Modern Czech prose, leading to a command of the language as a research tool and providing an adequate basis for further study. Third in a sequence of three. Prerequisite: CZECH 402. Offered: Sp.
This three-term sequence (401-402-403), running from Autumn through Spring, is intended as an intensive introduction to the Czech language. Because of the small size of the classes, courses move at a faster pace than the normal introductory language sequence. The general objective is that at the completion of the one-year sequence students should be able to be creative with the language at the sentence level, handle basic everyday life situations, read simple connected texts dealing with basic personal and social needs, write short simple letters, postcards, diary entries, take down simple notes (e.g., phone messages), etc. The goal is to move from Novice to Intermediate Low/Mid level on the ACTFL Proficiency Scale. Prerequisite: CZECH 402 or permission of instructor
