aBFCJ0161 Czech Language I 
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. First year students can understand vocabulary and basic phrases related to students, their families, and their immediate specific surrounding, provided people speak clearly and at a slow rate. The knowledge enables students to communicate in common routine tasks, such as shopping, accommodation, using public transport, orientation in the city, asking the way, being able to describe their place of living and people they know by simple phrases and sentences. Students should also be able to fill in forms with personal data, such as name, nationality and address when applying for residence accommodation. Medical students will also learn the vocabulary and phrases from the healthcare at the level of A1 and A2 according to the CEFR.

Teaching methods
The tuition is realised in the form of practical courses. The following teaching methods are used: class discussion, roleplay, work in groups, reading, listening, writing HW (including Projects), word study.
Assessment methods
The tuition is realised in the form of practical courses. The students' presence in these courses is strictly required; a maximum of two unexcused absences is tolerated. Students are allowed to substitute a maximum of TWO classes with another group. Substitutions are not possible in the weeks when Progress Test take place. If a student has more than two unexcused absences, they will not be allowed to take the Final test. The tuition is finished by an end-of-term examination (ETE) consisting of a WRITTEN and an ORAL part. Passing the examination is conditioned by proper attendance, active participation in practical courses, sitting for Progress Tests and successful passing of written and oral exams. The basic limit for passing all tests is 70%. In case of passing all class tests, which are obligatory for all students, the basic limit in the written exam is reduced by 10%. Without successful passing the written exam students will not be allowed to sit for the oral part! Any copying, recording or leaking tests, use of unauthorized tools, aids and communication devices, or other disruptions of objectivity of exams (credit tests) 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 "F" in the Information System.
