    Hi, I'm Czech and I've just found this site, completely by accident, and I'm absolutely shocked (in a very good way, but I can't think of any other word) by how many people want to learn/are learning Czech. I think it's wonderful, because I love the Czech language. I thought I could help you in your learning, so if you want to have a Czech pen-pal, write me!

    I may well be contacting :) I'm quite excited to be having my first 'real' lesson on Thursday, then perhaps the reality of what I'm up against will sink in, but I'm back in Brno next month so hope to be able to give some locals a giggle when they hear my pronounciation ;-)

    My most recent giggle to the locals (well Czechs in the US) was when I called my husband "Tlusty Kava"

    Which means "Fat Coffee" I meant to say "Tlusty Krava" which means fat cow. However, I was told that I can't call a man a fat cow either because the word "krava" is female. The czech language can be so complicated I can't even call my husband a name!

    Haha, i can imagine your husband laughing after saying that. He'd be still laughing even though you'd say it correctly. It's sound just so funny to say to a male. lol

    Yeah, now he thinks he's so funny when he calls me "fat coffee" in English. :roll: :)
