Even Americans have trouble understanding some local accents. :roll:
There are some very heavy accents in parts of New England, Southern USA and Texas, for example.

Ann Cook(author of a book American Accent Training) just released a new book: American Accent Training:Grammar. I don't have it yet but it seems that this book could be great to improve English grammar. Have a look at this:

That looks like a great book if you are trying to improve your English (grammar, listening and reading comprehension).
Does a similar book exist for learning Czech: a book that combines grammar, reading exercises and listening exercises (on CD of course)?

I will try to find a textbook for learning Czech that combines written and spoken Czech but I think there will be no such book. Because Czech is not an international language... But if I find such book I will let you know
