Learning outcomes
The objective of the course is to acquire the vocabulary and grammatical structures corresponding with the syllabus as well as managing basic communication adequate to the relevant level.
The course focuses on the basic grammar of English. Students will be trained so that at the end of English language teaching in the 1st year (at the end of the summer semester)they will have gained knowledge at the A1 level. Level A1 is the level of beginners who understand sentences and words relating to their persons and their surroundings. They are able to lead a very simple conversation with a patient speaker. They can express the basic ideas about themselves using the phrases they know from the lessons. They can fill out a short form asking about their person.
Prerequisites
English language knowledge level A1 or beginner.

Assessment methods and criteria
Systematic student observation, Test

The attendance is voluntary. The student is not obliged to purchase the textbook used in the lessons; however, it is recommended (this textbook will be used throughout the Bachelor's studies). To pass the final test at least 65 points out of 100 must be achieved (dates subject to agreement, 1 resit). A translation related to the language taught will be part of the test. Other options of passing the course are defined in Vice-Dean's Announcement No. 1/2016. In case the student decides to use the option to replace the final test with the QPT at the British Centre (or the entire subject with the PET certificate and higher), he /she shall inform the lecturer about it no later than on the day of the scheduled final test. (Please note: The Quick Placement Test is only valid for the relevant academic year and must be taken during the academic year in question).
