Intensive courses at Albertov start next week! Hooray! Before you actually start to study Czech, we need to talk to you in person, check your identity and get some information about you – where you come from, what is your motivation, if you already know some Czech etc. That´s why we need you to come to the registration which takes place on Monday September 12th at 8:30 at Albertov.
What should I take with me?
Because we need to check your identity and all the information you already gave us at the on line registration, be sure you have your passport or some other identity card where we can see all the needed information. You will also get your student ID so don´t forget to take with you two passport pictures of you!
My form is filled – what´s next?
After registration, students which have already studied Czech before will take placement test. This test has three parts – reading, grammar & vocabulary and listening and there is one for each language level, so there are four tests in total. Each test takes 15 minutes. If you get 12 points from one test, you can continue writing another one. If you get less, you will have a small conversation with two teachers in Czech.
How long does the registration take?
If you are a beginner, the registration will be quite short for you, however it will take some time because there are a lot of students who need to be registered too. It is always better to not plan meetings for 9 am.
If you will need to write the test(s), you might spend there a while but it shouldn´t be more than two hours. It depends on the other students, whether they come on time or not. While waiting for the registration or the test you can stay in the “ relaxing zone“ and get yourself a coffee of some cold beverage.
When will I know to which class I belong?
We are sure you would like to know to which class you belong right after the registration but it is not possible. We always need to think about the best level for you according to your test results and the conversation. And it takes time. That´s why you will find your class on the first day of the lessons.
On Tuesday there is the information day at Albertov. It starts at 9:00. There are special language groups – English, German, French, Russian, Japanese, Korean and Chinese. You will find the number of the class you are in at the table by the entrance. In your group, you will get all the information you need about the school – when and how long are the classes, what you should or shouldn´t do, you will see the computer room, library, student´s kitchen… After that you will go for a short tour to see the most important places in Prague. And of course, you will have chance to talk to the other students or the teacher and ask about anything you need to know…
