VŠECHNY LEKCE ZDE
After arriving in Prague unannounced, he wanted to "surprise" her, so he first spent the night with his American friend and decided to practice.
While having some beer and Becherovka, he pulled out his notebook from his class and began reading aloud various Czech phrases he had learned to pronounce and understand during the three months he had taken his Czech class.
WHAT are you "speaking"?
As his American friend listened, he had no reaction. He didn’t speak Czech, so he couldn’t comment.
However, a Czech woman was present, and she certainly did have some remarks about what was being spoken.
Her first question was: "What kind of Czech are you speaking?"
A "perfect" accent
As it turned out, the "instructor" who "taught" this wealthy American employee of Microsoft, didn’t really care about Czech accents.
She told not only him, but everyone else in the class that their "Czech" accents were "perfect."
The truth is, no one could pronounce the "ř" sound, (nor were they taught it), which is uniquely Czech.
Obviously, this sound is an entirely different one, and has nothing to do with Czech.
The highlight of the evening was when he discovered that "no" is short for "ano."
Until he visited Prague, he never knew this either, and of course this "teacher" never told him.
