In the Czech as a Foreign Language A1/1 level course, emphasis is placed on communication skills from the very beginning of the course. The lessons are purely practical and should help students to understand and speak in basic communication situations such as: getting to know each other, finding their way around a city or building, shopping, ordering in a restaurant, making an appointment, etc. Although the Czech grammar is very simplified, students will learn the paradigm of the Czech case system, typical prepositions and their situational use.

The course consists of 24 lessons, which take place twice a week throughout the semester. One lesson lasts 80 minutes, the remaining 40 minutes are spent on self-study. It is essential to attend both lessons per week.

The price of the course is 4800 Czech crowns. Students enrolled in a Bachelor's or Master's programme do not pay for the course directly at the cash desk, as Erasmus or PhD students do, but through interfaculty financial settlement.

If a student fails to attend the first two classes of the semester without excuse, his/her place will be taken by active students on the waiting list.

Teaching methods

Our main aim is communication in Czech from the beginning, students work in groups or couples and speak only Czech. During some lessons (Shopping, Orientation) students go to streets to prove their skills. Teachers are always very supportive, they create a kind atmosphere during sessions and try to overcome any difficulty. During lessons are used gestures, games, pictures, videos.
