Summer course for Ukraine

The Institute for Language and Preparatory Studies of Charles University will provide free Czech language classes to almost three hundred Ukrainian citizens. This will be made possible by a financial donation from the J&T Foundation aimed at supporting people affected by the war in Ukraine.

We are convinced that the knowledge of language is a primary tool of integration, protects people against isolation and social exclusion, and enables them to establish relationships, find jobs and pursue their education. Therefore, by teaching the language we want to support all those who are currently facing adversity. Thanks to this cooperation, we are opening groups for crash courses, morning and evening courses, intensive courses and summer schools.

Scholarship support covers the cost of classes and teaching materials but does not cover living expenses or accommodation costs.


Termíny připravovaných kurzů, přihlášky a další podrobnosti budou zveřejněny v průběhu srpna. Připravované kurzy budou probíhat od září do listopadu 2022. Kurzy se konají v nově zrekonstruovaných výukových prostorách ÚJOP UK Praha-Voršilská v centru Prahy nedaleko Národního divadla.
