What you'll do

Is it your first time in Poland? Or maybe you keep on coming back here because the beauty of the country and its absurds charmed you? Do you ask yourself what to expect here? Or do you keep on wondering why certain things work the way they do? If your answer to either of these questions is YES, I want to invite you for “Foreigner’s Survival Kit in Poland”!

A two-hours meeting will include a beginner Polish class (aka survival vocabulary), basic information on Polish culture and customs, tips & tricks which will make your stay in Poland easier and recommendations of places worth visiting in Wrocław off the beaten tourist tracks.

The meeting point will be a statue of Papa Krasnal - the oldest dwarf of Wrocław. From there we will go to a nearby cafe/bar. A welcome drink of your choice is included in the price :)

I am looking forward to spending this time with you!

Cześć!
My name is Marta and I was born and raised in the beautiful city of Wrocław. I graduated from the Wrocław University (MA in philology) and I have been both English (15 years) & Polish (5 years) teacher in my spare time. I used to live in Spain, Macedonia and Czech Republic and I like to call myself a citizen of the world :)
I am a keen traveler and I love meeting new people! I believe there is no better way of learning about the world than getting to know new places, customs and local people.
I thought of sharing my knowledge and skills with foreigners who want to learn basic things about Poland and Polish from a local and this is how the idea "Foreigner’s Survival Kit in Poland" was born :)
Let's meet!

Marta couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful and I feel like this experience has set the tone for my time in Poland. She's very knowledgeable on a range of topics and offered a unique insight that's only possible if someone is curious and enthusiastic about sharing experiences and knowledge. My proficiency with language leaves something to be desired but Marta was patient and supportive. The experience was as enjoyable as it was useful - I had a great time and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her. Dziekuje Ci bardzo :)

Marta is very knowledgeable. She provided me with actual tips and advice on how to best enjoy Poland. She was extremely friendly, and very personable. She answered all of my questions thoroughly, and gave me a good foundation of Polish culture knowledge to build upon. It was not overwhelming, but also did not feel rushed. Meeting location was easy to find, in a safe area. I recommend this experience to anyone planning on staying in Poland longer than a week.

This was such a great experience! Marta was incredibly friendly and told us loads about Polish culture and the language. We really learnt a lot! Marta also recommended a couple of events that were happening in Wrocław that we wouldn't have known about otherwise. We had a great weekend thanks to her recommendations!
