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 instance, is an easy exercise that you can practice often and at anytime throughout the day.
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 EuropeA 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 destinationBeyond 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 RepublicWhether 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.

Csenge : Hi Tracy, "ahoj" is informal and used between friends.
David B. : I'm an American living in Brazil for almost 50 yrs....My 1st time in Prague last year and loved it! Determine to add Czech to my English and Portuguêse.. excellent site!!Having a slower pronunciation after the normal one would help immensely...but even so Congrats on the great job!
Clóvis Caio da Costa : Fantástico, gostei muito do website. Gostaria de saber se tem algum material in pdf? Agradeço Fantastic, this website is fantastic I would like to know if you have this material in pdf? Thank you Loecsen: : PDF & Mp3 to download
Molly : What a great website! I was super disappointed when Duolingo didn’t offer Czech but this is obviously the next best thing! The words slower do tend to get a bit blurred thought but other than that great job! Thanks so much :)
Janie : My new boyfriend is from the Czech Republic so I came to this site to see if I could learn his language but it looks difficult and he speaks fairly good English so I think I'll just leave it at that and get the occasional "word of the day" from him. They do breed some gorgeous men there tho. He's a HUNK! 😊
Hamza Alghabra : I like this website! I have learned a lot of stuff in Czech using this website! But please either make the words slower, or make a youtube channel teaching special topics! (with ads)
Maya : This is a very good website. I am still having lots of trouble learning this language. I think that you should maybe have it being slower so that people can get those sounds and words better.
Thomas George Bohdal : Wonderful website look forward to learning the dialect in an appropriate setting and knowing that this is possible with faith
[email protected] : My father is Bohemian. his great grandfather came from the country of Bohemia in 1868. So my Dad has me to learn the song of the Maypole and my Grandmother taught me some and I need to refresh my knowledge as I learned three words. So this will help alot.
Dr Dawar Chughtai : I incidentally found this website. I think it is an enormous effort in lingo learning and understanding with correct accents.
