Czech Language Courses

At the Faculty of Humanities, we offer semester Czech language courses to both the exchange students and degree students of the Faculty of Humanities enrolled in a study programme in a foreign language.

  • Czech Language Course for Beginners (course code: YBJ092)

Number of ECTS credits: 4 ECTS

Course Description:

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 thcore purpose of the learning process.
