My family and I are in Poland for a year. My husband has a contract job here. It is almost impossible to buy a good book for three-year-old kids in English language. EBooks are my only option. Recommend me something good.

Hi, I have been coming to Poland for 10 years and have now been living here for almost 2. It is very different to Canada and the UK where I am from. The poeple are great and friendly, the food is pretty good too, but there are propblems you will come across. The language is not an easy one to learn!! to say the least. As far as English being spoken, yes in most of the larger cities a lot of people can speak some level of English but not everyone, it is NOT a widely spoken language. The younger generation are all now learning it a school so it will make life easier in the long run. I live in a smaller town near Warsaw and very few people here of any age speak English. But I manage. There is a constant need for paperwork!! Internet is not the worlds fastest here, and TV is mainly in Polish, but with satalite TV you can on various channels turn off the Polish dubbing and you get English speaking. Cost of Living? that depends very much on where you are and mainly what sort of property you rent. My monthly bills are about - (in Canadian Dollars) Satalite TV $27 Internet $21 Electric $50 Gas $20 Car insurance $15 Food for 2 $400 So for a little over $500 plus rent and travel you can live pretty happily. Its the sort of place you will either love or hate!!! I know many people who came here and didnt last long. It really does depend on what youy want from the country. I would say go explore as much of it as you can while you are here, there are some amazing places to see. Krakow, Wroclaw and Gdansk are a must.

nickknock replied to the thread RELOCATING TO POLAND on the Poland forum:
TonyJacobs initially posted:
Hi all. Me and my wife (Polish) are on the verge of relocating to Poland. Currently, I am in the process of learning the language as internet research showed me this is an absolute MUST. Originally, I am Russian, however I have migrated from Russia to Cyprus in 1996 and have lived in Cyprus for over 17 years now. I speak all Russian, English AND Greek as if they were my native languages. I was wondering if any of you guys could suggest how to proceed once I am in Poland. I would love to think that I will be a little more proficient in Polish language in the very near future. However, I do not know whether my knowledge of Polish will be sufficiently good to undertake a job involving the language. So, I was hoping to find employment at one of the international (multilingual) companies in Warsaw for the time being. I already started my research about this but its a lengthy process. How possible may this be? Thank you for your time and help beforehand.

It all depends on how much money you have There are plenty of Polish language schools in Poland. Since you speak a Slavic language you should not have a problem
