The Department of Foreign Languages provides courses of foreign languages for specific purposes at four faculties of the Technical University of Liberec and at the Institute of Health Studies. The majority of teaching is provided at the Faculty of Economics, where students of all specialisations in various years of their studies are offered business language courses in English, German, Russian, Spanish, and French. The department also ensures professionally oriented English courses and, to a lesser extent, German courses to students of technical faculties as well as the Institute of Health Studies.
In addition to the required courses, for an extended period, the department has been offering specialised German electives that prepare students for the internationally recognised certificate of professional German "Zertifikat für den Beruf". Czech language courses are also provided by the department for foreign students in the Neisse University and ERASMUS programmes. Teachers of the English section annually prepare a three-week intensive language course for newly recruited students in the international Neisse University programme.
The English section of the department is accredited to administer the internationally recognised TOEIC Listening and Reading examination and to offer it to all students of the TUL.
The department continuously innovates its language courses using the latest methodology with the support of up to date information technology.
