Letní škola českých studií v Kalifornii

Intensive Introductory or Intermediate Czech at UCLA

Both courses will emphasize practical skills in speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Films, music, speakers, and Czech cultural activities will be an essential part of the learning experience.

As an ACLS-sponsored program, there is no tuition for graduate students in related fields!
