Department of Foreign Languages of Czestochowa           University of Technology

Demand for linguistically competent graduates has been growing dramatically, especially after Poland's accession to the European Union structures. To meet this demand, it is obligatory for all Bachelor-level sjo_big and PhD students, whatever their degree subject area, to acquire necessary skills in a foreign language. What is more, knowledge of foreign languages is recognized as a key to a successful professional career in all fields. The Polish Association for Human Resources Management, after analyzing the all-Poland survey conducted in nearly 400 big and medium-sized companies, stated that knowledge of foreign languages is the most important factor when recruiting new employees. Linguistically competent graduates also significantly increase their career prospects on a global market.

At CUT foreign language education is conducted at the Department of Foreign Languages, which is an inter-faculty unit of the University. It is responsible for teaching and testing linguistic competence of students and doctoral graduates as laid down by the University statutory requirements. In addition, DFL lecturers assess student-candidates for scholarships or internships abroad.

The DFL offers General Language, Language for Special Purposes and Business Language classes in 4 foreign languages. Languages offered include: English, German, French and Russian. Emphasis is put on the practical use of the language. The courses are available at post-beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. The classes are conducted in 12 lecture rooms with appropriate audio-visual and computer-based facilities. The language laboratory, with 18 user panels, has the latest multimedia equipment.

The academic staff of the Department are well qualified and experienced tutors who develop their linguistic and teaching skills participating in various conferences and methodological workshops both at home and abroad. Language training is provided in compliance with Common European Framework of Reference for Languages requirements. The Department is a member of the Association for Foreign Language Centres at Institutions of Higher Education (SERMO), representing Poland in the European organization CercleS. The main objective of CercleS is to assure the highest standards in foreign languages teaching in the European educational spectrum.
