Based on real Czech course curricula, Novus Language can help anyone learn to speak Czech fluently.
Forget the games and gimmicks! We use proven language learning techniques that have been used to teach millions of people to learn a second language.
Czech is one of the 24 official languages of the Europian Union. With only approximately 12 million native speakers, Czech is a wonderful language to learn if you want to try something unique yet recognized.
This Course limits its goals to acquiring a few practical phrases that would help the speaker resolve various every day life situations with some degree of success.
The lines of the American are short, succinct and their key parts can be easily memorized. The lines of the Czech on the other hand are unadulterated and they represent closely a probable response of a native speaker. Bearing the complexity of the Czech's responses in mind, students are expected to study them for the purpose of understanding only, so they can develop reasonably good comprehension skills. Unlike the American's lines, they are not to be memorized or learned to a point of instant reproduction.
Even though the grammar is presented in very elementary form, to gain some understanding of "what is actually going on", the purpose of various structural drills is strictly limited to practical objectives only. In other words, the Language Notes may provide a general outline of the accusative case, but the students are expected to learn its endings only for the nouns considered useful rather than to try to master the entire case.
A special attention should also be paid to the list of "Key lines" extracted from the dialogues and listed toward the end of each lesson. These in combination with several useful variants constitute the crux of each lesson and should be thoroughly mastered because they can make a difference between success or failure when handling a specific situation.
