Polish

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.


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.
