A Welcome from Dr Libor Štěpánek, the Masaryk University Language Centre Director
Welcome to English for University Studies Summer School which offers you a fully engaging language development experience at Masaryk University. The course is carefully structured to give you a unique learning and study experience of an English Summer School in the Centre of Brno. A group of international and Masaryk University lecturers will provide you with an opportunity to develop basic academic and study skills in English at the level considered to be sufficient for university studies. Those twenty days will help you to get practical insight into how to use English in diverse academic settings; more specifically, how to read academic texts and use them in writing and speaking, how to listen critically to lectures and how to improve your English grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation.
Your days will consist of stimulating and informative theoretical input which will be combined with interactive and highly practical tasks and activities. In three distinct sessions each day, you will have a chance to interact, discuss, practise and reflect on your English language study skills with your peers. You may also discover and explore new areas of academic skills in English which you have perhaps not had the chance to notice before.
