Why is Connect different?
Connect is a boutique language school located in the heart of downtown Toronto. There are no blackboards at Connect! Each student has his/her own tablet, which they use to create movies, podcasts, and blogs. Classes at Connect are very interactive and fun. Furthermore, Connect creates their own textbooks in an organic and collaborative way.
Brno, located in the southern region of Czech Republic, is considered to be the cultural hub of the country and is also the second-largest city of Czech republic – after Prague. Being a city of more than thousand years old, Brno holds an important value in Czech Republic’s artistic heritage. Furthermore, there are many educational institutes present in this part of the country. Therefore, a large number of people speak English in Brno. Another good thing about approaching Brno is that it is a major rail junction of the country, and every train passes through Brno, so you can approach this beautiful city by every means – car, train, and plane. Brno is situated in a basin of the Svratka and Svitava rivers, which is encircled by wooded mountains from three sides. Weather environments are enjoyable for visiting tourists and locals as well. The region of Brno has an excellent innate flow of air, which makes for extremely high quality air.
