How Well do You Know the Czech Republic? & Sweepstakes Results (Jak dobře znáte Českou republiku a výsledky soutěže)

A couple of months ago we announced a new sweepstakes with one history question. We did not realize how many people would respond to this article. The question was either very easy or all of our readers know about the history of the Czech Republic. Since we wanted to be fair, we went through all the results and verified the CzechFolks.com membership. Then we had to put in a pool of hundreds of emails to select one winner that will receive a mug and a T-shirt of a choice from our partner ABC imports. We were so pleasantly surprised by the overwhelming response by our readership that we decided to select one more winner that will receive a T-shirt of a choice. ABC imports also wanted to thank to all the readers that answered our question for the sweepstakes. They all will receive a code to redeem $5 cash back on their purchase from the partner’s site. We hope to start a new drawing soon, thus stay tuned for our new postings. Continue reading

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.

Our sweepstakes has ended and we have selected two winners of the DVD I Served the King of England. The drawing was quite difficult. As many of you already know, we randomly selected two winners right at the end of the sweepstakes (March 11th). Unfortunately, one of the winners of this contest was disqualified for living outside the USA, and we did not hear from the other one.
Yesterday, we decided to go for a more fun selection process that involved all the CF subscribers. The two fastest responders were awarded with the prize and here are their names:
