Language:So suprise, suprise: the language spoken everywhere is Czech, with somevariations of Slovak, which will all sound the same to you anyway =)However, the language is not a barrier in Czech Republic. Since Prague is arelatively large and multi-cultural city with a heavy influx of tourists.Czech MC has a culture of taking internationals onto the MC.Due to this reason, everyone on the MC is aware of, and open to, communicationin English.Conferences, meetings and visits are all held in English. All the members ofAIESEC in the Czech Republic are accustomed to having an international MCmember around, which makes it relatively easier for the international to adapt.
