Not Goodbye but See you Soon

And Gabriel Garcia Marquez said „No llores porque ya se terminó… sonríe, porque sucedió” in English, don’t cry because it is finished… smile, because it happened. This is what I am gonna do, smile for what all happened during my EVS. If you want to know more about my experience, watch the following video and keep reading!

Language Shock | 11-2018

Hello everyone!!

I think it is time to write already, don’t you think so?

I have been here one month already. Time flies. As you imagine, usually when you go abroad, at the beginning you have to overcome the cultural shock. During this first month you need to get used to this new country, its culture, its people and its language. This last thing is what I am going to talk about it.  As you know I am very interested in languages, so I think it would be a interesting topic!

Where is the winter?

Before coming here people were telling me: oh, you will become a snowman there, the temperatures are not higher than -9.

Dzień dobry Państwu! V

Dzień dobry Państwu!

Nie zapomniałem o Was, jednak w ostatnich tygodniach miałem dużo nowych doświadczeń i mało czasu, aby je uporządkować. Byłem w Toruniu, Bad Oeynhausen, Dortmundzie, Rzeszowie, Łódzi oraz z moim bratem w Krakowie, a potem z kolegami we Wrocławiu. To jeszcze nie jest wszystko: zacząłem nową pracę w Artetece Wojewódzkiej Biblioteki Publicznej w Krakowie, która bardzo mi się podoba. Mam kontakt z różnymi ludźmi i bardzo często mogę mówić po polsku. To fajne.
Oprócz tego mam też nowe lekcje i nowych studentów. Cieszę się, że wiele osób z Polski, a nawet z Hiszpanii chce się uczyć mojego ojczystego języka.

Jak było w Toruniu?
Ładne miasto, historyczna starówka, hotelik, który leży w centrum. No i miałem możliwość pooddychać przez jeden tydzień czystym powietrzem. Spotkanie było profesjonalne i bardzo ciekawe.
Nie chciałbym jednak zmienić miasta, bo od kiedy wróciłem, czuję się dobrze. Jeszcze przez trzy i pół miesiąca będę w Krakowie. Choć czas biegnie,  nie czuje się bardzo zestresowany.
Cieszę się już na wiosnę i lepszą pogodę. Naprawdę mam złoty czas tutaj.

Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen!

Do not worry, I did not forget you but in the last weeks I made so many new experiences and I had no time to order them yet. I was in Toruń, Bad Oeynhausen, Dortmund, Rzeszów, Łódź with my brother in Kraków and with friends in Wrocław. Moreover, I have new work in Arteteka, which I already like in the first days so much. There I have got a lot of contact with other people and can even sometimes communicate in polish with them. It is nice.
Furthermore, I have also new courses and students. I am very proud that so many people in Poland and even from Spain want to learn my mother language.

How was Toruń?
Beautiful city, historical old town, a sweet hotel in the centre and I could breath clear air during one week. The meeting in Toruń was very professional and interesting. Again we were confronted with our self, our future and past. Nevertheless I do not want to change my city from Kraków to Toruń, because when I came back I felt good, maybe even home. Three month and a half are left in Kraków and the time is running. I am looking forward for spring and better wether. I really have a golden time here. Thank you to everybody who supported me to get in this position and who helps me or helped me every day!
