Hi guys,

I am planning on coming to study in Poland and I have identified 2 universities that offer BSc Psychology in English, SWPS and Warsaw University.  The fees are a bit high than what I was considering.  If you are in a university that offers the degree program, full time in English - please let me know.

If there is any other information you guys can share with me about applying, please let me know.

Hiya, my name is Aby and we've been living in Poland for more than a year now. I have two small children, aged 2 and 4 and since they are in a nursery all day I decided I need to make more friends. My life has been pretty centred on my babies and now i have so much free time I need to get out there.

I also desperately need to learn Polish as my whole family is speaking it with ease around me and it's driving me crazy. If you have any Language tips, books, audio cd's, anything! Please let me know and maybe we can meet up?

We live in a small village in south of Poland, it's very sweet.

Hi All,
I have been coming to Poland for the last 20 years every other month for a month from States.Even though I have a small circle of friends here but when I am there it tends to get lonely specially in weekends,so I would like to make friends and help them in any way I can(even though I myself sometimes need a baby sitter cuz of language barriers).
If anyone interested just  let me know and we can hang out and chat etc.

Hi all,

Nice meeting all of you

A big Hiiii to who ever is reading this!! I am a NLP junior practitioner trying to find myself a place in Warsaw for pursuing my masters in University of Warsaw. I am planning to move there in the month of September provided everything goes on well. I am planning to a masters in cognitive science in the university of Warsaw. It would be of great help if i can get a little basic information on the country as a whole.
Some information about me would be that I am extremely friendly and fun loving. I love getting lost with the beauty of nature. I would be a great choice if you are looking up for a friend to accompany you for a morning jog. I will certainly be very helpful to get you out of stress and depression as I have practised Neuro Linguistic Programming(NLP) in India. I can teach people about India and its culture and I would also love to listen to polish cultural stories. I am sure I will very soon build my polish family through this network! :)

With Love,

Practical verbs for you

Poland is famous for hospitality. In big cities it's really easy to find jobs. What's more companies very often recruit foreigners beacuase we are not efficient. We dont have labours as well as profesionals. Many Polish people have moved abroad.
What you need to know. Polish languege is heavy. Especially pronounciation and grammar. In big cities are schools that teach  Polish .
We have incredible history. Our sighteeinhs are also amazing. Some of them are on UNESCO list.
Cracow is beatiful, Warsaw and Lazienki and Palace on Water facultative to see!
Lake"Eye of the See" in Zakopane is probabably the most beatiful view in Poland

Vicky, welcome to Poland! I am not sure if I understood correctly... Are you looking for a place to stay? I am a teacher, currently living in Warsaw, and I am looking for a roommate. I live close to the city center and both universities....not to mention a beautiful park; perfect for nature lovers 😊 Fun fact. My major at the university was anthropological linguistics😁

Hello good people,
I am glad to be here, I hope my expectations will be met. I am visiting Poland in October, so I'm here to seek advice, guide and probably company. I am an interesting guy to be with.

What exactly do you need?

You know what every Polish big city has website, where you can find helpful services as well as information about places to rent, cars for sale etc. It's easy to seek that sites, beacuse names are very similar to names of cities e. g. Szczecin and
It' could be good quide for you. Unfortunately the service is in Polish.
