And even more fortunate are the ones of us living in Brno, as this city offers so many opportunities to learn even if your ‘academic’ Czech got stuck at the jedno-pivo-prosím level and your official (oh-so-sweet) school days are already over. You can always enrol and become a regular university student (again/for the first time), but that’s not your only option to access the courses universities offer – some of them are open to the general public, and some of their courses are even in English. You can easily broaden your language portfolio – or make it your career – through the broaden scope of language schools and training programmes to become a certified teacher. You can also improve your IT, public speaking and leadership skills, or get career advice if you’re a bit lost. Read our tips in full on our blog.
