Brazilian moving to Poland - job ideas, Polish language, other tips?

I`m from Brazil married with a polish guy and... guess what... living in London for now. We both like London, have quite "good" jobs, but when thinking about having a family London is just not the right place. We`ve already started paying a mortgage for a flat in Poznan where my husband`s family lives, so we definetely are on our way.

Is there any brazilian people living in Poland and does anyone else have any ideas what could I do there? What kind of job???? I`m having polish lessons here in London but what a difficult language is that???? Besides all my husband`s positive words, I`m really scared.

Please, any tips would be of huge appreciation.
Thanks

I guess it depends on your education. You may consider teaching English for a start if you are fluent. Getting some certification in that department in London would be a good idea before moving to Poland.

PS. Poland is pretty open to new things, so perhaps there is something you can "export" from the Brazilian culture and eventually make money of it. Just a suggestion.

Good luck!

I went to university, have a bacharel (that`s how it says in english?) in Tourism, but to be honest I think to do anything with my qualifications I`d need first a veeery good polish. My english is not bad, but far away from being perfect, plus there are so many native english speakers in Poland that I don`t see why a polish person would prefer to learn it with a brazilian person. Am I wrong??? Is there anybody interested in learning portuguese at all?? I don`t think so ;((((

Well, thanks again for the tips.

No need to be scared. Through personal contacts of your hubby you are likely to find something you like and in a year or two you'd pick up polish by being around it.

I know of a lot of Poles living in Brazil, but not the other way around. But I think immigration reached its height during WWII. Poznan is supposed to be a fantastic city, from what I hear. I'm also debating a similar move, but frankly, I'd rather stay in London. Then again, I'm childless, so your case is different. All the best of luck to you.

Thank you all for the feedback.

If I would move or not was something I couldn`t stop thinking about, it was driving me crazy, but after sometime I just thought about the pros and cons of each place and yes, London is a great place to live for a while, so many things you can do, restaurants, concerts to die for, shops, museums, but in few years time if I will definetely decide to have children, I`m sure nice forests, lakes, peace and lower costs of life are the things I will be looking for. I hope I will never regret, anyway we can always come back;) The best of luck to you too.

Maybe try what a lot of British people do who live in London- commute. Live outside London, somewhere nicer with a bit of greenery but close enough to London for you to work and go out.

It`s expensive and besides that I don`t feel like spending 3 hours of my day just to commute to work and come back home. In general life style here is not the best one... I wanna change!

of course!!!! just check it out in private schools and they'll beg you on their knees to encourage you to teach there :)

portuguese is still quite "oriental" language for Poles and you may think that they are not interested..that's wrong! they just don't have opportunity to try it because of small number of portuguese native speakers ( or in general people who speak it)

I advice to visit the website pracuj.pl and write down "portuguese" or "portugalski" in place where it's written "wpisz słowa kluczowe" and you'll find out that portuguese native speakers are very needed in Poland. That's how my Portuguese friend has found job in Poland.

Refering to learning portuguese language - we're realy in need of more native speakers but usualy of european portuguese not brasilian.
I hope it will work out for you...

what's the difference?

As far as I can tell, it's about as much difference as there is between standard British English and American English. That's not as much difference as there is between standard French and Quebecois, but not quite as similar as the Polish spoken in Gdańsk to the Polish spoken in Gdynia.

There are little differences all around in grammar. And bigger ones in pronunciation.

I'm learning Brasilian Portuguese, and once I bought an European audio CD course. I didn't find anything Brasilian, so I thought it will also be ok.

And gosh, Portuguese speak it almost like Germans :D

I also think that the Brasilian version is much more simple.

Wow, looks nice! Thanks :) I already found myself another audio course before, but this will also be a great help! The file size looks promising.

Wow, so good to see this post alive again :)

You are quite right Lebre. The grammar is very similar and the pronunciation is a bit different, but nothing outstanding really. We can understand each other perfectly. I would say the difference between British english and American english is a very good comparison.

Well, I wish you all a very enjoyable experience learning portuguese. It's a beautifull language:)

I am Brazilian living in Poland. I used to live also in London, and after 9 years living here would never go back to U.K. Nine years ago Poland was hard to live but now is so international.

You will love.

You will be welcome!!! I would love to have more Brazilians living in Poznan. I miss being with people from my country.

Hi.

I have a Brazilian girlfriend and have had with her for over 4 years. In the future we would like to get married. We live in UK. I have been to Brazil twice, she has been to Poland twice as well.

I am originally from Poznan :) and I love this town (specially in spring and summer) where you can enjoy pubs, clubs and a special atmosphere :)

We do not really plan to move to Poland as I do not feel like i belong there anymore :( when I go to visit my family I feel like i do not know anybody anymore. Maybe is just a question of time and getting use to Poland again :/ well I would rather move to Brazil. I love RIO!!! and also south of Brazil - Curitiba and Londrina. People love me there and they are so friendly. One thing i hate in Brazil is traffic and poverty and a big contrast between poor and rich. Everything else is perfect :)

Well. I think You will feel weird in Poland for the first couple of months and i DO RECOMMEND that U learn Polish as quick as u can because i know what that means not to understand what people around u talk about. it actually pisses off so language language and language and after a while u will feel ok in poland and will like specially in summer and spring (as these seasons are really hot and nice - better then in england).

Well, good luck and let me know what u decided.

Sincerely
