Polish slang

If you’ve been living in Poland for a while already, you must have noticed that by using some expressions, you’ve been automatically recognized as swój człowiek (a member of a group, somebody trustworthy). And those key phrases usually mean slang. For the reason, it’s good to know some slang expressions to win the hearts of your new Polish acquittances 😉. Especially, if you’re around youngsters, using slang seems almost unavoidable.

Pomysły na zimę

If your home is sunny Spain, hot Columbia or always-green Venezuela, our Polish winter might be slightly surprising for you. Sometimes the temperature drops to -15 Celsius degrees, the other time you wake up to see the frost outside your window and freshly snow fallen. The question is – what to do when it’s freezing outside? If your strategy is sneaking from one cosy and warm place to the other, it might come as a surprise that Poles seem not to be bothered with cold. Sun or snow...

Murals conquer Kraków! Day by day on walls, stores, blocks there are more and more expressive pictures. They occur especially in districts and neighborhoods that are associated with the gray, communist past. These paintings accustom a space anew, add color, and sometimes tell stories… Take a look! 😉

Sport is good for health. Who doesn't know this sentence? Autumn and winter are not conducive to physical activity but do not let rain and shorter days to discourage you.    Let's move and let's do something for ourselves! Especially when it s gloomy outside, regular exercises will give you a good mood and  good time.

Endorphins, caffeine and Polish language

The autumn is about to come irrevocably. Does that only mean long and rainy evenings, the lack of the optimistic sun and boredom? Of course not! Together with the beginning of October we will welcome our new and permanent students, who will start in Varia a new „Polish” chapter in their lives.
