending to forget their native language.
Sorry I won't believe it, especially when your accent is as heavy as hers was.

I have been here (raised in Chicago, moved to CT -because I fell in love) since I was 9 years old, went to all American schools, college in the UK, I still speak Polish pretty great. I also write it with only a few mistakes and I welcome corrections. Linguistic skills are very important to me, so I do not get offended when someone tries to help. I have no problem speaking Polish or English depending on the company I am in.

Why would anyone be ashamed of speaking such beautiful language, Kocham Polske i kocham Polski jezyk :)

Jestem Dumna ze jestem Polka <3 Napisalabym lepiej, ale mam Amerykanska keyboard i nie mam Polskich literek :/
Przepraszam. Grazka

Fisherman49 I was born in Poland (Warsaw) but I also grew up in Chicago, close to Central Pk and Milwaukee Ave, Huge Polish community, everyone spoke Polish and many Polish churches :) The entire Milwaukee Ave was Polish, stores, grocers, flowers, pharmacies, natural (healthfood-back to nature) stores, all Polish :) Sadly it is not so any more :/ It started changing and everything is in Spanish now, the Polish people moved away to the suburbs or other states, the entire community fell apart and got scattered :/ I know exactly what you mean :) It used to be so nice, even most of the kids and teachers in grammar school spoke Polish :)

I have not found such community anywhere else in any state. I lived in CT for 6 years and I had heard there was such a community in Great Britain CT it was 80 miles each way and I always "planned" to go, but it never happened, I so regret that now. You always think you have time, grab life by the tail, never waste a minute, never miss an opportunity, never put anything off, it's a waste, really. I am looking here after I moved, but I have only been here a few days, so I am not losing hope yet :) Wish there were farmers markets here too because I only buy from local farmers. I hate grocery store foods, I am such an activist when it comes to genetically altered food and that is what they sell to people in grocery stores, from produce to meat and farm raised fish with altered genes, why would anyone eat that garbage? Polish food is completely natural, no preservatives, if it says smoked, it means smoked naturally (no "smoke flavor" added) always fresh and juicy, and if you love the old country flavor, when you bite into a fruit or a veggie, you must shop at local farm or a farmers market. Take care of what you put in to your body :) I am a very conscious shopper <3 Kocham was moi Rodacy. Grazka

I was just in Wellington! I live in NYC, but came down to visit a friend this past August. Loved the whole area and now I've been applying to jobs around there - Boca, WPB, even Miami. I hope to come down again in the next few months, maybe we can all meet for drinks!

I'm 1/4 Polish, and yet I look and act exactly like my 100% Polish Grandfather, so I definitely got all the Polish genes. I feel a strong drive to meet and date only Polish women now that I'm single again. Does anyone know a good way to meet real Polish women in their 30's to early 40's in Florida? If so contact me at "edoctor" then the "@" sign and then "att.net".

Hello! I'm from the Detroit area in Michigan and have been living in Central Florida (downtown Orlando) for almost 11years. There are several great restaurants and delis nearby. I don't speak Polish (my grandparents were all fluent) but know some phrases and would love to find more events or people in the area to connect. I've ran into several native Poles who now live here and others in Tampa/St. Pete and St. Augustine as well - some of my favorite restaurants :)

Help! I want to learn the Polish language and everywhere I look there are no classes. I am a 30 year old male living in Ft. Lauderdale. I'm American not Polish and really want to learn. Does anyone know of somewhere that I can find classes or a tutor? I have been to Poland twice and really enjoyed it.

You are correct Sir! I am a recent Polish/American transplant from Massachusetts and am 100% Polish. I have been involved in Polish School, Polish Church, Polish Picnics, dances etc:) .........I live in Sarasota and the nearest Polish Club and Polish Masses are in Venice, FL.

The Polish Club there feature a Polish Dance and Banquet on every second Saturday of the month. I am planning to be there next Saturday eve 11/29/14 at 6:PM. (Dinner & Dance = $30.00 per person).

Hopefully, I will meet plenty of Polish people, and available Ladies there of all ages, and strike up a relationship with positive, respectable and sociable people.

I speak, read and understand the Polish language which should make my initial visit there somewhat a success.
Thanx,

Czesć Malgosia! > Your perception of Sarasota is on target. Depending on your age, you may find inexpensive and nice homes in Sarasota. If you are 55 or better, you may find low priced homes in Senior Complexes all over Sarasota. For example, "PARK EAST CLUB", on Rte.#41 you can find homes there from mid $20's to high $30's I bought one there for $22,500. I invested 10K to re-model my home and am very happy and content here. These homes were built in 1971 & 72 and all in very good shape. This is the right time to be optimistic and buy, before the Snow-birds come South.

I hope this information is helpful to you..........Good Luck!

There is a Polish-language section but the main thread must be in English. Here are some Polish clubs in Florida:
