Recommendations of teachers active on social media:

Where can you find volunteers who offer tutoring children?

  1. Facebook group “Dobro v době korony JMK” – mostly in Czech. If you need to find a volunteer teacher for your children, use the hashtag #ddoucovani
  2. pomocdodomu.cz – website with volunteers from the Czech Republic
  3. Are you looking for a tutor for your children? Do you need to prepare for the entrance exam or the school-leaving exam?

    Students – volunteers from MU are ready to tutor foreign students. You can communicate with them in English and Russian.

    Just visit the website munipomaha.cz, click on the button “I need help as an individual or as an institution” and register through the online form.

    The form is available in Czech and English. If you speak Russian and need help with filling in the form, contact our colleague Ljuba Klok (phone no.: +420 727 942 355).

We will let you know about the newest information and tips.

Be safe!

MOVING!

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

The Centre for Foreigners JMK will be closed for visits from 15.12 until 19.12. If you will need to contact our infocentre during these days, you can write to cizincijmk@jmk.cz or call +420 734 510 213.

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.

Our infocentre will be at the new address Kounicova 13 from 20.12. It will only take you 3 additional minutes to get there.
