Holidays in Bydgoszcz? I snorted my tea reading that. Poland is full of so many beautiful places but Konin on the Brda ain't one of them.

Yes, still have my flat there, Dragonpiwo. So, at least I got somewhere private to stay while I am there, which is actually pretty rare these days.

I certainly won't get a flat like I have for the price I pay and it's smack in the city centre too.

My best friends in Poland live there too, so it's always nice to catch up with them and enjoy a few beers in the Old Market.

I know it's not everybody's cup of tea, but I like it and it's constantly being renovated, like the Old Market has.

The year is 2020.
IH Bydgoszcz/Toruń offer what they used to offer in 2017. We discussed it as not being a living wage back then. What is it now?

I think the year that you mentioned, juriusz, goes back even further than that.

It will never go up. You could look in five, ten years time and it will still be the same.

Their argument for low salaries is that they provide their teachers with a free flat. That's fine if you want to share (which I don't) and you want to walk 20 minutes each way (which I don't).

Even allowing for the flat, the pay is still sh&t.

IH generally employ kids who are fresh from uni / CELTA courses and looking for their first step into TEFL. They know no different and have nothing previous to compare it to.

No, I will stay in my 60 metre, 300 Euro a month central flat, on my own, 5 mins walk from the school and two minutes walk from the Adriatic.
