Blokowisko

Dear Pen Pal,

My name is Slavko. I am eleven years old and I live in Eastern Europe. My English teacher told me to write to you and tell you about my home. For some time now, there is no more Russian in schools, but English. In the student's book, there were a lot of useless expressions like tiles or local community. I had to look up in the dictionary to see how to say blokowisko in English. I found: “residential district consisting of large blocks of flats.” Mom said she wasn't sure that was it and maybe you don't have such a word.

Unfortunately, despite having had similar experiences to Middle Easterners, Berlin-based Poles do not show much empathy towards the newcomers.
