** Student opinion: ** Eva Honová, 3 year (on ak. year 2007/2008), Czech Language and Literature, Faculty of Arts of Charles University:
/ / What you needed to know for the entrance exams? / / The Czech was a written test, which included grammar, factual knowledge of literature and practical analysis of the poem. Oral entrance exams are a farce. I did not know quite a lot, and yet they took me. Then I realized that such a trend is like everywhere else – to recruit as many people as possible and then gradually get rid of them.
/ / What you think is the level of education? / / Some seminars are not worth anything, others are demanding. Generally, I resent impracticality and excessive academia teaching. The Czech specifically bothers me that we must learn by heart ‚phone books‘ writers and celebrities, magazines, etc. that could be easily found in books.
/ / How do you manage the tests? / / By the time I did progress tests in Czech, I managed tolerably.
/ / What do you like to study, and conversely what I do not like? / / It bothers me obsolescence and the blandness of teaching.

** Student opinion: ** Jana Nemcova, 3 year (on ak. year 2007/2008), Czech Language and Literature, Faculty of Arts MU
/ / What you needed to know for the entrance exams? / / For entrance into any field at the Faculty of Arts must complete a study skills tests that verify the general assumptions for the study (ie, verbal thinking, analytical, critical, etc.). This is now also in field of study Czech Language and Literature. But I study in addition to test assumptions also had to demonstrate knowledge of language and literature, and the Czech and the world, although by then the study of this branch, students only deal with Czech literature (in any case to know the context of world literature and is worth).
/ / What you think is the level of education? / / The level of education is high, because the Department of the Institute of Czech language and literature has top scientists, this is in Brno Czech tradition – for example teach the language here the authors Hand czech grammar, literature, among other things, Zbynek Fiser, son of Egon Bondy, and Miroslav Balaštík, guest editor of publishing house and also of the same literary magazine. The question over which they often intend, however, remains to what extent, then all the deep knowledge gained in the study useful in practical life, if a man yearning for linguistic or literary career scientists.
/ / How do you manage the tests? / / Tests are certainly manageable, most of them based around the four required courses per semester. For some tests, however, is quite a large self-denial, that their man has passed. Severe shock for freshmen (and possibly imaginary screen) is usually the test of Old Church Slavonic. Tests of some required courses are also a prerequisite for the subjects in the next year, so if at some tests nezadaří or third time, the risk is that one must forcibly stretch a year studying (such examples known of their surroundings, unfortunately, quite a lot). Unpleasant are also newly introduced reader forums, where students czech must demonstrate that they have loaded the list of compulsory literature (and it is quite „bold“ – about 40 books per semester), otherwise they can not go to the test from the literature.
/ / What do you like to study, and conversely what I do not like? / / The school bothers me, as I indicated, it is indeed a study exclusively of Czech language and „Czech“ literature, so one can not take the literature of the world (unfortunately there are no optional subjects, which would give a holistic world literature section). The majority of students in the school education of future teachers of Czech grammar schools, for which the authors' knowledge of the world's absolutely necessary. Perfect knowledge of the mother tongue is undoubtedly very useful, however, that it gained one must have the will and desire to study, or practical knowledge to students this school does not pass too. Who wants to go on to study Czech FF, and yet he knows that once I became a teacher, is probably worth considering whether some of Czech teaching faculty was far easier path to the profession. Generally, the philosophical faculties are known to have little funding, so no FF in Brno is not „spectacular“ and well-equipped building, but at least has a very nice and well equipped library with quality services. The employability of graduates of some fields at the FF can certainly argue, however, languages, even the Czech, in my opinion the practice still ‚most usable‘. The biggest advantage of the FF in Czech Brno is probably the fact that an undergraduate degree program can be two-subject study faculties of journalism and media studies at FSS MU.
