"Interest in Asian Studies at Palacky University in Olomouc is considerable. Last year, the Chinese have reported nearly 200 people, the year before the Japanese have about 50 more applicants, "says Head of Department David Uher, PhD.

Relatively little known fact is that sinology in Olomouc was the first Chinese study established the university in our country. In the early fifties, however, was moved to Prague to study. In 1991 at the initiative of then-Chancellor Professor Joseph Jarabo Preparations for the Restoration of the Chinese branch of philology and the introduction of the Japanese branch of philology. Now teaching at the Department of Czech teachers not only provide, but also teachers from abroad. „Currently we have two Japanese language teachers, one teacher of Chinese, Korean teacher and lecturer Thai,“ said Hungary.

Study Chinese philology is organized as a three-day professional bachelor study Archeology. It is intended for high school graduates with diploma and is divided into two study blocks. In them, the students gradually learn the basics of Chinese language. Trainee should have the fullest range of qualitative and quantitative handle Chinese language especially in terms of practice, and the emphasis is mainly placed on the spoken component. In the fifth semester begins teaching disciplines of translation direction. The study also envisages an alternative two-year Master's follow-up study.

Japanese philology is also a three-year undergraduate two-subject study, which followed the master's degree. The first block of study is focused primarily on the basics of Japanese language. In addition to language lessons, which is given special attention, are realized as objects Introduction to Language, Introduction to Japanese language and literature and introduction to economic geography and history of Japan.

Applicants for Japanese and Chinese philology is not required prior knowledge of Japanese and Chinese. However, it is necessary to control the English language. "The big problem we have with textbooks and dictionaries, because very few materials are Japanese-Czech. English is for us is very important, "says one student japonologie.

And what is the use of students in these fields? „Students who show a genuine interest, are usually applied in Prague for business firms, both Chinese and Czech, guides, studying PGS, enter the civil service, etc. There is even a few of those who leave for employment abroad (mainly PRC),“ says my question, Mr. Uher.

„Japanese and Chinese languages ​​are beautiful, but their study is quite difficult. A person who is studying it with only the prospect of large earnings, or just to do some high school, and he does not care what, it will be difficult to manage. Most important in the study of these languages ​​is the will and desire mainly to study the language, "perhaps agree with all students. "I decided to study Japanese as early as seventh grade in elementary school so they go for it,“ says one of them.
