On-site courses

On-site courses take place on the premises of the Tertiary Medical School (VOŠ zdravotnická) at Kounicova 684/16 in Brno. One course lasts for 3.5 months and is structured as follows:

  • 25 lessons - 1 lesson = 3 x 45 min

  • 2 lessons per week

Courses take place on the following days and times:

Wed + Mon:                                Tue + Thurs:

                                                  9:00 - 11:15                                    9:00 - 11:15

                                                 12.00 - 14.15                                   12.00 - 14.15

                                                17.30 - 20.00                                  17.30 - 20.00

The courses are taught by experienced teachers and are divided into the following target levels according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: 

A1.1. - A1.2. - A2.1. - A2.2. - B1.1. - B1.2

The course indicates the target rather than the entry level. The system of our courses is as follows.

  • Absolute beginners are enrolled an A1.1. course where the only initial requirement is the knowledge of the Latin alphabet.

  • At lower levels, we divide students into Slavic and non-Slavic groups.

  • If you are not a beginner, you must take a placement test so that we can properly determine your level.

  • Progress from one level to another is verified by a final test. The test examines the substance covered in a given course. If your score in the final test is 70% and more, you can enrol in the next level course.

  • You can attend a course of the same level again.

  • These rules are not meant as restrictions, we try to ensure the maximum quality of our courses. Therefore, it is important to determine your level as accurately as possible so that the class can be homogeneous.

  • As time allocated to each lesson is relatively long, we can accommodate groups of 10 to 15 students. Our experience confirms that a 3-hour lesson for about 10-15 students is satisfactory and guarantees a steady and quick progress.
