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.

Personal spending habits
The prices are higher, food in the school canteen was more expensive then in my home university canteen, accommodation was much more expensive as i had to rent a room and i lived in the dorm in my home university, as i wanted to know country, i spend more for traveling than at home, because at home i don't travel so much. i know the country.

Final comments
The time spend in Krakow at Academia Ekonomiczna was the best time in my life.It gave me new experience what about study,traveling,independent myself,meet new people,deal with a people from different country,know other cultures,other countries,economic situtations in different countries which i can know from news but still it's better to know it from people who live there.I found every country is different by itself and each country i live is beautiful itself.I would like to go for some simialr programme again.As i have already finished study at the university,I would like to go for some work experience programme - internship.It's the best opportunity to get work experience,learn about country,culture,learn other language and meet new people,new friends.

Personal comments
Housing at this university wasn't so good. Well, was too expensive for me. Even i've got the cheapest one, was really expensive for me.I also had to pay a half of the first month rent to the agancy which provided accommodation for me.Anyway,the agancy just received money and didn't care about anything else.University should care also about foreign students to give them accommodation as cheap as possible and students shouldn't pay extra fees for it.Also,I couldn't see the room i have rented before i arrived.So I agreed for something,I haven't seen because it was the cheapest one.
