However, without a doubt, English is the official language so the educational system has to be run in English(not teaching of English only). The reason being that the natives of the colonies speaks more than one language(except Malta and Ireland) so in order to avoid the conflict of superiority complex they opted for the English Language.I don't see why people on here think is almost impossible to get a job whilst studying in Poland without knowing the language. It entirely depends on what the person have to offer in the job market. I was once a student here(though I never worked) but I had colleagues who were non Europeans but they were having part-time jobs. Most of them had full time jobs waiting for them before they even graduated. If you speak French and English(even if you're non European), you stand a better chance of securing a job in Poland than an average Pole.
