Czech expats meet in Prague for conference on maintaining their native language skills

09-09-2014

Czech expats from around the world will gather in Prague on Wednesday for a two-day conference on maintaining their native language skills abroad. Expat communities abroad have a strong tradition in maintaining their cultural and linguistic heritage and the Czech language is taught at a network of Czech Schools without Borders, the first of which were established in the 1930s. The two-day event, held at the National Museum building in the center of Prague, was co-organized by expats’ associations, the Czech Foreign Ministry and Czech Radio.
