The course is the second semester of an introduction to the Czech language with an emphasis on speaking, listening, and reading. In addition to the textbook, videos will be used not only to increase comprehension, but also to expose the student to Czech culture.

Attendance and active participation, while important to any course, are vital to foreign language study. Students are thus urged and expected to ask questions and contact the instructor in cases of uncertainty—whether regarding course content, assignments or any other aspect of the class. The instructor, in turn, will make every effort to respond as quickly and accurately as possible to student questions or concerns.

Grading: Short tests: 35%, Final exam: 15%, Homework: 15%, Quizzes: 10%, Attendance/participation: 15%, Portfolio: 10%
