Czech, Upper Intermediate

This course is aimed at students who have completed about one hundred contact hours of Czech. It is offered to learners who already have some knowledge of Czech grammar and some communicative competence in the language. The course is designed to extend learners’ knowledge of Czech language and culture, so as to enable them to read journalistic and literary texts and speak Czech with a reasonable degree of fluency. The class consists of one two-hour session per week: the total number of contact hours is forty-two (twenty-one weeks). At the end of the course students have an option of a final written and oral assessment. The course will normally run if there is a minimum of twelve students enrolled for the year. Groups will normally be closed when twenty students have enrolled.
