The International School of Brno is an institution that provides students from kindergarten to grade 10 (and soon 11th and 12th) from all over the world with the education and skills to be committed, lifelong, and successful learners.

My decision to come in Czech Republic was a last minute decision. I’m supposed to be in the UK right now. Indeed, few months ago, I was looking for an internship abroad and all know how it is difficult to find a company that will suit you and will accept to take you for just 5 months. I never thought about coming here because it didn’t really attracted before. But when I’ve been the opportunity to come here, I did have a moment of hesitation. So I made some research before saying anything talk with one of my friends that lived in Prague during a few months. I have been given the answers that I needed to take my decision.
Last week, I attended my first MeetUp ! The event took place in a restaurant in the city center of Brno.

The Meet Ups are monthly events organized by BrnoExpats.com and Foreigners.cz. It’s when expats who are working, studying, and living in the Czech Republic meet up once a month to catch up, network, meet new people, and share a few laughs over a few beers.
