The online course will enable students to learn Czech even during the COVID-19 pandemic and is specifically intended for students with difficulties in travelling and or staying in the Czech Republic during the period of the course and for those whose visa was delayed or momentarily refused but who still want to learn Czech. This version of the course offers the chance to save on accommodation and travel costs as your physical presence is not required.
The course is intended for foreign students who wish to pursue higher education in the Czech Republic. No previous knowledge of Czech is needed; the course is designed for complete beginners.
You will learn to actively communicate in common life situations as well as attain communication basics in the area of your specialization via e-learning, consultations and self-study.

With the Intensive Course, you will be able to learn the basics of Czech on-line and then deepen your knowledge and skills in a Czech environment. The combination of the two approaches should create a comprehensive learning experience for all students who intend to become familiar with the Czech language in the university environment
One of the main goals of the course is to contribute to the successful passing of entrance examinations to a university or other higher education institution. The course will facilitate your integration into Czech society and overcoming social, cultural and language barriers. An individual approach to students and their needs is emphasised.
