Jarda first joined us in 2019, as an intern when studying North-American Cultural Studies at Masaryk University. Since then, he never truly left; helping us with accompanying expats to public offices or translating at doctor appointments. However, his main job for a couple of years was teaching English (and a bit of French). In 2022 though, he joined our team properly, as a consultant.

Jarda loves travelling because he loves exploring different cultures and languages. One cannot be understood properly without the other, he says. He’s excited about joining the Expat Centre because as a consultant to foreigners, he’ll meet a range of cultures every day in the office. Also, he’s one of the rare original Brno natives – born and bred here, he enjoys helping others get to know his home city.
