- 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.

- Assessment methods
- The tuition is realised in the form of practical courses. The students' presence in these courses is strictly required, maximally two properly apologised absences are tolerated. The tuition is finished by a course-unit credit given on the basis of the students' presence, preparation for classes, sitting for Progress Tests and their successful passing of a Final test.The basic limit for passing all tests is 70%. In case of passing all class test, which is obligatory for all students, the basic limit in the Final test is reduced by 10%. Students who score a minimum of 90% in EACH progress test are not obliged to take the credit test. Any copying, recording or leaking tests, use of unauthorized tools, aids and communication devices, or other disruptions of objectivity of exams will be considered non-compliance with the conditions for course completion as well as a severe violation of the study rules. Consequently, the teacher will finish the exam by awarding grade "N" in the Information System, and the Dean will initiate disciplinary proceedings that may result in study termination.
