Care to find out about the worst mistakes Czechs make when speaking English? Interested in knowing what native speakers find funny and what you have to watch out for when speaking or writing e-mails? Dare to set yourself apart from most other Czech students by keeping away from errors that make native English speakers cringe?
Czechisms are mistakes we make when we subconsciously transpose an expression from our mother tongue, Czech, into English discourse. They involve grammar, vocabulary, and even pronunciation. In most cases, we're not aware of these linguistic blunders. Some of them are amusing, others put us in a bad light, and yet others might prevent our interlocutor from understanding what we're trying to say.
This course is for all students who want to rid themselves of errors they make when speaking English. The course curriculum has been designed to help you fine-tune your English very fast and effectively.
