Content of the E-BOOK
Learn Czech by reading
is a collection of short, simple and easy to read articles
on Czech culture in the Czech language.
Articles for intermediate level
The articles have been written especially for students at intermediate level, or B1-B2 on the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR).
If you are a learner of Czech, all of the texts will allow you to expand your vocabulary and will give you the tools to improve your grasp of the beautiful Czech language.
Worksheets and key
You’ll be provided with a set of comprehension questions in Czech in the worksheets, which will give you the chance to practice the new things you have learned in the text. Don’t worry if you don’t know one of the answers — a key is provided immediately after, but in order to benefit from them make sure not to cheat by looking too soon!
Finally, you can improve your listening comprehension using the audio files that accompany each chapter. I have recorded them to help you with tricky Czech pronunciation. You can use it either as preparation before your own reading or for checking the pronunciation of difficult words. In addition, consider repeating the audio many times to accustom yourself with the rhythm of spoken Czech as well as to reinforce your understanding of the text and new vocabulary and grammar.
As a language coach of Czech for Foreigners I enjoy the book very much, because my students love the topics, Eva included in the book. Not only we can discuss with my clients Czech culture in authentic stories written with love for Czech, but it also helps them to get to know Czech culture better and find something about our history. It can be also used as an additional reading material and a prompt for discussions in the lessons or just something they can enjoy reading at home.
