Thank you for the information, can you think of any schools close to Kings Cross/the Stadium that I should try first.
Hmm...I live in Rataje, so I'm not very familiar with that side of the city - my suggestion is to type 'jezyk szkola poznan' into google and go from there :) I know there's a few schools around Mickiewicza, but these aren't really 'close'.
I have never heard of the "direct method schools" do you know a website that has a listing of them with an address?
I don't know of any, but basically, any school advertising Callan or any method that doesn't have coursebooks will be the direct method. The money isn't so good at these schools, but they involve *much* less preparation - in fact, you can pretty much get away with turning up 15 minutes before the class without actually having seen the material before.
I am currently working with public transportation (a first for me) but I'm figuring it out so it should be easy to get around. Also, I don't know what a CV is? Is that like a resume??
Yep, CV/Resume, same thing :) In Poland, they'll also expect a cover letter (or motivation letter, as they call it here) and a photograph with the CV.
As for public transport - pick up a KomKarta and load it with a monthly pass - it makes life much, much easier as there's no hassle with validating tickets :)
