These lessons in Czech are wider-ranging in their nature, and are driven towards students who have a variety of differing needs. All beginner students will expect to study enough survival Czech to get them through a short visit to the country, those staying on with the lesson can progress differently, depending on their individual requests and requirements. Whether you are buying property in a foreign country, married to a foreign national, planning a round-the-world trip, interested in Czech history and culture, or if you simply want to attain a particular level of Czech, this is the choice for you.
Czech lessons of this type are aimed towards those that need to learn Czech to aid them with their employment. For those just starting out, it is integral to learn basic greetings and business etiquette; and reading and writing can be adopted once the simple precepts are out of the way. Success has come from students who are involved in import/export, international negotiations and acquisitions, those seeking jobs in multinational companies, and those working with foreign colleagues, academia and bureaucracy. Just our most basic beginners lesson will have the student finishing the lesson with basic telephone/e-mail skills in Czech, as well as survival Czech should a short stay in the country be needed.
The Czech lessons are also available for 2 or more people studying together (Two-to-One Czech Lesson or Small Group In-Company Czech Lesson). All participants must have the same level, the same business or general language needs and be able to study at the same time in the same location. The booking must be made for all participants at the same time. Listen & Learn do not recommend group classes of more than 6-8 people although In-Company Taster Czech Lessons can be run with up to 12 people.
Czech has three main dialects - Common, Moravian and Silesian Czech. In terms of grammar they are all very similar, but pronunciation differs
Most Slovaks are able to understand Czech, and vice versa - the languages are very similar in form
Non-native speakers often have problems with Czech pronunciation; mainly because several words have no vowels, like 'zmrzl', which means 'frozen'

MadisonWhen most people think of Wisconsin cities, only Milwaukee comes to mind. But it is Madison that may actually be the heart and soul of 'cheese country' (as the locals like to call it). Listed regularly on 'Best American Cities to Live' lists, Madison, Wisconsin is one of the most unique towns in the United States. Surrounded by more conservative areas, Madison is an oasis of 'thinking differently' and political involvement. Madison is the capital city of Wisconsin and is home to the state's biggest and best university, The University of Wisconsin. Known for its liberal politics and wild Halloween parties, Madison is also a hub of knowledge, with thousands of professors and research scientists setting up shop there each year. Progressive thinkers thrive in Madison, which means that it is an outstanding city to learn any language from French to Farsi and everything in between.
