Czech Language Year 1

Teaching of Czech Language and Literature during the First Year focuses on developing speaking and vocabulary. Part of the teaching contains visual and aural exercises, listening to spoken fairy tales and dramatization. We lead our pupils in memorization and recitation of simple rhymes, poems and short narration. We develop the expression of pupils in Czech by asking questions with the aim to support their self-confidence in expressing answers to these questions.

 

In the First Year the pupils undergo a preparatory period for writing, when they acquire basic writing skills and perform not too demanding exercises with the aim of preparing them for writing letters. From the “pre-spelling-book period“ the pupils pass fluently to “spelling-book period”, which encompasses Language Education, Education in Literature and Communication and Stylistic Education.
