These new editions of the first universal textbooks for studying Czech as a foreign language employ a strictly communication-based format that requires no mediating language and thus is ideal for users of all mother tongues. Fresh and modern in their approach, these books systematically develop all language skills--reading, speaking, listening, and writing--using engaging illustrations and texts that emphasize the natural dialogical character of the language as used in everyday speech.
Jitka Cvejnov 's extensive experience teaching intensive, immersive classes and introducing foreign learners to the Czech world through language also enables her to enrich the books with valuable sociocultural context. Consequently the only Czech language textbooks based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages levels, they are ideal for use in both short-term and long-term courses. The introductory (European Certificate CCE level A1.1) volume Cesky, pros m Start includes a writing exercise book and a CD with listening exercises and is intended as supplementary material for the beginning stages of language instruction. Also suitable for students who are experiencing problems learning Czech, it focuses on practicing the sounds and written components of the language at a slower pace.
Jitka Cvejnova has been teaching Czech as a second or other language since 1982 at prestigious institutions in the Czech Republic and abroad.
