The students can choose from two courses:
1) This course, which is offered in English
2) Makroekonomie I (http://ies.fsv.cuni.cz/en/syllab/JEB009), which is taughted by Dr. Hlavacek in Czech.
Clearly, students, which do not speak Czech should enroll for our course and the students speaking Czech can freely decide, which course they choose. However, note that the students have to make their decision within the first 2 weeks of semester and register in the SIS. Once they choose English or Czech version of the course, they are recommended to stick to their choice in the following semester, too.
