Hi
I need your advice:
I got this job and they offered me 190 pounds a week. 190 minus the accommodation and tax so Ill have about 110 pounds a week. I would treat this job as a possibility to learn English rather than just earning. The prob is that I dont know whether I will be able to support myself for 110 pounds a week since I am from Poland and all I know is that loaf of bread is 19p.
So what do you think? The city Ill be staying in is Warminster.
oh and I dont eat much

You could easily live off that. Having £110 a week just for transport, food and alcohol would be brilliant.

Where will you be based? I think the big Polish community in England is in Hammersmith (in London) where at least 10% of the population is Polish.

Bedford has a big Polish community too.

No, Im not going to London. This city scares me. Besides my aim is to speak in English as much as possible so Id rather meet Englishmen that Poles.

It's pretty average really. There's a supermarket called Lidl near the train station where you can get stuff really cheaply

In Aldi a loaf of bread is 29p. I think the cheapest you can get in Sainsbury's is about 50p..

You can live off Tesco value food for around 10 quid a week. Even a fiver if you have to... I speak from experience

Probably, although I don't glow in the dark yet... You also have to deal with the shame of taking your basket full of Value labelled items to the check-out. You just have to swallow your pride and get out as quick as possible
