The Language Centre is a component part of the Faculty of Social Sciences of Charles University. It was set up in 1990 with the foundation of the faculty. Its aim is to provide language tuition that will reflect the needs of the students.
The Language Centre secures courses of English, German, French, Spanish, Russian and Italian for all the institutes within the faculty. The courses are designed to provide students with crucial vocabulary specific to the study fields offered at the faculty (i.e. Economics, Mass Media Studies and Journalism, International Relations, Political Science and Sociology). The courses aim to prepare students better for their future careers.
In addition, the Centre provides the courses of Czech as a Foreign Language.
Our teachers adapt the courses to satisfy individual needs of the students from different institutes with the emphasis on specialized language. They focus on the solidification of languages skills as well as the mastering of communication skills in a given study field.
