Do you want to become a doctor?

14.10.2019 / Courses

Each country needs doctors, that is why we are glad the amount of medics in the Czech Republic is increasing (see the news below).

ILPS CU offers Year Preparatory Course for students who plan to study Medicine (General Medicine, Dentistry, Physiotherapy). See details here.

Apart from Czech language, students also learn biology, chemistry and physics and, if necessary, mathematics, Latin and an introduction to Logic, according to the requirements of individual faculties and fields of study.

More than 300 students enrolled in the General Medicine in Czech language this week at the Faculty of Medicine, which is part of Charles University. It's about 50 future doctors more than last year. The government supported a 15% increase in the number of students of general medicine this year by CZK 500 million, of which over 62 million went to the Faculty of Medicine in Pilsen.
"For the faculty, change means, among other things, the reorganization of first year schedules and the purchase of equipment and study materials, specifically microscopes for teaching histology," said Jiří Ferda, vice-dean for general medicine.

16.09.2019 / Courses

The academic year 2019/2020 has already begun at all ILPS CU centres

Students were welcomed to their study at each centre and then also officially in the beautiful historical building of Karolinum, where together they sang the student anthem "Gaudeamus igitur".

They will certainly hear it again in a year during matriculation ceremonies at universities and then again in a few years at graduation ceremonies.

In order to do so, teachers and other employees of the ILPS CU centres will help them and students will certainly be preparing for lessons :-)

We believe that together we will "sail" through the new academic year, our young students will learn Czech, improve their professional knowledge, and make new friends!

For 10 years, we have been the only full member of ALTE in the Czech Republic

02.09.2019 / Attention!

Only the Institute of Language and Preparatory Studies of Charles University meets the strict international standards of the Czech language examination

Prague, 29th August 2019 – The Institute for Language and Preparatory Studies, Charles University, celebrates ten years of membership of the Association of Language Testers in Europe (ALTE) at the end of August. As the only institution in the Czech Republic it can claim that its Czech Language Certificate Exam (CCE) has repeatedly met the strict conditions of the international language exam quality audit.

The Association of Language Testers in Europe – ALTE brings together language examiners who work to promote fair and accurate assessment of language competence in Europe and beyond. It was founded in 1989 and today has 34 full members representing 25 European languages. To get full membership, it is necessary to meet 17 common ALTE standards. The standards cover all phases of the foreign language testing process – creating tests, administration and logistics, evaluation, statistical analysis, and communication with exam users.

In the Czech Republic, all the conditions were met for the first time in 2009, when the Czech Language Certificate Exam (CCE) of the Institute of Language and Preparatory Studies of Charles University (ILPS CU) passed the audit. The exam is intended for all applicants for whom Czech is not their mother tongue and who want or need to verify the level of their communication competence in Czech. These are mostly foreigners who plan to study at Czech universities, want to find a job in the Czech Republic, or want to obtain Czech citizenship.

"The exam verifies language skills at five levels – from the lowest level, A1, to the second highest, C1. For those interested, it is important that they can take the exam not only in Prague and Brno, but also at more than 15 locations abroad. For example, we test in Berlin, Kiev, London, Moscow, Warsaw, and Vienna, but also in Tokyo," says PhDr. Pavel Pečený, Head of the ILPS CU Research and Test Centre, whose team is developing the exam.

The ATLE international audit is not only a test of the professional quality of the exam, but also a guarantee of fair and reliable results. This is essential for a language examination of such high importance. For most candidates, passing the CCE exam is an important life step that determines their future destiny, i.e. whether they will fulfil their dream and be able to study or work in the Czech Republic.

ILPS CU also offers the CCE exam for youth. Pupils and students under 16 years of age can take the exam at levels A1 and A2, for example in the French Lyceum in Prague; abroad, the exam is regularly held in Weiden, Germany.

"Every year, we test students from Bavarian Realschule who study Czech as an optional subject. There is also another activity connected to CCE in Germany", adds Pečený. "In Weiden, apart from the youth, for several years now we have also been testing Bavarian police officers who study Czech as part of their professional development."

In addition to the CCE exam, ILPS CU is also developing the Czech Language Exam for the purpose of granting Czech citizenship, which it provides throughout the Czech Republic together with the Czech Life and Institutions Exam prepared by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports. Every year, nearly 3,000 candidates take the exam process. Thanks to its membership in ALTE, ILPS CU is the only university institution that can also provide the Examination of the Czech Language for Permanent Residence in the Czech Republic.

How many Czechs do you think live around the world outside the Czech Republic?

16.08.2019 / Courses

How many Czechs do you think live around the world outside the Czech Republic?

Around 2 million, i.e. every sixth Czech.

ILPS CU plays a big role in the development of an educational programme for expatriates.

In cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic (MFA CR), the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic (MEYS CR), and the House of Foreign Cooperation (Dům zahraniční spolupráce, DZS), we organize a methodological course of Czech as a foreign language for teachers from expatriate communities and a Czech language summer course for expatriates.

