Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Basic Czech I is a modern textbook of Czech for English-speaking students. It consists of six modules and is based on communication and the comparative approach. It aims to present the basics of the Czech language by means of continuous and systematic acquisition of vocabulary and conversation phrases connected with covered topics: social phrases, around the city and house, restaurant, hobbies, shopping and travelling. Grammar, closely linked to the vocabulary, is a mere means of achieving this goal. Clear charts help the user to remember the covered topics easily. The use of the mediating language is reduced to a minimum; it fulfils the role of an apt explanation. The textbook contains many humorous dialogues. Basic Czech I corresponds with the A1 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. The aim of this textbook of Czech for foreigners is to provide a brief introduction to the fundamentals of the language. The book contains six modules; while the first focuses on the Czech alphabet and pronunciation, the remaining chapters always present a common topic which serves as a basis for language practice. The book contains more than 700 words and phrases.
