How long have you been learning Czech? What have you been focusing on? What are your priorities? Learning just the grammar and vocabulary is not enough. Today we have two tips for you how to improve your language learning experience and your result.
Of course it’s good to acquire new word or a phrase but if the native would never use it, why learning it? The tip n°1 is: compare to reality, learn what people really say, learn the real Czech. Because most people will not say “To je krásná dívka” or “Omluvte mě, odskočím si”.
Tip n°2 – Understand the Czech culture. This is so important! Do you want to fit into Czech culture and make Czech friends? You need to know Karel Gott, burčák, dvanáctku or that ČD means also “čekej dlouho”.