This year, the summer course took place in Poděbrady for the first time (before it always took place in Dobruška). Interest in the course was huge as ever and we are pleased that many scholarship holders are returning to us as self-payers.

The end of this summer school and the presentation of certificates to the participants are traditionally held in the prestigious premises of Czernin Palace. On 15 August, students were welcomed by the Special Envoy for Foreign Affairs of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic Jiří Krátký, Director of the International Relations Department of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic Mgr. Ladislav Bánovec, DZS Deputy for Expatriate Affairs PaedDr. Olga Vlachová, and ILPS CU Deputy Director Ing. Michaela Šolcová. As always, the event was led by Mrs. Vlaďka Koreňová, the head of the summer course for expatriates. Summer school for expatriates is over, but we know for sure that next year we will meet again with many of its participants (some of them already for the twentieth time!)

See you next year!

Workshop with Jaromir Plachy-PC game author

10.08.2019 / Courses

The Czech computer game Chuchel spilled over the Czech Republic instantly and became a world classic.

In 2018 at the IGF Independent Games Awards in San Francisco the game won the first prize Excellence In Visual Art. The author of the game, Jaromir Plachy, considers it an animated grotesque which reminds the traditions of a Czech animated film.

At workshop with Jaromir Plachy our students got acquainted with the story of the character's creation (we'll reveal a secret: the author mixed his character with the character of his dog) and how the author changed Chuchel's appearance to be not accused of racism. At the end of a funny and interesting presentation, students got the opportunity to install this game on their laptops.

During the Czech Evening, students had learned not only about the geography of our country, but also about what the Czech Republic brought to the world in general.
In addition to interesting folk customs and traditional dishes, such as bohemian crystal, shoes, music and dance (students learned to dance mazurka and polka that evening), literature, scientific discoveries and of course beer!

Dragon Race - Podebrady

31.05.2019 / Novinky z blogu

Do not miss the photo report from a unique event, which is traditionally held in Poděbrady.

Below is an excerpt from the Poděbrady centre blog. You can find the whole article and photos here.

"As every year, the ILPS students participated in the Dragon Boat Race "PODĚBRADSKÉ DRAČÍ SRDCE" (Poděbrady Dragon's Heart) for a Poděbrady challenge cup, which was held on 25 May 2019 at the Poděbrady lake. A twenty-member crew of students from all over the world trained well to compete with six other experienced racing teams. Each crew completed three 200-metre start races along the bank, and a 1000-metre race in which the ships circle the island in the middle of the lake.

The ILPS Poděbrady team took a beautiful 7th place in the 200m race as well as in the final 1000m race, and for their perseverance they earned a special reward – a Cup for the most likeable crew in the Dragon Race."

We are very happy that every year the students participate in large numbers!

ATTENTION! Changes in the CCE Exam as of January 1, 2018

The changes in the CCE Exam are the result of revision and comparison of the tested skills (in the original Reading Comprehension, Listening Comprehension and Grammar/lexical test /only B2 and C1/) with how the individual levels are defined by external standards (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, CEFR) and the needs of the candidates who apply for the CCE Exam.

This led to the creation of a new exam structure, meaning in short what is tested in the exam and what the interpretation of the results pertains to. This new definition of the structure resulted in the new version of the subtests Reading Comprehension, Listening Comprehension and the Grammar/lexical test (only B2 and C1).

Workbook for most popular Czech language textbook just released

29.01.2016 / Attention!

"When I started with teaching of Czech as a foreign language, its methodology was still in its infancy. Obviously, it was the English language whose teaching was most developed back then, nevertheless, I was inspired by the German language thanks to its complex grammar structure." recalls PhDr. Zdena Malá, author of the Czech Step by Step 1 workbook, of the just released Czech Step by Step 2 workbook and director of the Prague-Krystal center of the Institute for Language and Preparatory Studies of the Charles University in Prague in one person.

"I started to create additional exercises and activities for teaching of Czech as a foreign language, which would at least slightly resemble exercises from inspirational German textbooks. I was trying to focus on an interesting and creative form so that apart from the grammar rules also communication skills would be practiced. Soon after that I started to cooperate with an author of the most used Czech language textbooks, Dr. Lída Holá" adds PhDr. Malá.

The second part of the author's workbook brings additional exercises for the lessons 11-20 of the textbook Czech Step by Step 2 (Česky krok za krokem 2 / Tschechisch Schritt fur Schritt 2 / Чешский шаг за шагом 2). It offers a lot of activities for each lesson which serve for practicing of taught communication skills, vocabulary, and grammar and are accompanied by two-colored photographs and illustrations. The publication structure is similar to the one of the first part. For orientation there are marks right next to the exercises designating a corresponding page and exercise in the textbook. More difficult exercises exceeding the B1 level are marked with the plus sign and they are destined to be alternatively used by motivated students or for students who are native Slavic language speakers.

At the end of each lesson there is a page dedicated to spelling, this part is especially focused on i and y spelling which is very often incomprehensible for foreign students. Most exercises have solution given in the key at the end of the publication. Therefore, the workbook is appropriate for work in class, as well as for self-study.

