“It was great that Michael Kahn, the lead trainer of this course, helped finding stories before the course started. If you already find an angle before going on assignment you can finish your story during your stay in Prague - I thought that was really cool.”
~ Noëlle Karpf, Radio 32, Going on Assignment in Prague 2017 Alumna.
“Definitely will come back for another course, had such a great time and learned so much. The course was amazing! I did benefit a great deal and also learned a lot about foreign journalism. In addition, I really liked the combination of a course in the morning and working on the field in the afternoon. Definitely would recommend this course to everybody who is interested in journalism or who is already working as a journalist. Thank you for this experience!”
~ Claire Micallef, Radio X, Going on Assignment in Prague 2017 Alumna.
“This course allowed me to step out of my comfort zone and really use my communication skills to try and get an interview. For some, this is a simple task. But, when you're in a country where English is harder to come by, it really makes for a hardworking attitude. This course really helped me possess new reporting skills.”
~ Jake Albright, School of Journalism and Electronic Media, The University of Tennessee
“I've been bringing my journalism students to TOL's foreign correspondent course program for years. The quality of the trainers, the friendliness of the TOL staff and the beauty of the city make the experience a highlight of their studies.”
