According to Daniela Vrabcová, Vice-dean for the international relations of the Faculty of Education UHK “this meeting with the ambassador confirms the common interest in strengthening and developing Czech-German relations”. The focus was not only on teaching German in Czech schools but also teaching Czech in German universities but also on the offer of studies accredited in English.

In his opinion, the number of German companies operating in the Czech Republic is increasing and they are particularly interested in employees who speak German. The ambassador also looks forward to starting online teaching for international students and teaching Czech with intermediate German. As soon as the pandemic restrictions ease he would like to meet the students at the German Embassy in Prague.
