Example text

Additionally the trams would come and go every ten minutes or so bringing in a fresh crowd of potential clients. The two most typical ways private EFL teachers advertise their services are through the paper and flyers mentioned. Even university students of English philology sometimes paste notices to tutor privately. In Poznan students advertised on flyers spread throughout the area around Adam Mickiewicz University. They were fairly well represented among adverts from postgraduates and native speakers alike at the tram and bus stops before the city started cracking down on advertising in “illegal” areas.

Before these locations merely had a label (and code) with the words: “Zakaz Wywieszania Reklam” which roughly translates to: Pasting of Advertisements Forbidden. These signs were frequently ignored and groups of workers (probably from public transportation) were sent to strip the flyers off and clean the glass surfaces several times a week late at night. After that time many of those advertising had opted to take a safer route and use the typical concrete or metal traffic and street light posts.

Although with major technical emergencies like malfunctioning breaks that need one car to be unattached, power lines breaking, or traffic conditions causing a train to wait on a side track, delays can be unusually long. On one trip from Czechowice to Krakow via Katowice - which should have taken 2 hours 40 min – once took three and a half hours when all three of the above occurred. Then without tram connection from Krakow Glowny to my neighborhood after 1:30am added another hour to my trip. Having to wait until 4:00 in the morning to catch some Z’s was a real bummer.
