I would like to share my experience from my vist in Poland with you. My english is not very well, but I was really suprised when I was trying to get some information from bus driver. He didn't understand nothing what I was talking to him. In my opinion bus driver should speaks english at least on communicative level. What do you think about it?
|I agree with you! Bus drivers should know english, especially in bigger cities. I remember the situation when tickets machine was broken and I couldn't buy tickets becasue bus driver didn't understand what I was talking to him. It's really weird.|
|Hi! I don't agree with you! You can always buy a ticket in tickets machine. You couldn't buy it there because it was broken. I'm sure it was an exception. I think that you should ask somebody in the bus and I guarantee that they would help you. For example in Cracow – there are so many student's so I don't think that you will have problems with communication..|
|I think that it is still quite a big problem in Poland, that shop-assistants or as you mentioned, bus drivers do not understand English. |
However, let's be fair - it only concerns older people. Young people in big cities (I've been to Cracow so I'll speak only about that city) speak quite a good English, and even other foreign languages. I've never had a situation, that a younger person didn't understand what I was saying in English. I've met a lot of people during my stay in Poland and I only had a problem once, on a railway station, when reserving a ticket to Warsaw.

Yes, I agree. Unfortunately, older people were forced to learn Russian when they were younger :-)
But I think that it is changing. More and more people learn foreign languages, even the older ones. They have to do it in order to keep their jobs or get a new one. Now it is essential for an employer to see in your resume that you are fluent in one, two or even three foreign languages.
