Huge thanks to everyone who contributed to this. My father was born in CZS in 1950 and migrated to the US in '69 and I've always wanted to learn Czech or Slovak. This is a fantastic opportunity to finally do so. Thank you again!!!

If someone might have missed my posting in the DuoLingo sub-forum and HelpfulDuo Czech announcement thread:

HOWTO enable TTS audio for EN-CZ questions on L2 target language right hand side answers/solutions with the installation of Camilo's user script "DuoLingo tree enhancer": https://www.duolingo.com/comment/24321450$comment_id=24324257

This works for me on Windows and Firefox web browser.

It's great the course was finally released! Even though I'm a native speaker, I'm going to take the course and try to help others and/or point out mistakes and possible translations.

It's available already...sort of.

I can get into it on Android, but only for strengthening skills and NOT for doing new lessons. Here's what I did:

  • I opened the app--which was set on Spanish From English--then went into my browser (desktop) and change the course to Czech.

  • I tapped the barbell (strengthening) icon on the app, and it took me to a Czech lesson rather than Spanish. The Czech lesson had full functionality--sound, underlining for definitions, multiple-choice, etc.

  • However, this only works once, so you would have to repeat the above process for each time you wanted to do Czech on the app. Almost more trouble than it's worth, but it's a usable workaround until Czech is available for the app.

I did essentially the same thing for Romanian before it was released for the app, but it worked a lot better until the DL developers seemed to close a loophole or two: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/20417807

Until the Android App is live, I access it on my phone through my chrome browser and just use the web version. The formatting seems fine and it works almost as well.

Today I received an email from Duolingo:

>> " You’re on fire. Continue your 160 day Czech streak on Duolingo "

Hmm, ano, thanks and all, but ... I'm afraid my "streak" is not really a "Czech streak", y'know?

Where do I report this bug to Duo?

The TTS engine sounds a bit awkward at times, but as far as the layout is concerned, this might be the best Duolingo course yet.

Dear contributors, the course is awesome, thank you! I have a tiny problem in exercises where I have to type translation of a word: the button "check"doesn't get green after I type my translation, and the button "skip"doesn't allow me to skip it or report this problem. I'm kind of blocked, although I really want to continue with other exercises. Could you please tell me how to deal with it? Thanks in advance!

Někdo bydlí v Praze?

Proč?

I'm only curious how many Czech learners actually live in Prague. My wife and I usually study at CZLT.

Hello... this is an awesome course and I personally want to thank the contributors for their good job. I just cant wait for it to get to the app... I am just starting to learn Czech!! But at the moment I do not get the audio so it is kind of frustrating because I would like to learn the pronunciation of words. Is there a way to solve this? And does anyone know when this course will finally get to the app? Been waiting quite a while.. lol
