Young students of the University of Economics, Prague (VŠE) who love to meet new people a talk with them in some foreign language, who are willing to help with any situation when you need their help…
Because it is their hobby and they just like to have new friends, they are open minded nice people who want you to get to know the real Czech Republic :-). They also gain 10 points for the selection procedure for studying abroad for this help. So do not hesitate to use them as much as you can. In case you think your Buddy did not help as much as he or she should, please let know your Buddy System coordinator or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
All the stuff you can’t arrange by yourself. Imagine, you are looking for the toilet and there are signs in language you do not understand at all or you have lost your passport and there are no people in the office speaking English…Your buddy cannot help you with the courses. In this case please contact your office at the University of Economics, Prague.
They want to have a contact with some foreigner, practise their foreign language, learn something new about your country, about your life, make new friends, etc…
It happens very rarely but it is good to be prepared for the worst: have your dorm address with you and take a taxi. Contact Buddy System organization or your Buddy System coordinator immediately and we will help you out!
Talk with your Buddy first: tell him/her that you are not satisfied. If the situation does not improve, contact the Buddy System organization/Buddy System coordinator and we will try to make necessary arrangements (e.g. talk to your “disobedient” Buddy or arrange a new Buddy for you).
It happens that some people just do not connect. However, in life, you will often need to get on with people you do not like, for example at work. So try to see the things you appreciate about your Buddy and build up on them. It might actually just be cultural differences which you will overcome after a while!
