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. It has established trade relations primarily with the European Union, particularly 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 capital of the Czech Republic, 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 include Karlovy Vary, known for its hot springs, and the medieval buildings of Český Krumlov.

The influence of different peoples has created a vibrant culture expressed in music, with famous composers such as Antonín Dvořák and Heinrich Biber, and in literature with Milan Kundera and Franz Kafka. Other significant figures in world culture and science, such as Sigmund Freud, Gregor Mendel, and Johann Palisa, were born in Czech territory.

Make a Success of Your Stay in the Czech Republic

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

How to Succeed in Having Good Pronunciation Within a Week to a Month?

The official language of the Czech Republic, Czech is also spoken in communities in the United States, Canada, and elsewhere, with about 11 million speakers worldwide.

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.
