  Polish Guide Needed in Seattle on August 19, 2017





Polish Speaking Guide Needed

I am looking for a guide in Seattle on August 19 - a Polish speaking person who will keep the company of 74-year-old Janina while her granddaughter's and son is going to rafting. The person doesn't have to be a professional guide. It is enough to know Polish and English and have time to show show a little town, to talk and sit in a coffee shop. Of course for a fee. She doesn't speak English well and that's why I'm looking for somebody polish speaking. 

I will be grateful for any help or suggestions.
Best wishes,

Magdalena Adamska

  Support Two Hikers from Poland on the Appalachian Trail





Two hikers from Poland welcome your help to blaze the Appalachian Trail

Two hikers from Poland, Grzegorz Oziminski and Maciej Stromczynski, are looking for support during their hike along the Appalachian Trail. They will make the first step on July 1, 2017. That is a couple of weeks away. Both hikers live in Czestochowa, Poland. Last year they crossed the entire Pacific Crest Trail in one season going in the south/north direction. They decided to change directions on the AT starting at Mount Katahdin, Maine to close the hike at Springer Mountain, Georgia.


Grzegorz and Maciej managed to complete the PCT on their own, not knowing anybody in the United States. I found out about their PCT adventure by chance from a Polish newspaper and congratulated them. They are the first Polish hikers to complete the entire PCT in one season. This year it is the AT.   Next year they are planning to complete the Continental Divide (CD).  Completing the three major trails in the United States, PCT, AT, and CD, will put them on the list of hikers completing the Triple Crown.

The link below talks about their fund raiser in Poland.  You can also find details about their AT hike this year and the PCT last year. https://polakpotrafi.pl/projekt/appalachian-trail-polnoc-poludnie-3500-km-marszu.


I would like to help them along the Appalachian Trail by providing basic food supplies.  This can be accomplished by sending food packages to previously identified post offices along the trail.  Maciej and Grzegorz have already sent me the list of their post office stops. If you would like to contribute to the AT hike by Maciej and Grzegorz you can either send a check to me or send packages directly to the post offices along the trail.  If you choose to send the checks to me, I will handle purchasing the food items and shipping them to the hikers.  All receipts will be available to you.


My goal is to collect as many non-perishable (“hiking/trail type”) food items as possible.  Cash donations would allow me to cover shipping costs.  A $20.00 bill in a package would also be welcome by the hikers.  If you prefer to personally send food packages to Grzegorz and Maciej, I can send you the list of post office stops and estimated dates of arrival. The Post Office has certain rules about sending packages to hikers; I will be happy to provide those rules.


Thank you for all your support!

  Old Town Apartment For Rent in Warsaw





Beginning 21 July, my sweet apartment in Warsaw's Old Town will be available for short-term guests. It is a one-room apartment (one room, plus kitchen and bathroom), with sleeping capacity of two to three. It is on Piekarska street, just near the Kiliński monument.


This is my building, which is next to the pink convent and one block or so from the Old Town Square. My apartment is on the first (second, US) floor. It is in the cobbled pedestrian zone, within the UNESCO World Heritage site of Warsaw's Old Town. For the most part, only people and horses and buggies go by the kitchen window, and the main room looks out onto the courtyard (one of the nicest in Warsaw!) and convent. You can see St. Martin's and St. John's Cathedral from the window. Other photos and information available upon request. 



We'd like to have people stay there for multiple nights, ideally, and semester or academic-year stays are also possible. My dear friend and his fiancée will be taking care of the apartment for me and will be available to guests.


There are grocery shops and other amenities just downstairs and around the corner, as well of course all the restaurants, cafes and cultural life - including the castle - of Old Town. To visit Warsaw's downtown while staying here, you need no car. It is for example about a 10-15 minute walk, or a couple of bus stops, from the University of Warsaw.


It is a wonderful place to stay in Warsaw, with a special atmosphere that I miss very much.

 Learning Polish on the internet

Learning Polish on the internet


Please read info about Libratus schools and Polish government proposals posted on the FAQ page.


Below there is some info about learning Polish with help of internet as recommended by Readers or  submitted to the Editor by different educational outfits.




Reader recommended free podcasts and paid subscriptions with Piotr.

Seems great for Polish-Americans, that is people who know the language somewhat,

understand more, speak less and would like to take it to the next level.

In small daily chunks, regular readings etc.
