I have been living in Brno for 7 years and I became a client of the Center in my very first year. I would like to thank you for your work. The Center’s assistance is quite essential for us, foreigners. Special thanks to Mrs. Ljubov, who always answers all of my questions and helps by her acts and advice. Everyone at the Center always tries to answers my questions and help me in any situation. I would like to thank all of the Center’s employees for their professional help and support. Your work is extremely needed and beneficial for foreigners looking for support. The legal and social counselling and the lectures are extremely professional.  We are like one big family and it is you who deserve the credit for this!

Tetiana Ishchenko

A big thanks to the Center not only for your work, but also for a perfectly organized tenth anniversary celebration. It was fun and the time flew by. Congratulations on your anniversary.  Keep up the great work!

I studied Czech in Eliška’s course. She is confident, professional and always found a way to answer any question and react to any situation.  Her standards of multicultural and intercultural education are high. Her methodology is fantastic. clear and very beneficial for beginners. I was extremely satisfied with the course. I am very grateful to the Center for providing this course and I am looking forward to the next one.

Great support in studying Czech and interesting trips. We got to know the Czech culture and many people! Many thanks to the Center for Foreigners of the SMR.

Ivan Rankič

I am very happy that I could attend the Czech courses at the Center. I attended courses at various levels and the lecturers were very interesting. I learned about the Center from a friend of mine who also attended courses here. I would like to particularly thank Radim; through him I got to know other Czech lecturers at Vysočina. If I was to describe it in just one word, the word would be – THE BEST. I wish you much success. Thanks to you, foreigners feel at home in Brno!

Marija Radojičič

You are the best! I learned about the Center from my friends and then I attended Czech courses at various levels. I met people from various countries and my Czech has improved. The willingness and approach of the lecturers were always perfect. My greetings to the best lecturers, Radim and Diana.

Marina Stefaniani

Excellent Center! It helps to everyone who was “foreign” at the beginning. It quickly transforms them into people who feel as if they were born here.  The Center gives the best and nicest of what Czech culture has to offer.

Eva Svobodová

I worked at the Center as a volunteer. I must give credit to the excellent organizational team and modern facilities in the center of Brno. It was my pleasure to work with you, thanks for a great experience!

Julie Hančíková

I felt welcome at the Center for Foreigners and it enriched me. Thanks to the courses and lessons I felt a growing confidence regarding my knowledge of Czech language, and my knowledge of Czech culture grew deeper; I have also met people from all over the world.  

Svitlana Denysova

Thanks to the Center and a special big thank you to Mrs. Ljubov Klok for her support, help in studying the language and assistance with official documents for uniting the family.  Thanks to you, our family is back together! You have excellent teachers of Czech, such as Simona and Petr. Your work is very important for anyone who takes their first steps in the Czech Republic.  We wish you prosperity and development!

Nikita

Excellent Center for the support of foreigners, brilliant and kindhearted people; they helped us a lot. Thank you!

Julija Dajanova

I am thankful to the employees of this wonderful Center for their assistance! We moved to the Czech Republic in the middle of the school year with our child and we had no idea of what to do or where to go. I went to the Center and Mrs. Ljubov helped us to enroll our child in school. She answered all of my questions and was very kind. I instantly lost any fear of settling in a new country. I study Czech now and my daughter attends courses for children.  It is excellent that all of the services are for free! I also really enjoyed the lecture “Welcome to the Czech Republic”, where I learned a huge amount of useful information. There is friendly atmosphere in the Center, and that’s great! I want to thank you for the fact that there is a place where a foreigner can come without any fear and receive answers to almost any question, because support is crucial in the difficult period of moving to a different country!

Yury Zvizdaruk

In 2016 I began to attend Czech courses at the Center.  They were recommended by a friend. Thanks to the pleasant teachers who like to teach us in the form of games, we immersed ourselves in the difficult Czech language. In addition to teaching Czech, the Center has many other activities.  I myself taught meditation here as part of the community activities. I am glad that everything is free for us.  

Elvira Likhtina

I would love to thank you for all the work at the Centre for Foreigners in Brno. Your work and help with the integration is priceless.

Lilija Stupnikova

Our first steps in the Czech Republic were simpler thanks to you. Thank you for resolving all of the problems I came to you with and for the Czech language course. Your work is extremely beneficial and important. A big thank you also goes to Ljuba, our guardian angel and faithful friend!

MOVING!

Part of the services of our centre will move to a new address during December.

The Adaptation-integration courses of 16.12 will take place without change at our former address.

If your Czech language course would change addresses, you will get information from your teacher.

Legal and social consultations will not be available from 15.12.2022 until 16.1.2023 in the offices at Mezírka 1, but in offices of our partners OPU and Diecézní Charita Brno. We will inform you of the place of consultation when you reserve a meeting.
