Module summary

Is Czech beer really the best and does it taste different in the country of its origin? Is Prague really so beautiful? Well, CZECH IT OUT! The aim of the course is for you to acquire enough basic Czech so that you can "survive" a holiday in the most remote part of the Czech Republic. We will cover all relevant grammar and useful vocabulary which should, by the end of Semester 2, provide enough platform for you to enable you to confidently converse with native Czechs. Through the additional materials you will become familiar with the relevant parts of Czech history, culture and society. Audio and video tapes will be used to improve your language skills and overall knowledge.Assessment consists of two assignments, together with the completion of the required grammatical and syntactical exercises and a one-hour examination at the end of the semester.For more information, please contact the Departmental Secretary Mrs A. Guliyeva (A.Guliyeva@leeds.ac.uk).
