I just started czech a few hours ago and i love it already.

I like the way Duolingo has put it out to learn, in the separate levels of masculine, feminine, and neuter, also we had a german couchsurfer here and he said i roll my r's too much for german, (apparently i sound like a Russian trying to pronounce german words, which was a complement because i love russian too),so czech is perfect for me. I think.

That's awesome! Czech is really a beautiful and, in my opinion at least, a very elegant language. Have fun with it!

My grandmom is from the Czech Republic, therefore she speaks fluently Czech, and my dad can also speak Czech, so I figured it was my turn to learn the language. I think it's very difficult tho O.O I am excited though! - Does anyone have some good advice when learning Czech?

Have fun and enjoy it. I think I make the biggest progress when I enjoy what or how I learn something. For example I came across the sentence "Kolik jazyků umíš, tolikrát jsi člověkem" in one of my czech books for A1/A2 over a year ago and I put no effort in remembering that sentence or what it means, it just got stuck in my head the moment I've read it because I liked the sound of it and it's poetic feel. Another example would be learning cases. I did'nt want to learn them by having one word for each paradigm which I'ld repeat over and over again, so I started working on a program that builds each case for "every" word (I'm not finished) given the paradigm it follows and while I have barely used it, I still remember how to build them.

Good to know, thanks, maybe they didn't want to introduce unnecessary vocab at the time.

As much as I love the Czech language, I find it hard to understand. Part of that might be because I haven't devoted enough time to it, but y'know ¯_(ツ)_/¯
