Language courses in Prague


Czech is the official language of the Czech Republic and is spoken by about 96% of the population. There are three distinct dialect regions:

  • Hana (central Moravian) region
  • Moravian-Slovak region (or the east Moravian region, including Moravian Wallachia)
  • Lassko (Silesian) region
Despite these differences, accents are not so great as to prevent Czech people from understanding each other. If you approach Czechs on the street in English, you should only expect about a 50/50 chance they will be able and willing to communicate. Russian is also widely understood in the older generation as it was taught under communism, but may not be popular.

There are a variety of institutes and methods for learning Czech.
