Why use this read-aloud tool?

This tool's only aim is to encourage you to speak aloud, in order to familiarise yourself with the language you wish to speak.
By listening to yourself speak, you will speed up your rate of learning spectacularly.

On the other hand, we do not advise you to use it thinking that it will allow you to acquire perfect pronunciation, only a human teacher can truly help you to achieve this.

We have added an extra little service to make this tool even more enjoyable, clicking on the words provides you with automatic translations along with the sound. These translations, when correct, can help you to understand the meaning of words in isolation, but do not in any way claim to provide the overall meaning of a sentence. This translation service is only the Beta version of a tool that we intend to offer in the near future.

Please note: this service only works with the CHROME browser, which you can download by clicking on the following link: Google Chrome.

How to learn Czech by yourself? Start with an easy and free online course!

We have adopted an objective and efficient approach to learn how to speak a language easily and quickly: we suggest you to start by memorizing words, phrases and practical expressions that you can use in everyday life and that will be useful when traveling.
Getting used to pronounce words out loud, numbers for exemple, is an easy exercise that you can practice often and at anytime throughout the day. And it will help you to get used to the sounds of your chosen language and thus make it more familiar.
And once your holidays have begun in Prague, Karlovy Vary or elsewhere in the Czech Republic, you will be surprised how familiar and easy to understand it will seem.
Furthermore, using a pocket dictionary is always useful, particularly during a trip. It enables you to find the translation of new words and enrich your vocabulary.

Why speak Czech while traveling?

One of the major economies of Central Europe

A member of NATO and the European Union, the Czech Republic is one of the most developed and industrialized countries in Central Europe, having established trade relations primarily with the European Union, in particular with Germany and France. 
The country is rich in mineral resources, especially coal, lignite and uranium. The most important economic sectors are electrical equipment, the construction of automobiles and other means of transportation, the environment and construction. Its agri-food sector is distinguished by the production of world famous beers, such as Pilsner Urquell and Budweiser. 

A remarkable tourist destination 

Beyond being a city of immense beauty - whose historic center is inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List - the country's capital, Prague, is a cultural center at the crossroads of Slavic and Germanic cultures. The architecture, recognized for its towers and steeples, also includes the famous Prague Castle, the Charles Bridge, numerous palaces, churches, basilicas and renowned museums. Other must-see tourist cities are Karlovy Vary, with its hot springs, and the medieval buildings of Český Krumlov.
The influence of different peoples has created a very vibrant culture which is expressed in music, with famous composers such as Antonín Dvořák and Heinrich Biber, and in literature with Milan Kundera and Franz Kafka, to name but a few. Other big names in world culture and science were born in the Czech territory, such as Sigmund Freud, Gregor Mendel and Johann Palisa. 

Make a success of your stay in Czech Republic

Whether you are going to spend a few days with friends for a leisure trip or if you are on a business trip, nothing will be more useful to you than to be able to slip a few words in the language of your interlocutors, who will appreciate your effort and will be certainly more willing to help.

How to succeed in having good pronunciation within a week to a month?

The official language of the Czech Republic, but also spoken in communities in the United States, Canada and elsewhere, Czech has about 11 million speakers. Relatively close to Slovak and Polish, Czech is written in the Latin alphabet, enriched by diacritic marks on consonants and vowels. Although the language is considered difficult to learn, the pronunciation of Czech is phonetic, in that it is faithful to its spelling. It should also be known that the accent is almost always focused on the first syllable of the word.
