    Hi,

    Lectures are taught via Power-Point. Overheads and chalk boards much like in the US. Just depends on how the Professor is and what they prefer. Most tests are multiple choice with one answer. There is a currently a move to using the shelf tests at the ends of the courses. My class (2nd year of the 4 year) has about 52-54 people, and we are split into about 4 groups for most classes. Labs are smaller, maybe 7 or 8 groups depends on the course.

    Hope that helps.

    Bye, Gerry

    Are you of polish decent? Do you speak it fluently, or learning in order to do your clinicals in polish. I understand that you do not need to know polish, but your situation forces you to learn some polish. I think the school also makes it a must in order to communicate with patients.

    I am not polish, but am considering poznan, though i do speak Greek and German, i cannot speak polish. I do not find it a problem to learn though, because i love learning new languages. I have taught myself basic Serbian, and have learned to read and write in Assyrian and Arabic (though i cannot communicate with them). I am going to start teaching myself polish just so i can ease the transition if i do enter the school next fall.

    How is Poznan? Is it a friendly city? I am very interested in traveling, and I don't think i will have a problem with Poznan or Poland for that matter when it comes to culture, beliefs, customs, and the standard way of life there. How easy is it to bring over a car? I am the kind of person that CANNOT live without their car, and i would also like one to take trips on longer breaks back to my family in Greece. I understand i can buy one there, but do you know if any other US or Canadian students have done this?

    Thanks

    A couple thousand bucks should get your car onto a container, although god knows what kind of bureaucratic business you'd need to go through to import it. Best bet is buying here, or anywhere in the EU (only additional hassle from other EU countries is getting the paperwork translated, and paying an extra 500zl). Remember too that with an American car that has no equivalent model here it's more likely to get nicked, and if it's automatic you're gonna have a real blast finding someone to work on the tranny.

    Since you're a German speaker, my recommendation would be to pop over to Germany for a few days, buy yourself something there (will be in better condition because their roads are smoother), and bring it back.

    Oh, and don't forget that gas here costs close to $5 per gallon.

    I have a shipper that can get it to greece for a good price, but maybe ur right, i can get something cheap in Germany, that is just as good and probably more economical.

    ...

    Considering European fuel prices, the length of the trip and the availability of cheap air fares, driving from Poland to Greece IMO makes very little financial sense.

    I am not of Polish decent, nor do I speak Polish well. It would be helpful to speak Polish. But it is a fairly hard language to learn.

    No one has a car here and it would not be the best idea to ship one from the US. I really don't think you will driving over to Greece from Poland, maybe flying.

    If you're considering Poland, then I would suggest that you start learning Polish now.. It will make the transition and "language-shock" less difficult. If you speak English and German, then you won't have much trouble navigating Poznan, as the younger generation tends to speak English as their first foreign language and the older generation (grandma's and grandpa's) typically speak German as their first foreign language, which makes sense considering Poznan's location and history. However, learning Polish will make life much easier on a day-to-day basis and will also prepare you for 3rd and 4th year clinicals in the Poznan teaching hospitals. Incidentally, I am not of Polish decent either, and most of my classmates are not nor do they speak Polish fluently.

    Poznan is generally a safe and friendly city, although I use this term loosely because the current administration is not the most tolerant.

    Some students have cars here, but I don't know of any Americans or Canadians that have cars... A group of Taiwainese students got together and bought a used mercedes, and they car-pool to class. So, it definitely can be done, but I would suggest you just buy a car in Poland (much cheaper) or go to Germany (Berlin is 3 hours away by train) since you speak German and buy one there. If you do attempt to buy a car in Poland, then take a native Polish speaker with you so that you don't get taken.
