From 11 July to 5 August a group of 26 Ukrainian refugees participated in a 4-week intensive Czech language course offered by the University of Pardubice Language Centre, supported by the Pardubický Kraj and Úřad Práce. The lessons aimed to help them navigate daily life in the Czech Republic, and covered vocabulary around topics such as employment and jobs, accommodation and renting a house, holidays and buying tickets, daily chores, appearance, clothes, and famous people from Pardubice and Czechia.
On the last day of the course, doc. Mgr. Pavel Panoch, Ph.D., Vice-Rector for Education and Quality of the University, joined the Language Centre staff for a small “graduation” ceremony, where the participants received a certificate of completion. The participants expressed their appreciation for the supportive and positive atmosphere of the lessons.
