Today, the Embassy got to host a group of students from the Warsaw gymnazjum named for Ignacy Jan Paderewski.  Chris Snipes talked about “the good, the bad, and the ugly” of TV in American culture; Andrew Hay presented on the U.S. education system and opportunities for Polish students at all levels; and Tom Zia gave some examples of U.S. multiculturalism.  We also learned from the students about their favorite Polish movies (Sami Swoi), the Polish food everyone should try (bigos!), and places visitors to Poland must see (Zakopane). 

We had a lot of questions about visas to the U.S. and about study opportunities.  For questions about visas, we encourage you to visit the consular pages of the U.S. Embassy website.  For those interested in study in the U.S., your first stop should be EducationUSA.  If you are seriously considering studying in the U.S., please get in touch with us and we will direct you to a qualified educational adviser.

To the students, we all really enjoyed meeting you, and hope we’ll have a chance to talk again!
