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.
If you wish to complete the specialized preparation for your future study, you can also apply for preparatory entrance exam courses offered by MU faculties.

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. The course will be completed by taking the final exam.
The nature of the course enables tailoring the teaching/learning materials to the users’ needs. We will use both the traditional textbooks of Czech as a foreign language and supplementary and authentic resources.
