Guys I am freezing I swear how to fill this thing with water please
I heard a joke when I first moved to Warsaw.
'How do you know a Pole loves you? They say the three magic words. Nie. Zgadzam. Sie."
I've noticed Brits and Americans really don't like to disagree directly. We tend towards phrases like "Sorry, but I'm not so sure about that..."
How do people in Poland politely disagree in a way that allows for further discussion? Would you hear something like "Sorry, ale mysle ze, nie zgadzam sie"?
Hi all, I was born in Poland and lived there until age 7 (I’m now 22) and whilst I speak Polish at home and understand 95% of things said to me sometimes I struggle to properly articulate myself and reply properly as my vocabulary is way smaller than in English, and I’m especially noticing this now that I’m back in Poland caring for my grandad, what are some good books you guys recommend to help me learn some new words, I’m currently reading Przewieszenie by R. Mróz so crime related suggestions would be welcome but open to anything
If I compare the traffic jams during the rush hour in polish cities and some cities in Europe that I have been (e. g. Barcelona in Spain, Hannover in Germany), I have to say that, although e. g. Barcelona is also a huge city (with around 1.6 M residents), the traffic jams during the rush hour was never that bad that I am witnessing in polish streets. What could be the reason for that difference (traffic light system, road network?)?
I'lld say everyone stay away from this!! They have no ranking I paid the school and addmision fees 3600+ and they denied receiving any fee.... But my bank says money already got to their account.... My bank demanded they send their statement of account to them but they also refused and every now and then they keep telling me to pay same fees I paid...... Seems scammy 💯
Would like to know some recommendation on Poland exclusive gifts that I can bring to my gf who lives in Japan that I will visit in the end of this month.
She is a sweet tooth and I am loaded with Milka and Lindt stuff to bring, but what else someone there would also enjoy and also be much harder to find/too expensive to buy there?
I am from Lithuania, and I love Poland—such a great country! I visit Krakow every year, same place, same friends; so many good memories. I also love to visit Suwalki on weekends and buy stuff in Biedronka:)
As for the question about vodka, there are plenty of Polish vodkas. I won't name them all because the list is too long, but I'm interested in what Polish people drink and love. Of course, I'm not talking about Chopin or Belvedere, as we all know them, but they are out of my budget range.
For me, the top Polish vodkas are:
- Wybora Ziemniak (potato)
What do you like and recommend?
Hi , I saw some posts (related to having two UoP) has already discussed on this group. In my case it is bit different and I just believe I would get a clear clarification. I have flexible work permit hinge on university diploma, and currently I do have UoP based Job, and I got another Offer with is UoP and a pretty similar position. And I come with the idea that I would start in the new company while I would have whole month vacation for my last month (notice period) on the old one.
So my question are, will this be an issue to either of the company? Is there any possibility they would find out?
Thanks in advance
I've recently released my first record (https://cbf2050.bandcamp.com/) (industrial death metal, inspired by SYL, Fear Factory, Anaal Nathrakh) and I'm looking for a commited drummer. If you're interested hit me up. I live near Cracow, but the distance is not important to me. I'm able to drive to wherever you live if it works out ;)
I'm a few weeks into my new job and I've learned that sales isn't for me. It's commission-based as well.
Right now I'm looking for a new job -- ideally one that can also sponsor a work permit.
I'm looking for something in customer service or similar. Doesn't need to pay much.
Can anyone help?
I’m planning to buy apple products, mainly airpods. Is there any Christmas offer that euro rtv, media markt or amazon offer during Christmas period on Apple products?
PS: I know there was discount on airpods on euro rtv during black friday week but the product was available for pickup and wasn’t available in any of the outlets in warsaw
Does anyone have experience with exchanging a Canadian Drivers License (in particular British Columbia) to a Polish one?
More exactly, the Starostwo office I’m applying won’t process the exchange unless they have an official explanation of what Class 5 is.
Please advise what your experience in terms of paperwork, etc.
I am from a major city in USA and I am visiting Poland for a month or so. I signed up for local gym in south of Poland in a small city.
Back in USA at gyms there was no interaction between guys as such although a nod is common when two men see each other eye to eye to acknowledge.
In the gym here many guys come up to me to shake hands. Is this a common gym etiquette in Poland? Should I also go and start initiating handshakes when I first enter the gym? Would I be considered rude if I don’t?
