Czech language

Most of CU’s Deaf students’ first language is the Czech Sign Language, with Czech being the second one (the third one being mostly English, followed by other spoken – e.g. German – and sign languages, e.g. American Sign Language, British Sign Language, International Sign System).

Within our organizational limits and our capacities, we offer the following services to Deaf students across the university:
