Default Hello and Witam

Greetings!
I'm new on this forum. Returning to teaching English after some time off.
Wish me luck restarting my business in Norwich! Hopefully I'll be adding some useful resourses too. I've already made good use of some great resourses I've found on this site.
Anyone want to learn beginner's Polish?
All the best
Martin

Hello Martin and welcome to the forums! This offer to learn Polish sound inviting, I'll definitely think of it. I'd also be very grateful if you'd put some pics of your beautiful town, for us who don't have the luck to live in England

Thanks Beatrix,
Norwich is indeed beautiful. I often wander around in awe of the place I live. So with pleasure I attach a few images of my city... All were taken with my phone so please forgive the lack of quality.


St.Peter Mancroft church. This lies right in the centre of our town.


One of two medieval gates leading to the 900+ year old cathedral.


Norwich castle, our Norman castle (also about as old as the cathedral), small but beautiful, towering over the market place.


A view from my kitchen window. Norwich has many many old medieval churches (I've heard there is a church for every Sunday of the year - and a pub for every day!!!! - I'm not sure how true this is). Not a very good picture of the church, but I like the sky.


Cow tower - built 14th century as part of the city's defenses (there was once a wall that surrounded the city - much of it still remains)

Click on the images below for a better view...

Here is a view of Norwich cathedral tower from my kitchen window...
(note - The shape of Norwich Cathedral tower is part of the logo for the insurance company NORWICH UNION - now called AVIVA.)

Finally, another one of the castle I took a couple of days ago.


Norwich English - Private English tutor in the centre of Norwich - my webpage(!) where there are a few more photos.Norwich Photos - Featured Images of Norwich, Norfolk - TripAdvisor - a page of many photos of Norwich (and Norfolk).
A gallery of photos of Norwich - I found this page on google.


ok, ok, that will do for now.
All the best
Martin

Martin, thanks for sharing pics with us fans of old English towns. I especially like the panoramic one taken from your kitchen window.
