Due to unforeseen circumstances, we had to leave Poland.
I’m sad to be gone, and bummed that this round of language learning will more or less stop here, but there’s really nothing I can do about it at this time, and so I’m marking this as “done.”
Some learning is better than no learning.
Unfortunately though, my tutor friend moved to the UK back in April.
Her move, coupled with the fact that school had been keeping me very busy up until last week, means that I have not studied and learned as much as I had been doing initially.
Regardless, I am still learning, even if it’s slow and accidental.
I met a woman who lives nearby and works as a teacher of Polish and Russian, and we met up last night to get to know one another a bit and see if we would like to work together, trading lessons of our native languages.
She seems like a really nice gal, and I’m happy to have met her.
And I’m looking forward to learning Polish with her help!
I’ve been in Poland for two days now, and so far, I have learned to say please and thank you, and to ask if someone understands English, and to communicate that I don’t understand Polish.
I had forgotten how frustrating it can be to be unable to communicate easily.
I’m working on this though, and hope to soon be able to confidently communicate basic things, and then work from there over the next year or so that I will be living in Poland.
