Hello everyone!

Thank you Karolina for your final blog of the month. It's a shame that you haven't had the time to write more, as I think we have all enjoyed reading your posts and finding out about life in Poland.

It's my last blog. Firstly I would like to apologize that I wrote so little. But to say the truth I have had a very busy month. Maybe in the future I will be able to write for you something more about my country and my city.

Hello everyone,

Thanks to everyone who got in touch after my last couple of blogs, in particular thanks to Jow who shared a very interesting legend about two sparring giants. There are so many tales of giants throughout the world, it seems that almost every country has its own myths of colossal human beings. It's not too late to tell us about the local legends where you are.

I have been very busy lately and I have so many things to do so this post won't be very long.
This weekend I'm going for my cousin's wedding and it will be party with a folk band. So I hope that there will be a lot of fun.

Hi.
Today I would like to answer one question first. It's about my capitol city Warsaw. I have to say that this question surprised me because I have never notice it. And here is the question:

"I would love to know more about your country and Polish culture. Also, please tell me why the capital city of your country is called 'Warsaw'? Is it because of the devastating war it saw during second world war?
With Regards,
Rajeeb"

Hello everyone,

It's Jennifer here - I'm back as your teacher blogger for the next month.

A very warm welcome to Caroline, who is our latest student blogger and many thanks for your first blog. Most people in the BBC Learning English office will tell you that my life revolves around food, so I was very interested to hear about your "national sport". We'll look in closer detail at your blog later.

Hi!
It's a great pleasure to be your blogger for this month. I would like to apologize for my English because I know that it's not perfect.

My name is Caroline and I'm from Poland. I live in a small city in the south of Poland. I'm studying geography and I would like to be a guide someday.
