Amazing Barmen

Not quite sure how or why, but every bartender I've met in Poznan (and I'm assuming the same would hold true for Warsaw) speaks English amazingly well. I know one guy who used to teach English and is now tending bar.

And this isn't your usual "What can I get you" or "Large beer" English. These folks can really carry on. Most have spent upwards of one year in the UK. Doesn't really motivate me to learn Polish.

I wonder if it's because all of us expats are out partying so much! Know your clientele, that's what I say.

Not being a degenerate alcoholic (anymore?), I wouldn't know about these things.
