Why Anglopole? Well, it is rather obvious, and there is no secret in it – I am a Pole with a status of a resident in the UK. It is quite likely we (my family and I) will at some point become British citizens. However, I will never renounce my Polish citizenship as I will never stop being a Pole 🙂 When you combine the two nationalities, you will get the name Anglopole which suits me in this blog very well, I think. Yes, you have guessed right – a similar story is behind the adjective Ponglish = Polish+English. My Ponglish world is simply the English world seen through my Polish eyes.
I have decided to write this blog as it seems to be an interesting topic and not many people seem to be taking it up – not in English anyway. A similar blog exists written by English guys about their expereince of Poland and Poles: http://polandian.wordpress.com/ They too have encouraged me to start a similar blog about their homeland.
So, there you go, I am giving you this blog which is meant to be an entertaining way of describing my life in England and how I see her culture, climate, people, etc. Do feel free to post your comments as they are the so needed feedback which helps any writer to know how their work is received.
Best regards to you all, Graceful Grace
Ps. I also moderate an English speaking forum, Active English , where you are more than welcome if you like interesting discussions, word games, music, travels, etc.
