Personal comments
I used more the english language to communicate with the other erasmus students and with the teachers! I learned the basic of czech language to comunicate with the czech people because they didn't speak english very much. But i only know the basic things because the czech language is very complicated. Besides that it was a pleasure learn a different language.
