Dancing workshop, vol.2
There is a long-lasting tradition of ballroom dancing in the Czech Republic. Many young people take ballroom dancing classes and there are plenty of events where people of all ages come to dance. We will teach you a couple of typical ballroom dances, perhaps not so known abroad. Come on Wednesday, 29 March at 18:45 to the room B305 in the Masarykova dormitory (next to the ISC Point) and get to know this particular Czech tradition!
What you need:
- Comfortable clothes and shoes – there is no special dress code
- Bottle of water – recommended
- Come on time! 🙂
What you don't need:
- Previous experience – this workshop is for absolute beginners
- Dancing partner – we will be changing dancing partners throughout the workshop
No registration is needed & the event is for free. 🙂
We're looking forward to dancing with you!
Are you dissatisfied that your professors don't appreciate your knowledge of random trivia? Would you like to show your frenemies that you and your friends are clearly superior? Do you like boats?
If you answered yes to any of the above, then you must come to our Pub quiz (if not, come either way!) It will take place at one of our favourite venues, Loď pivovar, a boat on Vltava which is also a brewery. We have booked an entire floor with a capacity of around 80 people and we have prepared a quiz for you that will test your knowledge to the extreme!
Create a team of up to 8 people, bring your friends and buddies and come and join us!
Please, register yourself or your entire team by filling out the registration form below.
Cimrman English Theatre
Do you want to learn more about Czech culture and sense of humour? Then you should definitely see one of the theatre plays about Jára Cimrman!
Wait, wait… Who is Jára Cimrman again?
Jára Cimrman (Czech pronunciation: [ˈjaːra ˈtsɪmr̩man]), also known as "the Master", is a Czech polymath and universal genius, and one of the greatest Czech playwrights, poets, composers, teachers, travellers, philosophers, inventors, detectives, mathematicians, and sportsmen of the 19th and early 20th century.
He is widely known among Czech people (and was elected as the most important person of Czech history back in 2005). The only problem is... he is not real at all. 😉 But the theatre plays about his life are real (and fun) and Czech people love them. We hope you will like it too!
So what is this event about?
We will visit the Cimrman English Theatre and see a play named “The Act”. It is given in English by English actors living in Prague (with English subtitles for better understanding).
The number of seats in the theatre is limited (most of them are already sold out, because it is very popular among people), so don't wait! We will buy tickets only to those who will register and pay for the event in advance. The price is 125 CZK for students (250 CZK full price), there are around 20 seats left.

See what past exchange students said about us
I have a lot of good memories of the Czech Technical University (CTU), but the first thing I have to emphasize is the International Student Club (ISC). Due to the nice and friendly atmosphere I could feel since the beginning.
I decided to help them with the organization of some activities like the orientation week, language meetings, sport events or trips. I’ve also been teaching my Spanish language to other students!
It has been an unbelievable experience for me that I recommend to every Erasmus student for sure!

Joining ISC CTU in Prague allowed me many things. At the beginning of the semester, it helped me with getting to know new people from all over the world. I started learning German (with a very nice teacher) in the Masarykova dormitory, I discovered lots of new places in Prague by attending the Café Lingea meetings, where my language skills were tested, and I learned to play voleyball.
I still keep many friends who I have visited/hosted after my Erasmus. That's one of the things I am most proud of – to be able to keep these friendships through time.
My advice for those starting an Erasmus is clear: Join ISC as soon as you get there, you won't regret it.
