Summer School of Slavonic (Czech) Studies

July 20 - August 17, 2024

57th edition of the Summer School (1967 - 2024)

The Summer School of Slavonic (Czech) Studies is a four-week intensive summer course of Czech language attended by scholarship holders of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic (see Ministry scholarship) as well as self-paying participants.

The Summer School is intended for beginners, pre‑intermediate, intermediate, advanced and very advanced (A0 to C2 according to Common European Framework of Reference for Languages).


The focus of the lessons is five teaching hours in the morning and consists of an intensive language course, special seminars and lectures.

Three types of language courses are available:

  • intensive course for complete beginners based on English or German (on condition of sufficient interest),
  • a course for pre-intermediate students - two hours of basic Czech, two hours of conversation and a one-hour special course every day; lessons are in Czech,
  • a course for intermediate, advanced and very advanced students – two hours of basic language instruction followed by a one-hour special seminar dedicated to translation and stylistics, two hours of Czech linguistics, literature, history, ethnography, etc.

In the afternoons, Summer School students can attend linguistics and literature seminars, lexical‑stylistic exercises, seminar on interpretation of a literary text and informal seminars on music, history of art, history of Brno, etc. Beginners I and II have the opportunity to attend additional lessons of linguistic exercises in order to develop the knowledge they have attained in their morning lessons. A special linguistic and literary seminar has been prepared for the most advanced students. The recreational part of the programme offers singing, dance lessons, and relaxation exercises. Evenings are reserved for presentations of Czech films.

The programme also includes day-long excursions to places of historical interest in the Czech Republic. For those interested, the Department of Czech for Foreigners is prepared to organize individual work in archives and libraries or individual consultations with professors and other staff from the Faculty of Arts.
