Some facts about Czech:
— The Czech language developed from the Proto-Slavic language at the close of the 1st millennium AD. The Slovak language is the closest relative to Czech. Czech and Slovak people, generally, can understand each other without additional language training.
— Primary word stress is on the first syllable. The Czeck sound system features a lot of words that do not have vowels. The consonants ‘l’ and ‘r’ are the nucleus of a syllable in Czech (adding a reduced vowel sound when speaking).
— Czech has the grammar system that is typical for the Slavic languages: systems of declensions and conjugations, fusionality, and a big number of exceptions.
— Like many other Slavic languages, the Czech language is abundant with “false friends” for Russians — words that are close by pronunciation, often have directly opposite meaning: “ovoce” — fruit (not vegetables), “čerstvý” — fresh (not stale), “pozor” — attention (not shame), etc.
