The Czech language is spoken by 12 million people, in 12 different countries, and is one of the 23 official languages of the European Union. The Czech language is classified as a Western Slavic language, and has several distinct dialects: Common Czech, which is spoken mostly in Bohemia; Moravian Czech, spoken in Moravia; and Silesian Czech, spoken in Ostrava. The Czech language is similar to the Slovakian language in terms of composition and grammar; therefore speakers of the Czech language share a passive bilingualism with speakers of the Slovakian language. Czech speakers and Slovakian speakers are mutually intelligible to one other. It is therefore worthwhile to learn the Czech language, as it can be utilized in countries that are not necessarily Czech-speaking. Contrary to conventional belief, the Czech language, while exceedingly complex, isn’t impossible to learn: through our flexible language training options, you will gradually be able to pronounce the vowel-free words peculiar to the Czech language, and even utter a raised alveolar non-sonorant trill.
