  The Language Policy for Incoming Students and Staff

The Language of Instruction

The language skills required for different mobility types are communicated
individually at the tender announcement.

The Czech Language

The official language of the Czech Republic is the Czech language and the
knowledge of English is not sufficiently widespread among the Czech
population. For this reason, the incoming students and staff are offered
free courses in the Czech language and they are provided with necessary

Incoming Students

Before the Erasmus Mobility Period, those incoming students are encouraged
to attend a free Czech EILC course. To find a proper course, please visit
the National agency

An ITB ESN Buddy mentor is constantly available for each incoming student
to provide help in all situations that require the knowledge of the Czech
language. Students may also contact the Coordinator of Foreign Relations.
As part of the Introduction Week (5 ECTS) Block Course, students are made
familiar with the most basic phrases in the Czech language.

This course is prepared especially for foreign students. The aim of this
course is to help students reach the A1 level of the Common European
Framework of Reference for Languages. After the completion of the course,
the students:

- can understand basic phrases which are needed for everyday communication
and can use these expressions and phrases
- can introduce themselves and other people and ask simple questions
concerning well known places, people and things and react to similar
- can read simple texts (notices, signs, etc.)
- can write simple texts in the Czech language (a holiday postcard, fill in
a simple form, etc.)
- are familiar with culture and everyday life in the Czech Republic
- are aware of the cultural differences between their native country and
the Czech Republic

Incoming Staff

Incoming staff can attend a Czech Language for Foreigners organized by the
ITB's Centre for Lifelong Learning. They can contact a mentor designated by
the receiving department, the Coordinator of Foreign Relations and the ITB
ESN Buddy Club.
