Recent Testimonials

JillianStudy in France

I realized once I got back that I learned more than I thought I did—not that I didn’t think I learned a lot, already. Three of my goals were to make more international friends (check), amp up my French comprehension (check), and expand my worldview (check).

EdenStudy in Spain

Honestly it was the best semester I’ve ever had. I met so many people and learned so many things. I found a new love for a different country. I would definitely recommend World Endeavors to anyone who wants a life-changing experience!

JenniferStudy in Spain

My advisor at World Endeavors was absolutely excellent! Her expertise and delightful people skills were exactly what sealed the deal, making World Endeavors my final decision for study abroad.”

AliciaStudy in Thailand

I have to say that what I remember, as much as the delicious colors and flavors of Thailand, are the people I crossed paths with – the other students who became such good friends, and the local Thais who showed me such kindness. And of course the food. I still dream of the food.”

HeatherStudy in England

It was amazing to be able to say I traveled to six countries in one semester.

KristenIntern in Morocco

It was amazing! Don’t be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone - the spontaneous adventures are gold!

Czech Republic Study Abroad FAQs

Are the courses in Czech Republic taught in English?

Yes, there is a wide choice of study programmes and courses taught in English.

Do most people in Czech Republic speak/understand English?

In the major cities like Prague and Brno, most locals will be able to understand and respond in English, but if you venture into the outlying areas and smaller towns, you’ll find that most locals there don’t speak English. (All the more reason to learn a smattering of Czech!)

Will there be other World Endeavours participants at my destination?

Depending on the program you choose and the time of year you participate, you will most likely meet other WE participants while abroad, although in some cases, you may be the only WE participant for part or all of your program. Summer projects in popular destinations make it very likely that you will have several other WE participants at your site. We seek to offer programs that are culturally immersive, and we have designed them to offer multiple opportunities for you to meet locals as well as other visitors. If you wish to engage in a program where you will be with other WE participants or if you would prefer a more culturally immersive setting, contact our staff with your questions, and we will do our best to accommodate.
