    What a coincidence! That you should be learning Czech, that is. The book will be on its way soon! Congratulations again; and thanks.

    Thanks for the writeup! Yes, all the illustrations are original to the site. The one with Russian text is playing off the the illustrated word (“to repeat”) and the fact that Czechs were required for many years to learn Russian in school. Trivia: I copied the Russian word off a candy wrapper. A lot of the drawings have some pretty obscure associations 🙂

    Oh, and you can also click the words to see the translations.

    @ johno: Well, dabbling in it any way… 😉

    @ Owen: I’m so glad you found the post. Thanks for the background on your website (note that I got caught up in looking at all the illustrations rather than clicking on the words: ha!). Like I said, the illustrations are fun, and it’s great to find a resource for learning the language.

    heh – it’s cool to see such things :). But to tell you the truth – don’t learn Czech – it’s complete waste of time. We don’t have that many nice things here – except for girls (Yep – the most beautiful in the world. We don’t even have big mountains like Alps – and abnove all… we have no sea!!!:O

    Oh, come on: the Czech’s have Plenty of nice things! Kolaches, dumplings, Mucha, robots, Kafka, great architecture…and I’m dabbling in it for sentimental reasons. 3 out of 4 of my grandparents grew up speaking Czech, but unfortunately had to lost the language when they started public school. 😀

    Sweet: thanks for the links! Although, I’m still on the very basics: pronouns, etc., these should definitely help on listening comprehension.
