Eastern Europe

Russian is probably the most important language to learn. Many older people speak or at least understand Russian, especially when their mother tongue is a Slavic language. The second most important language is probably Polish, since it is widely understood in Czech Republic, Slovakia, Lithuania and Ukraine.

Czech

Czech is an incredibly difficult language to learn, but learn these few phrases and you will get around the country a lot more easily, especially outside cities.

Even names of towns can be pronounced incorrectly very easily. Consider the name of the town Olomouc, which is pronounced ollo-moats. For more information about pronouncing see the Czech phrasebook on Wikivoyage.


I don't speak Czech - Nemluvím Český [naym-loo-veem ches-kee]

Do you speak English? - Mluvíte Anglicky? [mloo-vee-teh an-glits-kee]

Hello (formal) – Dobrý den [dob-ree den]

Hello (informal) – Ahoj! [a-hoy]

Help! – Pomoc! [poh-moats]

I understand - Rozumím [roz-oo-meem]

I don’t understand – Nerozumím [nay-roz-oo-meem]

It’s also worth remembering that in Czech the emphasis is nearly always on the first syllable of a word, and hardly ever on its second or third syllable.

Numbers one - jeden / jedna / jedno two - dva / dvě three - tři four - čtyři five - pět six - šest seven - sedm - pronounced "sedum" eight - osm - pronounced "osum" nine - devět ten - deset eleven - jedenáct twelve - dvanáct thirteen - třináct fourteen - čtrnáct fifteen - patnáct sixteen - šestnáct seventeen - sedmnáct - pronounced "sedumnáct" eighteen - osmnáct - pronounced "osumnáct" nineteen - devatenáct twenty - dvacet twenty one - dvacet jedna twenty two - dvacet dva twenty three - dvacet tři thirty - třicet forty - čtyřicet fifty - padesát sixty - šedesát seventy - sedmdesát - pronounced "sedumdesát" eighty - osmdesát - pronounced "osumdesát" ninety - devadesát one hundred - sto two hundred - dvě stě three hundred - tři sta four hundred - čtyři sta five hundred - pět set
