You can live a descent life with 1k dollar per month!! It's a bonus if you good in IT, you can get well paying job with IT qualification!
2:languge barrier can be really challenging since most polish people speak polish,only few speak English but some are shy to even communicate with English with the fear of you laughing at them or fear of speaking with accent grin My boyfriend is polish nd he is really good in English bt nw he has gotten better because he speaks English frequently with me grin
3:One thing you should know before moving to Poland is learn some basic things about Poland,like their language,their history etc polish people tends to appreciate foreigners when they know about their culture nd please if you dnt want to experience hatred dnt date polish girls!! Interracial relationship in Poland is view differently,incase you dnt know Poland is a 99 percent homogeneous country,interracial relationship between blacks aren't common like other parts of europe,polish guys hate the idea of a black guy being with polish girl bt they have no problem taking black girl grin Double standard isn't it?

It depends on what you specialize in,if your country is a anglophone(english) speaking country then you have more chance to be an English teacher maybe for kindergarten,elementary nd home school English teacher! But if you can get a master in English trust me you have higher chance of receiving better opportunity nd salary! IT also is really a big fish in Poland!
What you should know is that Poland salary isn't as high has western Europe!!
Standard of living in western Europe is higher to Poland so indirectly to me it's almost the same!
What I'm sure of you is that with even 300k you can live comfortably in Poland! Sometimes when we see high salary we should try nd compare with standard of living if it is still making sense!
You can get job higher than 1k dollar nd live very comfortably with stable electricity,less crime,ckean roads nd extremely nice people! If you are a black tall girl you have higher chance to be a model because black model are really wanted in Poland badly!!

Cost of living,Language barriers and things one needs to know before moving there..Coming there for greener pastures..

If you are looking for greener pastures, then Poland isn't the place to go but if you are looking for a country that can serve as a stepping stone to your dream country, then Poland may be the right destination for you.

Cost of living is quite moderate compare to some countries in western Europe like Germany. To know more about cost of living in Poland, search for numbeo poland on google, you will see an updated well detailed information on the cost of living in Poland

The official language of Poland is polish so for someone coming from an English speaking country, surely, communication is going to be difficult but i will advice you to try your possible best to learn their language, it will make you feel very comfortable when you get there.

Jobs are not in abundance there and the wage is not encouraging. My ex girlfriend confirmed it as well. That is why millions of polish people are scattered all over EU and North America. Teaching English language is what international students do in Poland. That being said, your student resident permit allows you to travel to all the 26 countries in schengen zone. Germany is not far from Poland, so you may extend your job search there wink

I once heard of a program for international students in Poland, it's called "holiday working visa" i don't know if it's still ON or not but if the program is still on, you can apply for it and get a chance to work in US or Canada during summer. Working in Canada or US will add colour to your CV and this may open a way for you to live and work in the US or Canada.

I wish you good luck

Prost.

Are you sure you're in Poland?

Cuz basically every Nigerian guy in Poland dates a Polish girl. They are so easy to relate with. Na normal thing and no one has problems with that.

On the other hand, a Polish guy dating a Black girl is a very rare thing. I myself have never experienced anything like that.

And jobs are not easy to find also. 1k per month is too much for Poland, kilode!! And English is very common in Poland.

Why don't you visit Poland then you'll see all what you wrote is very laughable. Nothing there is true. In fact it's the direct opposite.

1) Jobs are very hard to find in Poland. That is self explanatory. Most of the Nigerian guys in Poland are into online hustle.

2) English is very very common in Poland. If you're in a big city like Krakow, you'll sweat before you see a young person that doesn't speak English.

3) Almost every Nigerian guy in Poland are in an interracial relationships. It's very very very easy to date Polish girls. To say they are gullible na understatement. Some African guys with nothing meaningful to do with their lives knock them up. I once heard it's the reason Polish visa Is crazy difficult for naija guys these days.
But Polish guys dating black girls is not a norm.


I doubt you've ever been to Poland.

I will reply u this last time!! For native speaker as far as i can remember they do pay you 4 to 6k per hour depending on your qualification!! You will see below some jobs offer that pay slightly below 1k dollar nd need no qualification while some are paying up to 1k dollar nd more!! Only few are paying below 1k dollar for labourer jobs!! There is nothing you can tell me about Poland that i dnt know!!
About relationship between polish nd black girls it is rare bt it does happen!!A black guy can get attacked by jealous polish guy for being with their woman while they praise a polish guy for getting a black girl!its two entirely different experience! I have a polish boyfriend so everything i type here are my experience!!

I intentionally didn't mention you earlier if you believe nothing in Poland i wnt argue with you!! If you believe polish people migrating literally mean the country has no job offer then that's your headache!!

If you are employed, life is dubai is better but you can't become a citizen in UAE, that's the only disadvantage.

Don't go to Dubai with visit visa, thinking you will see a job as soon as you get there. Don't be deceived by those agents o.

The English level in every major Polish City is very high. You should know this. Most Nigerians moving to Poland will likely be moving to a major city. Then you come out to say they don't really speak English. The way you even put it sef funny.

So what city are you in that they don't speak good English and you also see jobs of close to $1k per month?

Polish people are all over Europe working for minimum wage. Some are even in Spain working on farm for not more than $800 per month. But you're talking of how one can earn $1k per month in Poland

You think this thing you're doing is for fun and all but someone is making an important decision based on the nonsense you're spilling.

OP just apply for student visa if you want to have a shot at moving to Poland.

Nice one, kindly let us respect her opinion if she is presently in Poland I am sure she will show u evidence soon, my little suggestion for Poland, applying for Canadian visa for study/visiting is just less than 10days compare to 9ja, USA visa from Poland too is a straight forward thing. And as a Polish citizen you don't need a visa to enter Canada.
