Reality Czech: A Course in Contemporary Czech Language and Culture

Reality Czech: A Course in Contemporary Czech Language and Culture

Reality Czech is a contemporary, interactive, and personalized curriculum for beginning language students. Designed using techniques of blended and flipped learning, it spans several platforms (Reality Czech website, Canvas course site, Quizlet) as well as various media types (online and print). Each module follows a sequence of pre-class activities (Quizlet vocabulary activities, video and audio with comprehension questions, culture notes, grammar exercises), in-class activities in an activity book that encourages interaction and language production, and post-class activities that use both exercises and authentic texts as a catalyst for students to create language. Work on an intermediate curriculum will begin shortly.  

Partners: The Center for Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies (CREEES) and The Department of Slavic and Eurasian Studies at the University of Texas at Austin
