COSMOS I’ve always been interested in astronomy. At the age of six I could find in the night sky not only The Great Bear, Polaris and The Plough but also Cassiopeia and Venus. Then, I started reading books about the universe and I wanted to know everything about our solar system. I observed the shooting stars, the phases of the moon and I even went abroad to see the eclipse. I’d like to be an

THE LANDSCAPE When I’m tired of the noise of the big city I go to the mountains. I hire a room in a chalet which is situated at the end of a picturesque valley. I have a wonderful view of mountain peaks covered with snow. They belong to a large mountain range in the South of the country. There are no cars; I can only hear a few tourists and the low sound of streams and waterfalls. I’d like to

Environment protection – ochrona środowiska

Environment pollution One of the greatest problems of the contemporary world is the pollution of the environment. Cars and factories emit gases which contaminate the atmosphere. It leads to depletion of the ozone layer, acid rain and global warming. Water is also heavily polluted because of tanker leaks, oil spills and the dumping of sewage directly into rivers and seas. Deforestation and the use of fertilizers cause soil erosion, the

PLANTS – rośliny

Plants – rośliny Julka: I adore flowers! My favourite season of the year is spring! Everything is in bloom! Trees, bushes and lawns. After a long and boring winter I can finally see some life.

INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS I visited my uncle in Moscow last summer. He is an ambassador there so I could observe his work in diplomacy. Polish – Russian relations were rather tense therefore he worked on reducing the tension between the two countries. He managed to reach compromise on many important issues. He also negotiated terms of the summit which was due to take place in September. Poland and Russia signed a treaty which


THE LAW Crime The number of kidnappings for ransom is growing in proportion to economic development and the widening disproportion in incomes. Kidnappers are usually people with a criminal record for offences such as robberies, muggings or burglaries. If a family gets instructions from a kidnapper, the police should be informed, despite the warnings not to do so. When I was on holidays, I saw a robbery. I went to the bank and I was just about to take the money out

WELFARE – opieka społeczna

WELFARE – opieka społeczna Poverty A lot of people in Poland live in poverty. If they have right to welfare, they turn to the Department of Social Security. They receive a benefit but it is often too low for them to get by so they often fall into debts. Hopefully, there are a lot of charity organizations which offer financial and material support for people in need. Poverty – ubóstwo to live


RELIGION & DENOMINATIONS There are more than one hundred registered churches and religious associations in Poland. The biggest numbers belong to the Catholic Church, approximately 95% of the religious segment of Polish society. There are now 40 dioceses and 13 Latin metropolitan archdioceses, and one Byzantine-Ukrainian metropolitan archdiocese. The head of a diocese is its bishop. All the bishops together constitute the Episcopate of Poland. Apart from the Catholic Church there


ECONOMY Since the turning point of 1989, Poland has undergone great political, social and economic changes. The introduction of democratic structures, the shift from a command economy to the free market and wide-ranging systemic reforms are all achievements which enable the country to develop its economy. After a short period of recession and stagnation the crisis has been overcome. Although the inflation rate is still high, there are more and more investments

The Olympic Games

The Olympic Games You don’t have to be a great fan of sport to be excited before every Olympic Games. We all wait for this event, keeping our fingers crossed (trzymając kciuki) for the sportsmen from our country. The original Olympic Games began in 776 BC in Olympia, Greece, and was celebrated until AD 393. Evangelos Zappas sponsored the first modern international Olympic Games in 1859. And that is how it

JAK SPRAWDZAĆ SWÓJ TEKST – PORADY PRAKTYCZNE Nie ma w szkole takiego przedmiotu jak redagowanie tekstu, ale na maturze musisz uważnie sprawdzić swoje wypracowania. Oto parę rad: Nigdy nie sprawdzaj wszystkiego naraz – działaj krok po kroku.

Na poziomie podstawowym sprawdź,


LOOKING FOR A JOB Work is an essential part of our lives. Sooner or later every graduate will face the problem of job hunting. There are job centres and employment agencies which help people find a suitable job. You can find there some job offers and talk to consultants who will instruct you how to apply for a job. Employers usually want people with professional experience. Therefore, if you have no work certificate,


PROSPECTS & SECURITY WORKPLACE I have been thinking a lot about my future but I haven’t decided yet what career I should choose. All I know is that I do not want to work in a noisy, dirty and dangerous environment. That is why working in a factory on an assembly line or at a machine is not my idea of a job. I would rather be self-employed in my own company without the necessity to commute or to relocate.


JOB SATISFACTION I would like to be a banker in the future. I know it may be a boring job but it has many advantages. First of all, you receive a high salary, steady income and bonuses if you are a good employee. Some bankers enjoy such perks as a mobile phone or a company car. You also have both social and health insurance and a good pension scheme so you can feel secure about your future. There
