Information for first year

he organization principles of foreign language courses at FME of CTU are set out in White Book in the section Optional courses - Department of Languages.

Brief summary of principles

Students in bachelor's programme have an obligation to pass a foreign language exam, i.e. bachelor's exam. We recommend to take this exam in the language you master most. In terms of organization, the exam is scheduled for 2nd year in White Book. The exam can be taken in any year of undergraduate study. We recommend not to sign up for the exam in 1st semester and read carefully all exam requirements before (on the website of the Department of Languages, see the link “to download”) and prepare for the exam in optional courses. The exam corresponds to the level you reach after attending the Upper-Intermediate level course.
If your skills do not meet the requirements to attend the course "Language - Intermediate", the Department of Languages strongly recommends attending other optional courses at a lower level. Curricula of the courses are listed in White Book – Optional courses - Department of Languages.

Based on experience, the Department of Languages recommends to sign up:

Secondary-school graduates of grammar school      courses xI *(I - intermediate) - 2 semesters
Secondary-school graduate of technical schools     courses xPI + xI *(PI - pre-intermediate, I - intermediate) - 4 semesters
* x - abrreviation of a chosen language
E – English, G – German, F – French, R – Russian, S – Spanish– Spanish courses are provided only for beginners and pre-intermediate level. In the event that a student wants to take the exam for bachelor courses in Spanish, his/her application to obtain an assessment from the course "Spanish - Intermediate" will be solved individually with the head of the Department of Languages).

The exam has two parts: written and oral.
