Framework study plans

Study plans for the Czech Studies programme are divided into two basic modules so that students acquire and develop language competence and communication skills according to their level of knowledge of the Czech language (from complete beginner to very advanced). The schedules for the modules and syllabi are adapted during the semesters in order to meet the needs of our students.

Module for beginning and elementary students – A1 and A2  according to the CEFR

This module is intended for beginning and elementary students. The basis of instruction is a language course of grammar and conversation. Students also take other lessons geared especially to training pronunciation and acquiring basic knowledge of Czech spelling. In groups of beginners, lessons may be taught partially in English. The schedule is governed by the following study plan:

Course name Number of lessons per week
Language courses for beginners (grammar and conversation) 4

The aim of the module is to acquire the following:

  • A basic knowledge of grammar
  • The ability to communicate successfully in normal everyday situations
