Czech courses at the University of Konstanz

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

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. However, if you are looking for a course above the B1 level, by all means contact me and I will try to arrange one for you.

There are two different courses for beginners.

The course listed as “Basic Level Czech 1” is for students who have not learnt any Slavonic language before. It starts in the winter semester.

The course named “Czech for Students with Slavonic Background” is for students who already speak or are learning another Slavonic language (e. g. Russian or Polish). This course starts in the summer semester.

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

In all classes, the focus is on oral communication and interaction. Writing is usually a part of the homework. Working together in small groups, you will gradually become confident in using Czech, find it useful as a means of communication, and open a door to a vibrant cultural history.

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