Want to Learn Czech this Summer?

Have you always wanted to learn the language of your ancestors or friends?  There is a wide range of Summer Schools of Czech Language in the Czech Republic waiting for you.


Czech language courses are organised by several public universities in the Czech Republic:

  • Charles University (Faculty of Arts, Prague),
  • Charles University Institute for Language and Preparatory Studies in Poděbrady,
  • Masaryk University (Faculty of Arts, Brno),
  • Palacký University in Olomouc (Faculty of Arts, Olomouc),
  • University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice (Faculty of Philosophy, České Budějovice)
  • and the University of West Bohemia in Plzeň.

The courses are held during the summer months (July – September), their length ranges from 2 to 4 weeks depending on the course content determined by each Summer School and are designed for foreign students, teachers, translators and interpreters and other experts active in the field of Czech/Slavonic studies. Due to their broad scope they are, however, open to anyone else who is interested in the Czech language, literature, history and culture.

The Summer Schools offer language courses at various levels of proficiency, seminars on the Czech literature, culture and history, free-time activities including theatrical, musical and dance performances, trips etc.

The applicants bear the related expenses themselves. Applications are to be filed directly with the selected faculty/institute.
