I'm looking for a book for a Polish ex-work colleague who's moving from Yorkshire to London to be with her new boyfriend. She's a lovely girl, really intelligent, living over here for a few years to improve her English.

I've seen this book on Amazon:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Londyn-Po-Polsku-Krystyna-Kaplan/dp/8324702830

and just wondered if anyone here who may speak a smidgen of Polish could confirm that I'm on the right lines? I'm guessing it's a bit of a travel guide, but the limit of my Polish language is...er... "WizzAir", so it really could be anything.

Any alternative gift ideas also greatly appreciated! Thanks to anyone who replies.

Anyone speak any Polish?!


After a few Voddies and Jack Daniels mate, I speak any language you want!...:p

Cant you download some Polish language courses and learn a few words and phrases?

By the way, the title of the book is just "London in Polish" and the writer is Krystyna-Kaplan, that's what my limited Polish suggests.

Suppose I could do, but can't really be a**ed if I'm honest. And she's moving away, so not much point any more.

I love the knack that Polish people have of saying the friendliest thing in the world, such as "You have lovely children", or "I like your shoes", but it always seems to come out in the same tone of voice as if they were saying "I'm going to kill you and it will hurt a lot". My Polish friend didn't quite understand what I meant when I told her that.

Thank you, thought it must be something like that, but good to have it confirmed.

In the highly unlikey event anyone else is ever trying to research this book, I've just found the following info on http://www.stanfords.co.uk - amazing what you can find when you Google the ISBN. So, sounds like a thumbs-up to me.

Not really a London guidebook in Polish (although it is all written in Polish), but rather a book about Polish connections in in London. Each chapter concentrates on a region of the city and highlights buildings and cultural landmarks which have contemporary or historic connections with Poland. Much of the text is concerned with descriptions and impressions of London attributed to famous Poles who have visited, worked or lived there.
Some practical information is also included eg. transport and communication matters, accommodation, when to visit etc.
