I’ve recently introduced you to a new Polish cultural site aimed at the English-speaking world, and here we have another one.
This time it’s all about the latest news.
thenews.pl is run by Poland’s equivalent of the BBC World Service, Polskie Radio dla Zagranicy. It’s published entirely in English and is mainly focused on Poland or Poland-related issues.
You can also listen to English-language bulletins there and the site also offers Polish press reviews translated into English.
If you are really into all things Polish, you’ll find their micro-site on the upcoming presidential election particularly useful.
I found the new site particularly useful during the recent floods. While the BBC and most British media outlets completely ignored the disaster (American and Middle Eastern news outlets seemed to be more interested), thenews.pl had regular updates on the situation.
And just out of curiosity: HOW MANY of you are actually interested in daily news about Poland in English and is the existence of such service justified? I’d love to read what you have to say.
