Frequently asked questions

Where are you based?

I currently live in Prague, CZ. But, I grew up in Connecticut, US and I also took a 6 month break from Prague to live in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

What university do you attend?

Anglo-American University!

Do I have to speak another laguage to move abroad?

Nope! I, along with many of my native English speaker friends, are monoligual and are able to live abroad without much trouble. It's definitly best to learn as much of the language of your host country as possible, but don't restrict yourself to only English speaking countries if you're looking to move abroad. English is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world! Chances are, no matter what country you're in, English will suffice.

How do I make friends abroad?

Just like how you would make friends any where else in the world! Most of my friends are from my Uni (just like if I had gone to an American University!). But, I also have made friends through mutuals that go to other unis since Prague is has such a large student population. And, I am friends with my coworkers and I've met people through them as well! Meeting other English speakers abroad isn't as rare as you would expect (I'm currently in a cafe on the outskirts of Prague and the people at the table next to me are all speaking English).

Does your university teach in English?

Yes! And, proof of fluency in English is a requirement to be accepted.

Can I get a job abroad?

Yes! Student visas usually allow students to work part time while studying.
