The studies didn't only meet my expectations but exceeded them. The instructors were awesome! I mean I came from a background of reading and pouring out without understanding in depth.

I enjoyed our student nights at the popular Dydy Baba then, going to watch basketball and ice hockey since Pardubice was known for that and the countless weekend trips to other countries and cities. I mean so much culture in the Czech Republic to explore and see that its never boring
