Poles Aloud Show – 18th & 20th October

As Poland celebrated Teachers’ Day on 14th October, we’re reviewing and comparing our own experiences of education and teaching styles both in Poland and England. In the second part of the show we’re looking at the ways of learning foreign languages that sound rather aspirational – e.g. reading original texts in the language you’re learning – and try to figure out if they work.3407

Plus our standard blocks including headlines from Poland, World Weird Web (bizarre, wonderful and strange news from around the world) and Polish for beginners (teaching you a word or two of Polish).

Wow, what a spectacular show it was this year, with some descent tunes, stunning stage effects and head to head competition. But nevertheless we’re truly devastated as Poland & UK didn’t do that well. So, we’re going to play more Eurovision songs today to cheer us all up.


Another head to head competition is taking place in Poland on Sunday 24th May, as Poles choose their representative in the second round of the presidential elections.

Poles voting in the UK – venues. Bristol based voters need to go to Dom Parafialny im. Jana Pawła II, 2 Arley Hill, Bristol BS6 5PS, the polling station is open from 7am to 9pm.

We also bring you the recent headlines form Poland, look at weird and wonderful news from around the world and teach you a word or two of Polish.

I want to live like common people” – one Polish MP decides to taste the life of an average immigrant in London. He’s going to stay there for a month, looking for a job with enough money to cover only a weekly stay. Getting in touch with voters or simply another pre-election twist?

Filipinki & Alibabki – paving the way for girls’ bands, those two unique at the time groups had emerged from high school choirs to take the Polish music scene by storm. Unlike the modern girls’ bands with each and every group member being different, Filipinki & Alibabki wore the same outfits, same hair cut and none of them followed a solo career, making the groups last for over decades.

We’re also looking at some interesting statistics when it comes to Poles getting engaged with charity, volunteering and in general, with the local community.
