Fall 2016, Issue I
Welcome Communication, New Media and Journalism Program in Prague!
We have twenty-four new students who arrived from universities from all over the US to study abroad in Prague in Fall 2016. CNMJ students and six Czech students from the Charles University enjoyed fancy dinner and sunny cruise on Vltava River after first day of orientation. Charles University students so called „buddies“ live with US students and help them better immerse into the Czech culture.
Czech students presented various extracurricular activities they prepared for the students this semester during CIEE EXPO. The activities include cooking classes, sport activities, visiting local museums and monuments, sport events, etc.
All students learned how to blend in as much as possible by learning basic Czech phrases. Most of the students learned how to say: „Dobrý den, jsem tady na pohovor“ (Hello, I am here for an interview) in Czech to impress the company they may end up working for. While being in a foreign country all CNMJ students have to do internships in local companies to complement their learning about Czech business and international work environment.
CIEE organized first meet up event to allow students from other CIEE programs to meet and get to know each other. Bowling is popular in the Czech Republic and our students enjoyed the game as well.
