Czech language for academic purpose
As part of the internationalisation process and promotion of bi(multi)lingualism at the UK, the course with 135 contact lessons offers the opportunity to achieve mastery of the basics of the language with a specific focus on students. Although students do not aspire to pass a general certified examination at A1 or A2 level (CCE), they can achieve proficiency at the borderline between these two levels and have this proficiency confirmed by a micro-certificate as a possible outcome of the language course. In multilingual Europe, they will be able to demonstrate a declared basic knowledge of another language.
In the Czech language course for students of Charles University for Erasmus+ students or self-payers with no or little knowledge of Czech, you will learn the basics of the Czech language. Individual lessons will lead you to develop and then improve all your language skills, i.e. speaking and writing (productive skills) as well as listening and reading (receptive skills). We will focus on pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary work. Classes are interactive, teachers provide regular feedback and students are continually tested to monitor their progress. Socio-cultural competences are an integral part of the course and are taught both in the classroom and outside of classroom events and excursions.
The participant is a UK student in the Erasmus+ programme or a self-payer with no or minimal previous knowledge of Czech. They must not be a native speakers of Czech.
