    Thanks for sharing.
    Do you need to speak the Chec language?
    Do they offer classes for English speaking students who don't speak Chec?
    I will log in some time tomorrow to check.
    Actually I found the link to their classes in English

    I am sure you do not need to speak Czech to study there, at least not if you're a Ph.D. student. It's different at undergraduate and Master's levels, but Czech universities are well known here in Germany to allow Ph.D. students to study in English, or in some cases even in German. (The German language was frequently used as an alternative language for doctoral dissertations at Czech universities until WW2. There was a significant German speaking minority in the country back then, especialy in the cities.)

    Indeed. And good beer, too. That always happens where there are three or more German-speakers. It's how we got Pilsner. And how China got Tsing Tao, which is sold pretty well everywhere.

    Well... both, of course. And point two is the reason why there are so few German speakers left in all those European countries east of Germany. By the way, the relatively unknown International Students' Day is directly connected to that part of history . see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intern...tudents%27_Day

    Very true. And should not be forgotten, or made light of. I'm sorry if anything I said (or didn't) tended to minimize or trivialize the Nazi atrocities against Czech universities in 1939. Not intended.

    The beer, however, dates to a much different era. The City of Pilsen began brewing beer in 1295. Everything was reasonably fine until 1838, when citizens protested by dumping barrels, as the quality of the top-fermented beer varied widely. So a city brewery was founded to brew beer in the new Bavarian style. And it worked... That brewery is now Pilsner Urquell. If my very rusty school-German serves, I think Urquell is "original source."

    To be clear, mine was just a flip comment and not meant as criticism.

    I might be wrong, but one could have mistaken the Kingdom of Bohemia for yet another German entity up until late 18th century. At least in the cities. Then came the Spring of Nations and it became Czechoslovakia and then, of course, WWII after which Germans were no longer welcome.
