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 - 11:30 9:00 - 11:30
7:00 - 8:30 7:00 - 8:30
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.
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. a 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 enroll 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 (or 1,5 -hour) lesson for about 10-15 students is satisfactory and guarantees a steady and quick progress.

Registration procedure for Czech courses:
1. The most important thing is to know your level. Anyone who has already attended one of our courses knows their level. Total beginners will attend A1.1.. If you have not taken a final test in our Centre before or are not a beginner, it is necessary that you come to our center at Mezírka 1 (6th floor) BEFORE THE REGISTRATION BEGINS and take a test. If you have taken a test after attending one of our courses, you do not have to come. If you are not sure, you can come and consult your level with the Czech methodologist BEFORE REGISTRATION BEGINS.
(If you did not pass the placement test and you registered yourself for the course, the lecturer could disqualify you.)
2. On the day online registration begins, you must already know your level. Chose the course that you want to attend from our schedule. All courses will be available on this site à https://cizinci-eu.webnode.cz/kurzy-cestiny/
3. Save the link for the registration.
4. Chose the course that you want to attend and click on Log in. Fill in the short registration form. Your registration will be displayed to the Centre´s employees. Do not re-send the form; your registration was already sent when you clicked the Send button the first time.
5. Registration forms are open for 15 attendees and 10 alternates. Therefore wait for a confirmation e-mail if you got in or not.
Registration is possible only via the online form. You can register FOR ONE COURSE ONLY. If the teacher determines that your knowledge of Czech does not correspond to the course level, you will be removed from the course. Therefore, carefully think about which course you want to register for.
