Czech courses at the University of Konstanz

Do you plan to study a semester or two in the Czech Republic? Are you an East European expert and would you like to learn another Slavonic language? Or do you just want to enjoy exploring a new language and a new country?

The Czech courses at the University of Konstanz are open to students from all courses of study. Staff members and guest students are also very welcome.

The courses on offer usually cover the levels A1 (beginner), A2 (elementary) and B1 (intermediate) of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (see the CEFRL for Czech). If you are looking for a course beyond the B1 level, contact me and I will try to arrange one for you.

As a beginner you can start learning Czech either in the winter semester (2 x 90 minutes a week) or in the summer semester (1 x 90 minutes a week).

The courses listed as "Czech for Students with Slavonic Background" are for students who already speak or learn another Slavonic language (e. g. Russian or Polish). This programme takes three semesters (1 x 90 minutes a week) and each of the courses focuses on another competence (listening & pronunciation, speaking, reading & language analysis). The next start is in summer semester 2020.

For an overview of the currently offered courses, look at ZEuS (Interdisciplinary Programmes).

In all classes, the focus is on oral communication and interaction. Writing is usually a part of the homework. You will gradually become confident in using Czech and find it useful as a means of communication.

You are welcome to contact me via e-mail with any questions or suggestions.
