Mluvíš česky? Chceš hovořit?

Omlouvám se, nemluvím česky.

It's on my list of languages to learn, but preliminary study has shown it to be pretty damn complicated, so it's on the back burner.

Jak se mas seems to get me by in these parts. =)

Well, there are seven cases for the nouns, including the vocative, more than most other Slavic languages, but on the other hand, when you learn the vocative, you go around for the next few weeks addressing inanimate objects and bugs, which is pretty cool. My problem is that I know the grammar, but my vocabulary is very weak, thus the desire for practice.

I have to point out that Serbian also has 7 cases. I'd recommend learning Serbian just for the pronunciation goodness. ;)

I am Czech, so if you need some help or if you just want to talk in Czech, there is no problem.
Jsem z Česka, takže jestli potřebujete pomoct nebo si jen chcete popovídat česky, není problém.

Ahoj!
Já nemluvím hodně česky.

I love how in Czech the word for table is stůl. Coincidences like that crack me up.

Na shledanou.

Ahoj!
I just begin to learn Czech, I was wondering if you could help me if I ever need it
At the point I don't think I'm having any problem but one: what Oni means? I'm not sure if it's like You (in a formal way) or you in plural or what, because it's different from ty
Sorry if I have a bad English, it's not my native language, but I'm trying to improve it (any suggestions will be taken :oops:).

Oni = They. :) If you want to say You(in a formal way), you use "Vy", and if you want to say You(in plural), you also say "Vy". :D

If you mean how it sounds like stool, that's actually most likely not a coincidence (aside from how well the actual pronunciations coincide). Together with the German word Stuhl ('chair') and other examples, it probably goes back to Proto-Indo-European *stālo, with a related meaning of 'to stand'.
