Giving thanks to the makers and maintainers of the Czech from English course.
Dobrý den! Since I've been using the Czech course on Duo since a year ago (to the day) to learn the language of my ancestors, I wanted to make a thread thanking VladaFu, nueby, and all others that made the Czech course possible and continue to give us answers to our questions. I imagine your work is thankless from how quickly learners move from one sentence to the next in the lessons, and also that Duo doesn't offer a direct messaging system, so let this be my open 'thank you' to all you folks do for us.
EDIT: This seems an appropriate place to link to a lesson's comments where learners have left thanking the creators and maintainers of the course: https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/24508236
Agreed 100% - not only is the course really well constructed, but the ongoing responsiveness of the moderators to discussion threads really helps to clear up some of the more mystifying concepts and generally keep morale up. AND with a sense of humour! I've progressed more in the past 3 months than the past 10+ years, trying all kinds of methods to learn the language properly. If Čeština is a national defence system, Duolingo is the trojan horse. THANKS!!!
I most heartily agree!! A lot of work has been put into this course. Although the Czech language frustrates me at times I do appreciate being able to benefit from this course. I am learning Czech from a teacher but this has also greatly improved my knowledge of Czech as well. I also love all the fun and sometimes crazy sentences added to make learning more fun. For example: "Nemám dost víno" which gives me an excuse to buy some good Moravian wine. ;)
Congratulations on a year jgreenemi. I am a little over a year and it has been well worth my time.
