The fact that f.e. landlords, or people in the offices generally didn't speak english i was pushed to speak polish.it wasn't so bad, because i learnt polish very quick.the university offered polish courses for beginners and imediate level as well, what was very helpful.people in shops didn't speak english,so i used or better say i tried to speak polish and it worked out.so i can say, i learn polish in level to get what i want.And also my english improved, as the study was in english and all international students spoken english.

I attended a Polish course at university but it was not like expected. I learned to less to survive due to the fact that the course focused on grammar. The whole semester was a real improvement for my English.

Even though I found it hard and only managed to get to grip with pigeon Polish, i enjoyed practising and learning the language throughout my stay in Poland.
