Mastering the English language is crucial for career advancement in any profession. Proficiency in English opens up new opportunities and unveils areas that would otherwise remain inaccessible. It also allows individuals to connect with people from around the world, forge new friendships, and broaden their horizons. From a broader perspective, the Czech Republic requires skilled professionals who can extend their reach abroad and create business opportunities outside the country. While everyone may feel at home in the Czech Republic, being fluent in English means feeling at home anywhere in the world. I wish the graduates of English programs supported by this foundation great success in their lives and careers.
