Language Exchanges in Brno

After I kinda settled down in Brno again, I started to observe a feeling, that I miss an international atmosphere, multiculture meet-ups and its spirit. So I begun to be interested in how I can do something for it in Brno. Something that would be my activity in my leasure time, would bring the international people together, have a fun and have a feeling eventeually, that people benefit from taking part in it.

Eevntually I came up with an idea to hold the Language exchanges on regular basis - once a month. What does it actually mean? Well, there are many internationals here in Brno who´d like to practise not only the czech language, but also either to speak their mother language or also to learn/improve new ones. Of course, you might  say there are plenty of language schools and institues. Sure, but this meetings are completely for free and, most importantly, they are totally natural. You aren´t sitting in the class and learning grammar according to the textbook or whatever the lector brings for you. You simply come to this meeting, stick the flag(s) on your t-shirt referring to the language you wanna practise, mix with other people and start talking. English is always the base for everyone, though. You really don´t have to be shy. Nobody points out your mistakes, nobody checks your pronunciation. You just freely communicate and natually eliminate your shyness and fear of doing mistakes. Pleasnant benefit it to build friendly relationships and to meet new people.

The events are held in part Lužánky in spring/summer and in Chillárna(pub) in autumn/winter.

As for me, I am happy to hold these events for the people. It makes me feel good to see they´re having fun and improving their both language and social skills. It´s the best feedback, when people come to me during the event from time to time and thank me for the this opportunity to meet new people and practise languages in such a natural atmosphere. Not only do they practise the languages, but also they might get their range of knowledge wider as they may have the same problems and go through the same issues and challenges. Simply put, they all have something in common and, thus, can only benefit from each other.

So, do not be shy and let´s meet in another session!
