Czech Conversation Guide

A little practical phrasebook of Czech language for all kinds of social interactions :)

We've put together a short list of useful phrases that might come in handy when you will discover the opportunities your new Czech home has to offer. Of course it can't replace a Czech language course, but it might be useful for breaking the ice when you're meeting new schoolmates and friends.
