Irish-Polish couples wanted!

Napisane przez  Redaktor
When talking about Polish emigration into Ireland in search of a new, better life, we usually focus on the economic aspect of it, but for many a new life in Ireland involves falling in love.For many it is the main reason to stay. Does love ask for a passport?
We all know disadvantages of emigration: separation from family home, often a life partner, which can be a reason for loneliness, unhappiness, divorce etc. However, this is only one side of the coin. The other one is hopes for a more balanced life, new friendships, dreams of a girl with misty eyes, long curly hair, sunny disposition…
What attracts us in our diversity?
What makes Polish-Irish couples decide to be together? What are the cultural differences and how do they affect mutual chemistry?
We are going to take a look at this phenomenon with the help of the camera’s eye.
We are currently looking for Irish-Polish couples to participate in this exciting project.
Whether you fell head over heels in love yourself or you know someone who’s in a mixed-nationality (Polish-Irish) relationship, do let us know. Spread the word: like and share this post and tag your friends who might be interested.

Our courses are recommended by various local organizations focused on social inclusion and also by the Department of Social Protection. We offer classes for all levels of proficiency - from beginners to advanced.

Additionally, for those who want to improve their fluency in spoken language, we offer conversations with a native speaker. On a successful completion of the course and after passing a final exam each participant receives a certificate. We can also provide documentary evidence to Social Welfare Office to certify participation in the language course. The cost of a 12 week course is only €99. At the moment we have places available for intermediate/advanced students on Monday at 6-7.30pm and for beginners/pre-intermediate students on Thursday at 7.30-9pm.
