Czech language courses at Echo

Due to its complexity, we may assume that Czech is a difficult language. Its complexity is due to the morphology, noun and adjective inflexion, as well as verb conjugation.

The order of words in a sentence is variable and hence the level of difficulty.

Phonetics and phonology of the Czech language can be very difficult to speakers of other languages. For example, words do not have apparent vowels, and consonants also fill the role of vowels.

Czech was also influenced by a large number of languages, especially Slavic, Latin and German.

Czech is spoken by approximately 10 million people, both on Czech territory, as well as in other countries where Czech migrants arrived, most of them being in the USA.
