“Day for Francophone Students” takes place at University of Economics, Prague /22. 3./

Every year, the “French Language Week” is held worldwide. Sixty-eight member, associate or observer states and governments of the International Organization of Francophonie (OIF), including the Czech Republic, are joining the common legacy of the French language. At VŠE, French plays an important role, and therefore we decided to offer French speaking students the opportunity to visit two interesting events within the “Day for Francophone Students”.
