Akademické gymnáziumškola hlavního města Prahy

English

English is a compulsory subject for all students. Based on the results of an entry test, students are placed in groups of varied levels: pre-intermediate, intermediate, upper intermediate. The tuition of general English is accompanied by lessons of English conversation with a native speaker in the 2nd and 4th years. The students can take extra classes of English by individually selecting academic English seminars – e.g. Business English, British Literature etc. in their 3rd and 4th years respectively. For those interested in preparing for FCE and CAE exams, we provide afternoon courses in cooperation with TANDEM language school. Moreover, 3rd year students may take an intensive conversation course with native speakers.

We regularly organize sight-seeing and language trips to the United Kingdom. We have also been cooperating with foreign partnering schools: Korso Lukio, Vantaa (Finland) and Northside College Preparatory High School, Chicago (the USA).

Students take active part in conversation and translation contests. Team AG represents our school at the international meeting of the European Youth Parliament.
