Understanding Czech Language, Literature and Linguistics

About this event

For an English speaker, learning Czech can be a challenging task because of its complex grammar and tricky pronunciation. However, it is also a fantastic way of reconnecting with your Czech heritage. In this online discussion, Jakub Smyčka, Polaron’s Project Coordinator for Czech & Slovak citizenship, will share with us the history of Czech language, literature and linguistics.

Jakub will be discussing:

  • History and linguistics of the Czech language
  • Differences and similarities to the English language
  • Czech literature
  • Moving to the Czech Republic as an English speaker
