FCUM - Chopin University draws Koreans/Japs students to Poland

http://www.chopin.edu.pl/angielskie/

They are about 40 Korean/Japanese music students in Warsaw and more in other cities, notably Krakow.

Would you believe for a long time I didn't know Chopin was Polish?

Fryderyk Chopin University of Music - somehow the acronym of FCUM seems unflattering. Good thing they included his forename ...

Wasn't he French?

What, you mean like Marie Curie?

Just joking! She was totally Polish.

Chopin's dad was a French teacher in Poland and FC was born and brought up in Poland before becoming a political exile in France. So he probably thought of himself more as a Pole, especially as they didn't have satellite TV to help out like I do.
