Hi, I'll leave it open-ended and short: does anyone have any stories/advice about working in Warsaw, Poland? Smile

Hi Kimmie,

I don't have personal experience of teaching in Warsaw, but I have been teaching in Torun (3 hours north of Warsaw) for the last 4 years. I have visited Warsaw and it is a lovely city with a beautiful old city centre. Poland's an excellent country and the school I'm with provides fantastic opportunities for professional development, especially for newly qualified teachers.

A colleague of mine from my first year here moved to Warsaw in the second year, and I believe she's still there now, enjoying herself and teaching more business English than in places outside of the capital. As always, the standard of the school you work for will play a big part in your experience, but I haven't heard as many horror stories about 'cowboy schools' in Poland as I have about places like Spain.

Whilst wages are lower than in Western Europe, this is compensated by the equally low costs of living. It's very easy to live comfortably and still save money out here.

Hope this helps,

Richard

I loved teaching in Poland and the Poles make great students. I would look at either Wroclaw or Krakow if you can choose a city. Also might want to consider Sczeczin (Stetin) because it's really easy to get to Berlin from there.
