    It's really difficult to chose just one. Can I chose three? In Czech:

    Zmrzlina - Ice Cream (Probably my favorite)

    Král - King

    Zrcadlo - Mirror

        It's a very pretty language. Slavic languages sound beautiful to me. I'm taking classes in college. The Slavic department offers Bulgarian, Czech, Polish, Russian and Slovenian.

          I'll still anxiously await for the Czech course to be released on Duolingo though. They are, I would like to learn a few.

          I am learning polish, and my favorite words are "księżniczka" because of how it's different from the other slavic languages (and also sounds beautiful) and "chrząszcz" because of its hard spelling. I also like the verb "potrzebować", it sounds like Russian to me. And of course I think "Grzegorz Brzęczyszczykiewicz" is a fun word.

          LOL, you reminded me of a comment I put in one of the lessons. I love "Kobieta" (woman) as it's the only Polish word I seem to know how to spell, LOL. I just started Polish yesterday by the way.

          My main language is French, so I love the Frenchy sounding words: souris (mouse), chaussette (sock), cerise (cherry), soixante (sixty), abeille (bee), poubelle (trash can). They sound so beautiful I may name my child one of these (if I get a child). I just won't tell her that her name means "trash can" in French, haha.

          Never thought that trash can sounds good in French.

          Good luck with your French studies and your Polish. Learning Polish may be hard at times, but you will also enjoy it. It is a very rich language.
