Harvard University offers an intensive Introductory Czech course during this summer. The course will be taught interactively via zoom, from June 20 to August 8, 2020, and is open to both Harvard and other students. The course satisfies the FLAS contact hours requirement.
This 7-weeks (5 days per week) intensive course (8 credits) provides a comprehensive introduction to modern Czech language and culture for those who would like to speak Czech or use the language for reading and research. Designed for students without any previous knowledge of Czech, the course stresses all four major communicative skills (speaking, listening comprehension, reading, and writing). Students are introduced to Czech culture through readings, screenings, and class discussions. This course prepares students to continue in Czech at the intermediate level or for study or travel abroad in the Czech Republic.
