Czech Language and Culture (KCJ/0CEER)

The Czech Language and Culture course (KCJ/0CEER), which takes the form of practical tuition, acquaints international students (non-native speakers of Czech who have no experience with the Czech language) with the basics of the Czech language, Czech history, culture, and study system. 

During language lessons, attention is focused on basic grammar, phrases, specific features of Czech orthography, pronunciation and vocabulary, and on specific issues concerning the orientation in the Czech Republic (signs, menus, timetables, etc.). 

The course also covers topics from Czech history and culture; attention focuses on the way of life in the Czech Republic and in Ostrava as well. 

Teaching is both in English and Czech (the latter is mostly used in language practice lessons). 

The application process is closed for the 2023 winter semester.

The course will take place in the Welcome Centre, Mlýnská Street, on September 13–15, 2023. Students will be divided into three groups.