The publication also offers a number of texts with tasks preparing students for the reading comprehension part of the Czech Language Certificate Exam at the B1 level or the Exam for Applicants for Permanent Residency, which takes place exclusively at the Institute for Language and Preparatory Studies of the Charles University in Prague. The whole series of the Czech Step by Step textbooks and workbooks is therefore a significant piece of work in the field of education.

An extract from the Lesson 1 of the workbook is freely available at:

The more languages you know, the more times you are a human:-)

01.10.2014 / Attention!

European Day of Languages – 16 languages in one place!

Thursday, 25th September, was a perfect day for anyone who has ever, even for a few hours, dreamed of becoming a polyglot. It was a day when visitors to the European Day of Languages event, held at Prague's Lucerna Arcade, had a chance to explore 16 different languages! From 4pm until 7pm, each visitor had an opportunity to talk to native speakers and teachers of those languages.

Everyone who came enjoyed the event very much - they learned new words and some spoken language, and they were even given a small present from the teachers for making the effort:-).

Apart from the most widely spoken languages like English, French, Italian, German and Spanish, Czech language proved to be very popular among the event's foreign visitors. The Czech language section was led by the Prague-Albertov study centre's Eva Hlaváčková and Jana Nováková who were extremely busy right from the beginning – already at 4pm people lined up waiting to have their go, and the line never stopped growing. Mgr. Marie Poláčková, Director of Prague-Albertov centre, also joined the event and took part in the activities.

We are very happy about the fact that Czech language has proved to be no underdog among the world languages. On the contrary, many foreigners were attracted by the idea of discovering Czech and stopped by to 'chat' with our teachers. Besides having a nice language experience and taking small presents home, they could also learn about the Czech for Foreigners courses, taught at the Prague-Albertov centre.

The Lucerna Arcade was very busy, indeed, on that day. It was interesting to watch the kind of people who came to see the event – at first they were those people who knew about it from different advertisements and the Interent. But soon, many curious passers-by, who realized that this wasn't any celebrity autograph signing session but a chance for them to learn a few foreign words, phrases or just the alphabet in so many languages, also decided to wait in a line, without being discouraged by the crowds:-).

What is more, the visitors could take part in a contest and win 3 language courses of their choice as well as be included in a prize draw where they could win a book voucher or gift books, CDs or DVDs. The only thing they had to do was to take at least 3 mini-lessons, which appeared to have been an easy task because, this being a great opportunity for them to try and learn so many new languages in one place, most of the participants took more than 3 lessons:-).

Apart from the already mentioned languages, the visitors could also learn a bit of Basque, Bulgarian, Finnish, Galician, Lithuanian, Latvian, Norwegian, Polish, Portugese and Romanian.

The day after the event, the Prague-Albertov centre held an Open Day event within the European Day of Languages where the visitors could take 3 Czech lessons free of charge.

Not for nothing do we say that THE MORE LANGUAGES YOU KNOW, THE MORE TIMES YOU ARE A HUMAN. And how many languages do you know?

Don't think twice and pick a course from our great selection:-)

LEARNING THROUGH PLAY!

24.03.2014 / Courses

LEARNING THROUGH PLAY in the centre of Prague- Albertov !

A new and original form of studying in presented to students of the Prague centre- Albertov. Every Wednesday the cultural centre organizes an afternoon with interesting programs. In early March, the centre held a „Cultural Wednesday" focused on KH Mach and Czech literature. Next Wednesday, students will have the opportunity to see the Czech film „Kuky returns" (cinema MAT) .

I had the opportunity to attend a "Cultural Wednesday"  last week ( 19.03 ) . First, the students gathered in the auditorium of the Centre Albertov and then they went on a sightseeing walk through the center of Prague.

In the auditorium, a pleasant teacher passed out texts to all the students, all about the Old Town Clock (of course in Czech ) and everyone tried to understand the articles . The articles then were read aloud and subsequently translated. However, do not think that it was a mere reading comprehension - not at all, no boring hours. The young teacher explained the problematic terms and complemented them with various other examples from everyday life.  Each explanation was accompanied by what would say was a theatrical performance, so that students not only learned new words, but also had fun doing it. On behalf of all the students I would like to thank the young teacher!

In the Powder Tower, the students were divided into groups and were accompanied by students from the Travel and Tourism High School, all conversations were in English, Russian and Spanish. Students from the Russian group (students from Russia and Ukraine) greatly helped the Czech students from the first to third year who had a bit of trouble with the Russian language.  It was nice to see how all the students were able to overcome the language barrier. I even witnessed a lovely exchange of emails that two students passed between themselves in order to meet again and tutor each other in the foreign language.

If I have a little time, I'm sure I will be more than happy to attend another "Cultural Wednesday" in the centre Prague- Albertov. We got along together greatly and had a lot of fun. Moreover, I've seen with my own eyes how learning can be fun at the Centre.

COME TO LEARN CZECH - LEARNING THROUGH PLAY is here for you!
