VSCJ0686 Czech for Foreigners VI -p
The main aim of the course Czech for Foreigners is to teach students communicate with patients in Czech without any help of English speaking doctors or interpreters and independently write case history. Students can understand information related to very familiar topics that they regularly encounter at school, in the hospital, and in their free time, provided the information is communicated clearly. Students can write simple texts on familiar topics and topics related to their interest, and understand texts that consist of high frequency everyday or job-related language. 3rd and 4th year course focus lies in specialized terminology. Communication skills are developed by working with the texts and dialogues from the course book Czech for Medical Students by Iveta Čermáková. The seminars concentrate on practising thematic doctor-patients dialogues and specialised medical terminology with the use of course book based and teacher created exercises. Study support for all students is offered in the form of e-learning courses available in the Study Materials of their field of studies.
