How many foreigners live in Katowice?
Why are you here?
What are you doing here?
Do you plan to stay longer?

    I've been here for nearly 12 years, working as a translator, teacher (and other
    things). I live in the South Side, which I think is the best part.
    I'm probably leaving in the summer.

    I think the same. I live also in the South Side.
    Where exactly do you live? Do you work for a language school?

    I like Katowice, although it has somewhat of a sad image/factory feeling. It is
    so great film and photo wise. And the people there make me laugh! I love the
    dialect.

    Yes, there are many places where you become that feeling.

    > And the people there make me laugh! I love the dialect.

    Do you have your favourite words from Silesian dialect? There is one which is
    said to stem from English word "broomstick" meaning the same in Silesian
    dialect, but spelled: "brumśtyk". If it's true, I don't know. I just read some
    explanations in Harry Potter book. wink

    BTW: Do you live here?
  • nasza_maggie 13.02.06, 14:32
    nope I don't smile

    Most of the dialect there is from Germany so it is funny to hear them talk in
    it, because it sounds like Polish but it isn't really. There is a sitcom on TVP
    from Silesia, but I don't remember what it is called. One of the guys is
    called 'Bercik' smile

    I was recently told of a word, that sounds like hazel - but I will refrain from
    explaining furthersmile


    There was an advert on this forum about Śląsk - silesia.com ?

    I'm almost sure, it doesn't have anything to do with hazel eyes wink But with
    an "eye"? Hmmm...

    To be continued.....

    In Piotrowice.
    At the moment I'm working for a language school, among other things.
  • ql 13.02.06, 22:08
    Which of the language schools do you work for, if it's not a secret?
    Why are you going to leave? Do you need change or are bored with
    Poland/Katowice?

    In the centre, I won't say which one, because I hate it smile

    I've been here so long that if I don't go back soon, I'll never be able to
    adapt. I'll be 36 this year and I've spent a third of my life in K-ce, I don't
    regret it. It'll be difficult to leave, really difficult, but for various
    personal reasons now is the time.
    And after the recent election results, this country is completely and utterly
    fucked anyway.

    You deserve an honorary Polish citizenship for saying this smile

    Why so? Especially after 12 years? But then again maybe it's for similar reasons
    as my family's - we've been living here together also for nearly 12 years, but
    when I'm done with my studies we also plan on moving on.

    Good morning Katowice smile

    Bercik and Święta Wojna
    Re what Nasza_Maggie wrote: the sitcom with Becik is thought to represent
    Silesia and people living here. It's true, but only to some extent. People here
    think, the sitcom is only spreading prejudices about Silesia - it hurts.
    Silesia isn't so poor as many people still think. People here aren't primitive.
    They are ...

    Yes, how they are???
  • nasza_maggie 14.02.06, 12:02
    As for the series it is crap, but there you go. It is as much silesian as allo
    allo is french smile

    I know the people there aren't primitive. But you see, any language that has
    dialects - the dialects in someway implements that the people who speak it seem
    to be of lower class than those who don't...

    Anyway - the elections are making you leave Ian? Nice excuse....

    Katowice is a big city, but can you imagine living in a Polish small town or in
    the countryside?
    Maybe someone of you lives in such place. What are your impressions?

    I've visited the Polish countryside.
    Lots of dogs and chickens.
  • ql 15.02.06, 14:01
    Yeah, lots of ...
    And what about living there?
  • ql 16.02.06, 23:35
    Yes, yes I know. I grew up in the countryside. I won't forget this time. It was
    beautiful. But, according to the subject "Katowice", I don't regret leaving
    home for where I live now.

    meeting?
