As the conflict in Syria continues, Poland has finally opened its borders to a small group of Syrian refugees. The efforts of moving the families were possible thanks to Miriam Shaded from the Estera charity (Fundacja Estera). We’re sharing stories of some of the Syrian families and look at Poles’ reactions to the new visitors.

And as usual, the recent headlines form Poland, a brief look at weird and wonderful news from around the world and a word or two of Polish for you to learn.

Poles Aloud Show – 28th & 30th June

School’s out for summer! In Poland that is, sorry to get your hopes up. We’re looking at the end of school report/ certificate called świadectwo in Polish and talk about the most popular types of summer activities.

Sorry – a major cultural difference between Polish and British attitude when using this word, so we’re going to look at some of the reasons why Brits overuse it and Poles don’t use enough of it (or do they?).
