What will you learn?

Studying the Portuguese language and its literature opens the door for students to understand the multicultural Lusophone world. They can go on to master Portuguese; become familiar with the Lusophone cultures of Europe, South America, and Africa; and understand their cultural contexts and ties. Beside acquiring knowledge of the practical language and specialized linguistic disciplines, such as phonetics, phonology, morphology, and syntax, students will learn about the history, culture, basic facts, lifestyles, institutions, and literatures not only of Portugal and Brazil but also of the Lusophone countries in Africa.

Studying Portuguese will, on one hand, improve students' linguistic knowledge of the skills required in fields based on communication and communication technologies, such as translation or public service, while on the other it will build analytical capabilities, independence, and creativity.

Through a systematic training in connection with practical language, specialized linguistics, and literature, students will master the main principles of a cultivated written and spoken style in both Portuguese and Czech.
