This is my first ever blog post on here in part-Polish, It’s coming towards the end of my second month in Poland and though, I have travelled around Pomorskie and into Kaliningrad in that time, I have found time away from work to start to learn Polish, with Learn Polish in Gdańsk. I did a quick report before on my first week learning Polish in Gdańsk.

A lot of my followers know in the past I have learnt some Cantonese, Spanish and French. This summer and autumn, I am staying put in Gdańsk, POLAND. I have started to learn Polish and I’ll be honest – I LOVE IT! I am just a starter of course but here is my first video (first take as well). Thanks to Alina and Alicja at Learn Polish in Gdansk for helping me improve. This is just the start, tell me if you like it. I hope my Polish followers can understand my Northern Irish accent and some of what I say. I can say a lot more than this, I can order food and drink, but these are good basics to know, and I cannot wait to learn more now that I am actually living in Gdańsk. Dziękuję bardzo.
