66th LŠSS 2023 FAQ

Placement test

Each participant must fill out the test before the start of LŠSS. It will serve as the basis for your placement in a student group. The online test is to be taken individually – it will be available until the end of June (June 1-June 30, 2023).

The participants will be tested on grammar, reading, listening, and writing.

The link for the mandatory placement test was distributed to applicants with completed applications by email.

Additionally, after arriving to Prague, each participant will also be asked to complete a short interview.

They will be provided with a proof of study for the transportation company upon Registration. More information on fares is available here.

Support in case of medical emergencies 

During the Summer School of Slavonic Studies, administrative assistants are available during office hours for assistance, as well as at the dormitory (including overnight for emergency situations).

Medical facilities

Due to the close proximity to the dormitories and the variety of services available, students are typically taken to Motol Hospital should the need for medical attention occur. In the past, we have had good experience with Polyclinic Na Národní as well.
