The Czech language, which was formerly known as Bohemian, is a West Slavic language of the Czech-Slovak group belonging to the Indo-Germanic language family. There are over 10 million Czech speakers and it is the official language in the Czech Republic.
Like many other Indo-Germanic languages, Czech is a fusional language, meaning that the endings of words define several characteristics of the word. Furthermore, it consists of seven cases and three genders making it even trickier to learn for beginners.
The pronunciation in Czech is according to the writing, so each letter stands for a single sound. Once you have learned to pronounce all the letters, you will find the pronunciation and reading easy.
The Czech language uses the Latin alphabet. However, there are additional letters with the hacek symbol: á, é, í, š, ž, č, ř, and ň. These letters are used to express sounds in Czech that cannot be represented by Latin letters and are also used to differentiate between the different vowels.
