Today, Jan. 24, is International Education Day, a day that recognizes the importance of quality education worldwide in shaping a society’s future. But how does education in Czechia look for a child who speaks (or wants to learn) in two languages?

Bilingual education presents several opportunities for a child’s development in Czechia – though is not without its hurdles. A bilingual (or dvojjazyčný) education takes place in two languages – a foreign language and the mother tongue – where the emphasis is on developing the foreign language as well as the mother tongue.

For Czech parents who send their children to bilingual schools, the aim is to expose kids to an international-style education while also honing their Czech. Expats often seek out bilingual schools to immerse their children in the Czech language with necessary instruction in English.
