Learning the language of the society you live in is of the utmost importance for any successful integration. Czech is not the easiest language to learn but it is possible – many foreigners have mastered Czech on a conversational level sooner or later.
When working with an international crowd, one does not need Czech during office hours – but going out, shopping, visiting a doctor, taking part in a public life and making friends requires to learn some.
Some workplaces offer language courses for their employees. Ask your boss if there is such option at your company. If not, you can also take advantage of free Czech lessons organized at the Centre for Integration of Foreigners. There are also plenty of language schools offering Czech courses – short and intensive, or semester-long and slowly-paced; beginner or advanced, group or individual.
A group semester-long course costs somewhere around three thousand Czech crowns. In addition to language courses in a classroom, you may join a language group to practice your skills during informal meetings or exchange languages during tandem learning.
