Well, if you'd like to start with other resources and want a native Czech exchange partner, I'd be excited to help :-)

I am eagerly awaiting the launch of Czech on DuoLingo, it was estimated to Launch on 21st August 2017, but when I looked at the site today it is estimated to launch in 2024 "Estimated launch: 4/8/24"

I hope that 2024 is an error and that it the launch hasn't been delayed by seven years.

There is a post somewhere that explains the dates are automatically generated. In that post, the Czech crew actually explains what they're doing and why it's taking so long. They've found voices and are adding them to the lessons, and last I read they'd closed all units but one. However, if the date has moved out, it may be that they're reopened some units. They were expecting to be done the latter part of August or early September, but that may have changed.

And it still says Sept 1, which was two days ago. But it is free, and great -- so, worth the wait!

Apparently the latest news is that the Czech team has finished all lessons; it's up to the Duolingo team now, so it's really close.

Incidentally, the team expected the tree to be released on August 21st, which corresponded to the North American total solar eclipse. When that didn't happen, a team member sarcastically changed the date to April 2024, which is the next North American eclipse.

I LOVE the new Czech course. The contributors did an amazing job, and the grammar explanations are very thorough but not too technical (I think).

I really hope they will release it earlier but still better later than never. I know some Czech but I still would love to have a Czech course here. It's a beautiful language.

Hope they get done early! My auntie grew up speaking only Czech until she went to school, so I want to learn some and surprise her. She's very old now, and I'd love to get the chance to have some time with her talking about her childhood.

I can now learn Czech from Duolingo.com but not from the Duolingo iPhone app. (When I tap Czech, I get Russian.) Does anyone know if/when Czech is supposed to be accessible on the iPhone app?

Czech is similar to Slovak and Polish. To lesser extent to other slavic languages. You can listen to various songs or speech on youtube. It is not an important language but it does have a culture associated to it,just like other national languages of several million native speakers. There are approximately as many native Czech speakers as the Swedish ones, for example.
