    opinion on Brexit?
    Well, I wish it had never happened. It may have ruined my plans to study in the UK and live there afterwards. When it comes to the economic impact of it, some parts of the financial sector will be hurt. Some firms may change the place where they pay taxes to European countries. Oh, and I'm pretty sure that some actual inflation may reappear which isn't that bad of a thing.

    I can think in both. Although I almost always find myself thinking in English. I can also speak German.

    What does that mean that you can think in both?

    For example. when I am reading a news article in English, I analyze it and kind of comment on it in my head using English. While speaking it, my brain doesn't 'translate' Polish into English. Therefore, I am able to think in the language. The same goes for Polish. Though I do have to say that more often than not, while reading something in Polish, my brain is in 'English mode'. I hope that is sufficiently explanatory.

    What about when thinking on your own?

    English. Thinking in the language also serves as a means of practice since I don't generally have too many occasions to speak it.

    Have you heard of Edward Rydz-Smigly? Is he common knowledge in Poland? And if so, what do you know about him and what is the general impression people have of him?

    Can you use Polish instead when thinking on your own?

    I believe that he was a Polish general/marshal during the Second World War. He is widely respected here, although I don't really know anything about him since I am not patriotic at all.

      Well, Princessa Kokosowa is a pretty good snack as far as I know. The last time it was in my mouth may have been a few years ago so I don't really know whether or not I liked it.
