Eri feedback czech lessons online slowczech Lab picture

Eri, from Japan

I got exposure to daily Czech life.

I joined Slowczech lab as I wanted expose myself to Czech everyday and it has been great! I can interact with lecturers and other students by just opening Discord (application) and there, I could build my vocabulary and keep my motivation up. I highly recommend it if you are looking for some everyday tools to learn Czech with.

Tonia, from USA

The premium content helps me tremendously.

I’m definitely enjoying the premium content and diving deeper into each topic. I like that different teachers have a bit different style / approach to creating their content. It keeps it interesting. Honestly, you guys have a great team and I almost always find the content engaging, enjoyable, interesting, funny, helpful and / or adorable.

Many learners face the same struggles:

  1. Speaking and understanding the authentic Czech, beyond just textbook exercises.
  2. Finding it hard to give a clear direction to their learning.
  3. Struggling to immerse themselves fully in the Czech language.
  4. Difficulty connecting with family and family-in-law, in Czech.
  5. Establishing a consistent learning routine with engaging content.
  6. Moving beyond theoretical knowledge to practical language use.
  7. Engaging actively in real conversations and everyday situations.
  8. Accessing structured materials that allow for self-paced learning yet offer tutor support and peer interaction.

Já to mám stejně, taky nejím maso (jenom ryby), takže českou kuchyni moc nemusím. Ale souhlasím, že svíčková (bez masa) je moc dobrá! Taky mám ráda koprovku (koprovou omáčku). Znáte ji? Obvykle k ní dáváme buď knedlíky, nebo brambory. A říká se, že Češi ji buď nenávidí, nebo milují 😅 Já ji miluju! Měla jsem ji teď o víkendu, moje máma mi ji uvařila k narozeninám 🤍

When I first joined slowczech Lab, I was a bit confused in Discord. But with help of Maruška, now I use Discord daily - I write, I read. All in Czech. When I want to connect with the language, I just open Discord.

Ivan, from 

"Little portion of Czech whenever I want!"

I live abroad so I don't have many opportunities to listen to Czech and use it. I appreciate the option to be able to get in touch with the language just whenever and wherever I want to.

With slowczech, we aim to provide you with a similar atmosphere: a warm, welcoming space to meet fellow learners and practice your Czech in a no-pressure setting. Enjoy! :)

Eliška

business, mother, polyglote

I am slowczech founder and from my experience I know two things: beginners can understand words with time. And enjoyable input is vital for natural language acquisition. Many give up Czech due to old methods, irrelevant vocabulary or overwhelming grammar. Let’s change that and make learning Czech exciting and effective.
