Česká konverzace.. I apologies if there is a thread like this already.. The idea is, for us non-native speakers to practise our Czech with each other! It should be a good way to learn. The format: When you write in Czech, or you respond to someone (continuing the conversation), you use bold writing. If you are helping someone by correcting something they wrote, you do it at the end of your post, and in normal writing or italics. Some guidelines: It's a good idea to write what you can without any books or help first, and then correct yourself afterwards - Let's give ourselves a chance to recognize mistakes, because we won't have the chance to correct them with a book in real life! It is okay to pair off or focus talking to people who are on the same level as you. (I've only just started!) But let's keep it to the thread so we can all learn from each other! Act like you would in real life somewhat, if you want to say something, and you can't, try something! Then ask about it afterwards. I'll start... Jmenuji se Rebecca. Jsem Irka. Mluvim anglisky a trochu irštína a ňemičina. Učím se česky. Jak se jmenujete? Kde je doma? Co mluvite? Questions: Is it correct that names of languages do not get a capital letter in Czech? I want it to be clear that i speak English and just a bit of Irish and German, did I make it sound like I thought i had good German? Should it be Učím se čeština, and why or why not? When do you use the "ina" and when the "sky" ? In doing this I realized that I can ask someone what their hobbies are but not what their name is!!! I wanted to say where are you from.. I think I said "where is house... "I imagine that would be quite frightening for people. >_< At the end I wanted to say "What languages can you speak?" Did it work at all?
