Czech for Foreigners

Individual courses can be organised for any level, the curriculum tailored to the needs of the customer of any nationality, requiring to master at least the basics of the Czech language for communication.

Aside from tuition in the language itself, students gain valuable information concerning life in the Czech Republic, with particular emphasis on the practicalities of everyday life.

The course concentrates on the basics of the language and the essentials of communication. Speaking and listening skills, reading and the basics of writing are covered. Formal grammar is dealt with only where necessary. In teaching we use the Communicative Czech series of textbooks, augmented with our own materials.

Teaching is of course undertaken by native-speakers of the language with university education in the relative fields as well as additional training in communicative methodology.

Among the themes covered are:

  • jen si tak popovídat: talking about ourselves, work, hobbies, etc.
  • jak nakupovat: food and shopping, pharmacies, etc.
  • komunikace: telephoning, how to deal with the post office
