It is a relict many czechs still keep using.
Memrise appears to have quite a lot of courses for Czech learners but I don't know much about those. Thanks a lot! I think that I will add it to the buy list.. I found it, CT24 live , and it works. Harkins Once again, this is a fairly old course, !
I mention it because the audio files are available on the Celtie site. Although, generally speaking, I afford particular attention to negative reviews on Amazon, I would tend to discount the few negative ones on this particular series. I am using this one, it seems pretty good to me.
Quite dense too. That is, based on my experiences with Routledge Colloquial Polish, their Czech course is probably fairly thorough. It would probably take one to something approaching the A2 level provided one put in the necessary hours of study.
I suspect that the negative reviews reflect the opinions of English-speaking students who are not quite aware just how much of effort is required to learn a Slavic language.
Furthermore, I would expect that the audio recordings would be delivered at a speed approaching that of native speakers and that this can seem like an insurmountable barrier for some beginners. Ideme k Petrovi.
Ideme k bratovi. We are going to Peter's. We are going to my brother's. This is also the locative: Hovorime 0 Petrovi. We're talking about Peter. Varim Igorovi obed. I'm giving a book to Viera. I'm cooking lunch for Igor.
We're helping father. Exercise 1 C o si date? What will you have? Complete the following as suggested: 1 Mate. Exercise 3 Complete as indicated and translate into English: obed.
Pavol 3 Ideme k na veceru. Jozef 4 Hovorime 0. Je v parku. Poznate ho dobre? Vidim ho dosf casto v meste. Niekedy sa stretavame v hoteli Carlton a obedujeme spolu. Alebo sedime na namestf a hovorime 0 politike. Je to vefmi mudry. Nemoze pracovaf. Je vefmi inteligentna a mila. Nemoze chodif. Ak chcete. ZORA: Ones nemozem. ZORA: Nie. Mam radsej l'udovu a rockovu hudbu. ZORA: Do you know him well? I see him quite often in town. Sometimes we meet in the Carlton Hotel, and we lunch together.
He is lit.
It is a very wise, interesting person. She can 't work, because she is ill. She can 't walk, but she plays the piano lit. If you want, we can go there sometime on a visit. ZORA: I can 't today, but sometime yes, very gladly. ZORA: No. I prefer lit.
Note how the -um is dropped! Soft locative -i Some nouns have a final 'soft' consonant, i.
Often nouns in -r, -I also count as soft. These so-called soft nouns have a soft locative ending in -i except for male animate nouns which, as usual, have the ending -ovi, e. Ondrej - 0 Ondrejovi 'about Ondrej ' : gauc - na gauCi koberec - na koberd kufor - v kufri bicykel - na bicykli on the couch on the carpet in the suitcase on a bicycle Neuters ending in -e also count as soft: pole - v poli 'in the field'.
Neuters ending -ie have a long -I: namestie - na namestl 'on the square'. When na means 'on' it takes the locative, but when it means 'onto' with motion towards it takes the accusative: Kniha leZl na stole. Davam knihu na stol. The book is lying on the table. Marta ide do Presova. Marta is in Presov.
Notice how with some places you say oa 'on, onto': Sloveosko - Sme oa Sloveosku. We are in lit.
Ideme oa Sloveosko. We are going to lit. Morava - So oa Morave. They are in lit. Ido oa Moravu. They are going to lit. Ido oa postu. They're at the post office. They're going to the post office. Can Mad meaning 'to be able', 'can' is an e-type verb: mozem mozes moze I can you can he, she can mozeme we can you can mozete mozu they can -u: rhythmic law It is followed by infinitives: Mazes isf. Nemazem pracovaf. Mazeme cakaf.
You can go. I can't work. I'm not able to work. We can wait. Distinguish 'physical ability' from 'know how': Vies citaf. Mazes citaf. You can read i. Hard work! You may be living in a dom 'house', byt 'flat' in a panehik 'prefabricated block of flats', a hotel 'hotel', or maybe internat 'hall of residence'.
We hope it has strecha 'roof', dvere 'door s ', and at least one okno or oblok 'window', and maybe ustredne kurenie 'central heating'. To which we may add schody 'stairs', and garaz 'garage'.
