Dear learners and story-lovers!
If you enjoy reading short stories and learning languages, you have come to the right place!
This course is designed for learners who would like to improve their Czech through entertaining real-life stories that happened in Prague. These funny, heartwarming stories took place during awkward situations or even embarrassing encounters in public places (transportation, streets, or the park).
Here, I present it in the colloquial Czech as they originally happened. I selected fifteen stories from a book titled Odposlechnuto v Praze (Overheard in Prague) and explained everything you need to know about the language and the culture to understand and enjoy the story. Together, we will read anecdotes from humorous situations involving dogs, family members, faux-pas in the meeting, at a restaurant and on the tram. You might find yourself interested in the job of being a public transport ticket inspector.
Starting with a brief introduction telling you what the story is all about, I will read it out loud with the voice that will impersonalize the characters of the story. I will translate each part of the story and explain the metaphoric meaning vs the literal translation. Once you understand the story, we will learn the vocabulary and grammar. This will help you understand the Czech humor and what it means in our culture. I will be sure to show properly how the same humor can be used differently in new situations. Knowing me, be prepared to test your knowledge and squeeze a few minutes to practice after we are done with the story.
This course is for anyone who is interested in a humorous story-based language course, no Czech background is necessary. It is designed as a stand-alone product. For those who want to dig deeper, I would highly recommend my other course titled A Fantastic Journey Into the Czech Language & Culture.
Looking forward to the opportunity of working together through this course!
