Every year, Intenational Fair EXPOLINGUA offers to more than 5000 visitors the unique opportunity to gain information about programmes, services and products relating to foreign languages,education and culture.

The demand for language learning in the Czech Republic is growing in consequence of increasing number of students who are interested in studies abroad. In the past four years, the number of students who participated in European programmes has more than tripled. The increasing interest in language learning is connected with requirements of the Czech employment market. Knowledge of at least one foreign language is a necessity. More and more Czechs are also studying languages only for pleasure and tourism.
