František, what is?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

A name. A Czech person with a typical name.

another name would be Frank (or Frankie as a diminutive) so, old Frank or old Frankie should be acceptable as a translation

The lessons ask not to translate the names. If you are missing the accents, just omit them and it should be accepted as a typo.

For the ones saying that this is wrong or not useful, From now on i will call my friend "Francisco" aka Francis...Frantisek Thanks Duo!

Stary is correct but shouldn't František be man or male?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/VladaFu

I do not understand. Please stay clearly the translation you want.

Who knows what a František is?

It's just the Czech variant of Francis, Francisco, François, etc.

I really appreciate the work the team has done on Czech. I’m wondering though, if perhaps it would be better to use a noun in place of proper names? Something like “old man” or “old woman” “old house” etc would be more helpful vs copying and pasting a name.

Why not learning some Czech names? It's useful too. I learned John and Magaret when I started to study English.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Kayaaa3

Duo shouldn't put names in a listening exercise when the name has never been used/seen before.

I think that should be true for all words. However, that is really something out of control for the course developers.
