Czech Language Course

Dear applicants! We appreciate very much your interest in the Czech Language Course for Foreign Participants, however currently the capacity of the course has been filled and we cannot accept any other applications for the academic year 2017/18.

The Czech Language Course is designed especially for participants who want to study at CTU.

The goal of the intensive one-year Czech Language Course is to attain the level of Czech necessary for studying at a technical university in the language. A good command of Czech at the entrance procedures (B2 level according to the European Reference Framework) is a necessary prerequisite for study at CTU Faculty of Transportation Sciences.

Academic year 2017/2018:

  • Winter semester    1 October 2017 – 20 December 2017    –    20 Czech lessons a week
  • Summer semester    8 January 2018 – 31 May 2018    –    20 Czech lessons a week

The maximum number of participants in a class is 16, (the class opens if at least 8 students apply). The Czech Language Course concentrates on mastering speech skills (reading, writing, speaking, listening comprehension), development of communicative skills (vocabulary expansion, idioms) and the ability to react in everyday situations. The participants gradually learn about Czech culture too.

As well as the intensive Czech Language Course, in the summer semester there is a supplementary training in mathematics and physics which form a part of the CTU entrance tests. The course´s price is not included in the language course price, those who are interested pay extra (other courses at CTU see https://czv.cvut.cz/priprava.php).

The extent of the courses gives the participants a good chance to prepare well for the entrance examination.

The preparatory course is taught by qualified CTU teachers using effective teaching methods.

At the end of the summer semester the participants take the final exam and receive a certificate of course completion. A participant who joins the course as a beginner can after completing all study duties attain the B2 level according to the European Reference Framework.

The course’s price CZK 69.500,- (2.700 EUR if necessary) covers the course’s costs including tests and the final test and basic study materials.

Notice for non-Slavic participants in the course:
In the Preparatory Course of Czech there will be majority of participants, whose mother tongue is in some of the Slavic languages. Logically the learning will be easier for them and their pace in learning will be quicker. Therefore, it is recommended that you consider carefully if you are willing to devote an increased effort and amount of time to study Czech for the entire course.
