I would like to either learn Czech or Slovak

I found your website on the internet. I am of Slovak descent and would like to either learn Czech or Slovak. I plan to visit there next summer. Can you provide advice. My father attended Charles University in Prague.

Thank you.

Czech local contacts / assist for new student

Andrea & BayCzech group,

I came across your name on the BayCzech website and I would appreciate any assistance you can suggest.

I am sponsoring my cousin in Czech Republic to come study here on a student visa. She is set for Las Positas College in Livermore (I live in Pleasanton) and she has completed all of her visa application paperwork. Her embassy interview is next week on Wednesday.

I'm wondering if your group includes any Czech students or members who might have any suggestions for a successful interview from their experience?

Also, I'm interested to know if there are members or other Czech contacts in the East Bay area who might help welcome her after she comes in December. She is fairly fluent in English. Las Positas College does not have any Czech students currently, so looking for options that may help ease any adjustment or for social contacts.



Czech language tutoring

Hello! I'm writing in the hope that you can help me find someone who would be willing to provide me with some very basic instruction in the Czech language. I would just like to have some idea of the alphabet and pronunciation, to start with, but I have no idea where to find someone to teach me.

I can be reached by phone (510-289-2288) or via email at any time. I hope to hear from you soon. Thank you so much for your kind assistance!
