Sophie H. - Meet the world - International Association

Welcome to Poland!!!

This affluent area is full of life and only a few kilometers from Grodzisk Mazowiecki. The house is located in a secure neighborhood where people are welcome to walk around and explore. There are two local shops or convenient stores where you will find most of the items you may need, from food to toiletries. If you are a lover of nature and enjoy the outdoors be sure to visit the forest near by. It is small in size but it packs a punch. Showcasing the true beauty of a natural forest.

The walk to town is rather lengthy however public transportation is easily accessible. There are buses to town and taxis for a faster commute. Be sure to download the iTaxi and apps if you don’t have them already. In town you will find many shops and restaurants where you can enjoy a nice meal or have a coffee with a friend. Piknik restaurant is one of the most popular and trendy restaurants in Grodzisk. Which is suitably located within the park called Park Skarbkow. You can spend some time here walking around and enjoying the scenery. In addition to these sites there is so much more you can do from clay making, learning polish, horseback riding, eating pierogis, ice-skateing, learn how to cook pasta with my husband, play x-box with my daughter, to watching a movie in the cinema. The choice is yours.

If you want to go to Warsaw or Krakow the train station is close by. The train to Warsaw takes about 30 mins and it will drop you off in the center of the city. Where the exploration beings again. We look forward to having you join us and we cannot wait for you to experience Polish culture. We created a small art studio in the garage just for you. If you have any talents in this area please let me know.

If you have questions about other activities, just ask :) See you soon.

We are a Polish-Italian family Kasia and Marck, we run cultural Association. We live in a beautiful countryside, 45 km from Warsaw. We have two children Lili 18 years old and Julian 9 years old.

This was an unbelievably amazing time! Teaching in Poland was a lot of fun, and Kasia was super welcoming. I’m definitely grateful to have experienced this!

Kasia is extremely kind and considerate! She is very willing to work with you, and she always checks-in with you to ask your needs. I spent time at both locations, and both were lovely- each with their own perks! I also got the chance to meet so many wonderful people. Both the volunteers and the students have all been super sweet and fun to get to know. I only spent about 6 weeks here, but I absolutely would love to come back! :)

Kasia was very accommodating and helpful during my stay. I really enjoyed the experience and would recommend it to anyone who wants to visit Warsaw.

Kasia is very welcoming and flexible host she always makes sure there’s people to meet so I met some locals, and also her family.
I met amazing people while I was in Sophie Holmes, friendships that I’ll take with me for the long run.
I stayed in the Warsaw house, it’s good. Because of it I didn’t get a ride when I arrived.
You only receive the pocket money after you work 15 hours a week, which then is paid hourly according to the min. wage. Since I was there during the period with no projects, I didn’t work more than 15 hours any week. So no pocket money.
Overall it’s a good experience.
