Czech Department


We all speak Czech, which is why many of us sometimes feel that we don't really have much to learn in Czech language and literature. But the present shows that it is just the opposite. The level of mastery of the national language is declining, causing problems not only in schools but also in practical life. You can study Czech with us and discover that it is not only beautiful but also useful. Together we will teach you to speak and write again... but this time a little differently. You won't be afraid to speak in front of others, you'll be able to argue and discuss, you'll be able to write a request or a formal letter, you won't be caught off guard by an unprepared question or a challenge to formulate your own opinion.

Moreover, you will discover the beauty of artistic literature, which is above all what we want to talk about and let it affect us. We work, among other things, in the form of reading workshops, thinking about the texts, but also playing with them, refining them or being inspired by them.

We are a language school, so it goes without saying that we also try to work with translations, compare the originals with the Czech versions and try to create our own. At the same time, we give you a decent overview of how literature has evolved throughout history and which authors and their ideas are good to know, because they are interesting and inspiring all the time.

Our goal is not to make you a walking encyclopedia of authors and works, but to teach you to love literature and your native language. You can develop yourself through them, and then you can more easily articulate and name things that are important to you and your cultural and spiritual life. Come with us and you will discover that Czech is the magic key to all other disciplines.

You can find Czech language events almost everywhere and almost any time during the school year or week. Why? There are just a lot of them and they are visible. They are popular with pupils, so they participate not only as spectators or listeners, but also as active co-organisers, competitors or speakers. Just ask in Czech and the teachers will include information and offers...

Because we think that the equipment of a true intellectual includes going to the theatre, we go to the theatre together regularly. We cooperate with the Arena Chamber Theatre in Ostrava, where we go to the morning performance after classes and after watching it we have the opportunity to discuss with the dramaturge, director and actors. But we don't shy away from other theatres and ideas either. In school we offer subscriptions (you can get it as a whole class in one term and attend together) to several Ostrava theatres (KSA, DPB, NDM). In the autumn you can recite with us at the Poetry Day. If you are the competitive type, you can test your knowledge in the Czech Language Olympiad or the Linguistic Olympiad. You can advance to higher rounds in both and win interesting prizes and experience. And if you like to read and think, join the reading club or at least drop by the school library. You'll find it in the small B building (room B12) and it's always open during the big break.


It may surprise you, but film education has been taught here for over 15 years. And we are quite unique among grammar schools and other secondary schools. We are aware of the importance of film education and film as a specific art that has been with us since childhood and to which current education does not pay enough attention. But it is different here. All classes of all grades attend selected film performances during the year as part of the Introduction to Film Studies project. Before we go to the cinema, we prepare ourselves theoretically (we learn about the basic principles of cinema, its development, themes and genres...) and then, after watching the film, we analyse it together with others. We include film in our teaching not only as an illustration of historical or other events, but as an art that provides deep moral, aesthetic and educational inspiration. In your fourth year, you can enroll in the FDM (Film, Theatre and Media) seminar and and gain experience in an

attractive field whose future no one can predict. You don't need a camera or a script for a film. All you need is a love of film and the ability to see the world through your own eyes.
