The course in Czech for foreigners is aimed at the university students’ needs for mastering written and spoken language with the basic inventory of linguistic structures needed for making oneself understood in common situations of everyday practical life; advanced students develop the ability of independent work with a simple technical text.

This course accents the communicative approach to language teaching. Therefore, individual lessons are primarily centred around an underlying topic that is complemented by the communicative language function. Further appropriate language aspects (i.e. grammar, lexis, pronunciation, skills) arise from the given communicative need.

Basic communication in common situations is further enriched by communicative skills in a more specific university environment.

The course is intended for PhD students, but is not compulsory, it is completed by passing an examination.

The Czech course is intended for students, who have already gained a solid basic knowledge in the Czech language, i.e. they are at B1+ level.
