Within the German department there is a small department for didactics of German as a Foreign Language (DaF) with three teachers (1 PhD, 2 MA). In lectures and workshops the students - the future teachers - get elementary theoretical knowledge of the methodology and didactics as well as the practical experience in schools (through on-field observation). The department also organizes teacher training workshops. The department is taking part in a SOCRATES program called "PERiscop" (within COMENIUS 2.1) together with German and Czech institutions in the field of teacher training and developing new teaching materials on European themes.
