    I'm moving to Brno in September for a year, and wondered how anyone who has moved there is getting on.. I dont speak Czech (yet :shock: ) but will have to learn. I already speak fairly fluent french. I'm a fine art student in Leeds, UK and doing a study abroad year at the uni-tech of Brno, so am on the lookout for housemates..!
    Is anyone doing the same/similar? any advice?!

    That's me in a nutshell!

    love from Kirstie x

    Thanks Julz - nice to meet you! I dont suppose you are doing an EILC course in September are you? its like an intensive language course, and Ive applied to one in Prague so that I can spend some time there before moving to Brno.. My friend is doing the same as I, so we're going to explore the land! Hey good luck with everything, its a bit daunting, and I cant actually beleive that im going. It doesnt seem real yet - Brno is actually twinned with Leeds where i live in the UK, and ive met the art tutors I'll be learning with, so im really lucky - Ive been told not to learn czech, as everyone speaks English, but im going to try to anyway.

    Take it easy, hey ta for replying!

    Just learn the language, believe me, you will need it. Most the time you will not understand the "Czech English". :lol:

    Dude, ta, I really needed to hear that, it'll really spur me on. I take it you have experienced the difficulties! I do speak French fairly fluently, and I've heard that some people do speak French... (shrug) I'll just wait and see i guess! :?
