The Czech Republic is known as the crossroads of Europe and during your year or semester abroad there you’ll get to experience so much of what this unique culture has to offer. By attending a local school, you’ll be totally immersed in the Czech language and get the chance to meet lots of new people. At home with your host family you’ll be able to experience day to day life in a completely new environment.
Things to know
Meat is a big part of the Czech diet, but vegetarianism is also pretty widely accepted. Modesty is an important value in Czech culture. For example, a proper response to a compliment is not to say thank you but to actually disagree. Always remember to take your shoes off when you go into a Czech home.
School Yearlong Program offers you a great opportunity to live and study in another country for a period of up to 11 months. This program will suit you if you really want to live with a host family, learn a new language and feel a part of a local community.
