Interview with international student from Hungary
F. Katalin Patrícia born in Cegléd, Hungary tells about her time in Poland.
What has surprised you in Poland?
Nothing. I have known the Polish culture since my childhood. My dad is Polish and he had been living in Hungary for 23 years when he met my mother.
How did you come up with the idea of studying in Poland?
I thought that for me the best is to study in Poland. I wanted to work as a diplomat, especially in the Polish Diplomacy.
Do you remember the first days of studying in Poland? Describe the struggles you went through.
Yes, and I will remember it all my life. How to get there (the tickets)? Where is that place? Who can I ask for some help? But the hardest...the economic language and the first lecture. Macroeconomics. After the lecture I was calling my parents and I told them, that it was like a Chinese fairytale mixed with some Polish.
Tell us about the differences between studies in Poland and studies in Hungary?
I don't know. I wasn't studying in Hungary, but I think that it's the same (except the Hungarian language).
What do you like about studying in Poland?
My father is Polish, I love the Polish culture with the cuisine and because of my life goal.
Do you know any famous people from Poland?
Yes I know! Fryderyk Chopin, Kopernik, Marie Curie, Henryk Sienkiewicz, Marcin Gortat and of course the politicians.
Describe the places in Poland, that have a positive influence on you.
I love the old towns and the historical places. The sea is amazing too.
Tell us about the country you've always wanted to visit, but still haven't.
It' s so hard to choose one. China.
