Preparatory and language course for international students

This preparatory and language course is designed for those who intent to take Bachelor or Master study programs, but do not have sufficient knowledge of the  language necessary to follow courses.

We offer preparatory course both in English (intermediate) or Slovak (beginners).

The course not only includes English lessons (general English and professional English necessary to begin the course) but it also introduces students to the basics of Slovak (as a foreign language) and to some traditions and customs in Slovakia. From this perspective the course includes elements of intercultural communication.

The course aims to increase fluency in writing, speaking and listening on the current professional topics, prepare students for seminars and written/oral examinations, raise awareness of language, structures and vocabulary related to subject areas and emphasize on the practice in giving oral presentations.

This course is tailored specifically for international students who intent to apply for any degree either in Slovakia, nor in Europe.

Classes will deal with listening, discussion, reading and writing in the current global topics and issues in total hour 20/per week. Emphasis will be placed on note-taking, appropriate academic style and presentation practice; not only the professional language to be improved, but soft skills as well.

At the end of the course the students will take a final exam, that includes a project presentation and an essay. Each student will obtain the Certificate after the successful completion of the course.
