Students will be provided with study materials before their arrival. Please start studying Czech soon! Go through the materials you will receive and try to learn the basics. Learning Czech is the key to a rewarding experience in our country. It will help you a lot once you arrive. To say a few basic words in Czech will make a very good impression on the family and also at school! Once you come to the Czech Republic, you will receive another study book, which you can use during your whole stay. Don’t hesitate to ask your host family for help when you need it! They will be very glad that you are interested in our language and that you are making an effort to learn. It is the first and most important thing the people around you will appreciate as a sign that you try to be a part of the Czech community. For non-English speakers, we also strongly recommend learning English before departure to be sure you can communicate with everyone until you can express yourself in Czech.
