The programme is particularly designed for the international students from American and Canadian universities;
the American and Canadian students enrolled in the UPCES participate in the whole programme, while the degree students (both Czech and international ones) as well as the international exchange students of the Faculty of Humanities are welcome to select single courses from
the course offerings of this programme.
The overall number of FHS UPCES courses to be enrolled in might be limited to the maximum of 2 (3) courses per semester
depending on course capacity (the FHS Erasmus and other non-degree students).

On the other hand for the FHS degree students (both Czech and international ones) can attend these courses from the second semester
of their studies onwards and the overall number of UPCES courses to be enrolled is limited to the maximum of 2 courses per semester.

Czech Language Course (for beginners)
The course targets students that are staying in the Czech Republic for a limited period of time and need to cover the basis of the language in order to communicate in everyday situations.
The ultimate aim is to provide the students with basic skills, grammar and vocabulary to deal with the life in the Czech Republic, to give them an idea of the Czech language system as well as Czech culture.
The instruction uses communicational method of teaching: the material is based on situations the students face, not grammatical overview of the language, with emphasis on both receptive and productive language skills (reading, listening, speaking and writing). This however does not mean that we would neglect, ignore nor reject grammar! Grammar is used functionally, as a tool to reach communicational competencies but not the core purpose of the learning process.
schedule: twice a week (2 x 90 min), JINONICE
Czech Language Course is preferably for international students of the Faculty of Humanities.
There is no entrance exam or fee, but students are required to buy a course book.
