Brno, Nov 24 (BD) – Nowadays, 29,171 foreigners from more than 150 countries are living in the Brno-City district (Brno-město).
Some individuals have an easier time adjusting than others, but relocation is difficult for many people, and relocation counseling can be quite helpful in the process.
Non-EU nationals are invited to participate in the free public integration course “Welcome to the CZ” on Dec 2, at 9am-5pm in the community center for foreigners at Mezírka 1.
The integration course conveys information about housing, residence legislation, employment, or Czech healthcare and educational system. “Attending the official integration course is the best opportunity for foreigners to gain essential immigration information, and it’s free of charge,” PR Manager of the course Filip Davydov says.
“I really liked the course. I felt like surrounded by people I have already met, like with friends. It was completely worth making the sacrifice of waking up early on Saturday. For sure, I would attend any other course given there.” – a course participant
The course is held in English. Most lecturers are qualified social workers and lawyers who provide reliable and relevant information in compliance with the Czech legislation.
“Nothing more to add, apart from a big thank you from the bottom of my heart. We need more people like you guys in the entire world. People able to help, to share their knowledge, to make other people smile! Keep up going like that, muchas gracias!” – a course participant
