I spent a little time living in Poland and want to improve my Polish language skills for future trips, for potentially going back there to live again and because I feel ashamed of being monolingual. I also want to spend time hitchhiking around the Balkans and a good grounding in one Slavic language will be extremely useful to me there.
Finding classes in Cork however is tough, or the people want stupid money for it - money which I do not have. I can function to a low level in Polish, but with terrible grammar and small vocabulary. I'm still a beginner but have been trying to teach myself through both textbooks and speaking with a couple of Polish friends I have here. Not having classes allows my laziness to fight against me though, and it is winning and hindering my progress. If any Poles want in Cork want to contact me, please feel free!
