In the afternoons, Summer School students can attend linguistics and literature seminars, lexical-stylistic exercises, seminar on interpretation of a literary text and informal seminars on music, history of art, history of Brno, etc. Beginners I and II have the opportunity to attend additional lessons of linguistic exercises in order to develop the knowledge they have attained in their morning lessons.
