Going insane waiting for Čeština
I've waiting desperately for several months and since the tree got locked I've been czeching the discussions and the incubator several times a day. Hopefully just a little while longer.
I won't be able to start the course until this winter, so I cope well with waiting, but I am incredibly excited about Czech. I have bad luck with Duolingo since it does not provide the languages I am truly interested in, and with Czech it would be the first time that Duolingo hits the point!
Well, I am Russian and it is just interesting to learn how another Slavic languages work. We live not especially far away from the Czech border at the moment. Sometimes we even cross it during our hiking trips, and I hope that in the future we'll be able to have longer trips in the country, I have "really" and not occasionally been there only once so far and it was cosy. And I like the old songs of Karel Gott :D
I like Polish too, but the inner chemistry makes me tend towards Czech.
Well, maybe the latter things he has been doing are more Germany oriented, for the Schlager lovers. But I listen only to the songs from the sixties and maybe earlier seventies which were not Schlager but rather... Eastern block Rock'n roll, and these were very popular among my mom's generation in the USSR :)
Yes, so true! The parsley comment does not make sense to me in English whatsoever, but I'm sure it's genius writing in Czech. :) It's funny you mention that flag scene - earlier I was talking to my mom about it and was explaining to her about the meaning of the word красный! meaning beautiful, and the word krásnej meaning red. I figured they were talking past each other with that. My favorite scene is when little Kolya is bathing and "talking" to his grandma, using the shower head as a phone. I cry like a baby every time I watch that scene.
You can listen to this Czech Classical Music meanwhile: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qRvrUUqd3hElist=PLt0_z8KLucSvalEyp75WhBCyd_Tyq5qZw
Yes. I really appreciated the weekly update. And they finished it just around the deadline they had set. Reading through the comments I get a feeling this was one of the most dedicated teams.
I saw that the Hindi course had new contributors. Maybe the progress will be faster now.
