Learning the local language in a foreign city is the quickest way to integrate yourself into daily life. Charles University Institute for Language and Preparatory Studies, situated in the heart of Prague, makes it even easier to improve your Czech language skills with convenient learning on your own schedule and professional teachers you can trust. 

The Charles University Institute offers access to professional lecturers, interactive courses, and modern classrooms – everything just a short walk from the National Theater.

Czech courses are flexible and available for students of all levels. Students can study online or in a classroom, whatever suits their schedule and lifestyle better. Those who choose to study online will learn not only the Czech language but also be given the tools to make their online studies successful. Courses are easy, comfortable, and usually a lot of fun. As Lucas, a student of intensive and now also evening course confirms:

“The courses are a great help to get started in the Czech Republic. It was very nice to have a social environment for people who are in the same situation. In one semester, I was able to learn more Czech than people who lived in the Czech Republic for three or four years, but who did not take any kind of course. Getting to know more Czech friends allowed me to speak more Czech, so it snowballed into this Czech approach to life here, instead of the more expat way of life when you do not dive into the culture that much.”

The four or six-week courses are the best option for the fastest results. Enjoy the beauty of the Czech language while studying it with other students. Enrollment and payment are possible on a monthly basis and the courses are open all year round.

Courses take place in modern classrooms in the very heart of Prague. Students interact with people from all over the world in small groups (4-8 students) when taking an in-person class. Many opt to enjoy cultural events hosted by the school. Those who are working and can’t devote time to studying may find that evening courses are more suitable.

Flexible options are also available if the courses don’t suit your timetable or you don't want to study in a group – enroll instead in individual courses that are tailored to your needs.

  • All classes are taught by highly professional teachers with many years of experience teaching foreigners. Their level can be attested to by the fact that not only foreigners learn languages with them, but Czech teachers also undergo advanced training at our Institute.
  • Courses attach great importance to immersion in the cultural life of the Czech Republic as part of the learning process. Students can attend cultural events or go on excursions and every semester, students and teachers organize a recital and an amateur theater stage; plus, students take part in an essay competition throughout their course.
  • Courses take place in the center of the city near the National Theater, which makes them convenient in terms of transport and location.

Another interesting fact about Charles University Institute? They specialize in foundation programs for international students who wish to study at Czech universities (in Czech or English). The fields of study include Economics, Engineering and IT, Humanities, Arts and Architecture, but the greatest interest is in Medicine.

Whether you need Czech for personal, professional, or academic purposes, do not miss the opportunity to obtain a deeper understanding of the language and culture of the country you live in.
