We need more Czechs living in Czech Republic

Postby magan » 24-Jan-04 8:19

I find that there is more foreigners on this Board than Czechs living in Czech Republic. It shows in reactions to questions as many of us are Czechs living in other countries. Would it be possible for some of our members who have time to search and find some local Czech discussion boards to invite Czechs to join us here?

As a Canadian living in the US as a resident I can understand your desire to connect with those of your own nationality. Every Canada day (July 1st) I go ice skating with some of my Canadian friends here in Texas! (they have indoor rinks). This seems to be the irony of our global village.

Anyhow... I just want to say thanks to all the Czechs on this message board who assist the rest of us with our questions. I hope we haven't over run your site.... and I hope more Czechs use this message board...

I am so looking forward to my first visit to the Republic this summer.

Hi all,

do not worry, there are maybe more Czech people on this web than you think :) I know 7 Czech friends who visit this web regularly. I think this pages are very useful for both nationalities. If you have any guestion from the Czech language, you can ask me !

Hi!
I agree.. there are really many Czechs who visit this site regularly. But if they are as lazy as me... well.. then you don' t hear much of them...Anyway...I' m still alive and follow the boards. The fact is that I' m in the US for the summer and have no time to go online every day.

I, too, was wondering if the forum had any Czechs (living in Czechoslovakia)! I thought perhaps that the average person there did not have a computer or computer availability. Does anyone know how common household computers are? Are they available in the libraries or schools?

I visited Prague two years ago. Fantastic!! ....But the economy still looked depressed. Someone told us the average wage was about $300 (American) a month.

I love reading the postings in this forum. I was born in Prague and we came to the US when I was young, but now that my parents are both gone, I find myself drawn back to my home country. Hello to all of you....

Computers are pretty common, but the internet connection is too expensive.

It's about 766 as of now.

No more Czechoslovakia, sorry.

As ts said, computers are quite common. I think most schoolchildren might now have (access to) one, at least some old Pentium-class machine.

Internet connection is quite expensive and the top-technologies are not widely available, but this is mostly due to our monopoly Telecom, and it is now getting better with all that wireless stuff.

I visited Prague two years ago. Fantastic!! ....But the economy still looked depressed. Someone told us the average wage was about $300 (American) a month.

According to my sources, the averagy salary in first quarter of 2004 was 16 722 CZK, which is now something over 700 USD. A month.
It was 15 857 in 2002, I do not remember the rate of USD in that time, but most likely "someone" was wrong - the long-term rate is between 25 and 35 CZK per dollar, so 300 USD might have been about 10 000 CZK in that time.

Be cautious, this is the "arithmetical average" - most people get less money - a thousand or two less, I guess, might be the mode salary.
I am an atheist. Thank God.

I joined because I am interested in things to do with the Czech culture ect, and to learn. I am English and from the UK, and find this site a wealth of knowledge. Other nationalities, with or without connections to CR can learn about the country and culture from people from that country, it is very helpful, especially if people are planning to travel there.

In my case it is interesting learning about differing cultures! Although I know what you mean, I think there are far more CR members residing in CR than you think. They are possibly just not divulging their location in their profiles.

Why are not so many Czechs living in the Czech Republic joining this chat? They are enjoying their life instead of sitting in front of the computers. They invest more time into family and friends. Currently, I am living in the States, and I have hard time to find people with similar interests and free time on their hands. I wouldn't be sitting here either if I wouldn't have to work on my research paper. I would be sitting with my fellow Czechs here in the US and make smoked kolbasas.
