Enter to Win Free Language Courses (Zapojte se do soutěže o jazykové kurzy zdarma)

A Czech proverb “Kolik reci vis, tolikrat jsi clovekem,” or in Slovak “Kolko reci vies, tolkokrat si clovekom,” can be literally translated as “As many languages as you know makes you that many times more of a person.” Basically it means that the number of languages you know makes you that number of times more of a person. So how many languages do you know? The golden rule is that you should know a little bit about the culture and language of the country you are visiting or moving to. The more you explore and learn about the country, its citizens and their culture, the more they will help you to understand the differences that could surprise you upon your arrival to a foreign country.

(www.icm.cz)

Two weeks ago we announced the official celebration of the Czech Republic assuming the EU presidency. We also provided you with the first video that described a summary of the initial activities associated with this rotation. Since some of you would like to keep up with the series, we have created a whole page that will be updated with each new sequence. You can, of course, find the videos at the Czech TV website in the section iVysilani. Unfortunately, the videos are mostly for Czech or Slovak native speakers since we are not able to provide periodic translations for all the videos. We will, however, keep you updated in our English/Czech articles in the future.
