Improve Your Czech With Jokes 1


Improve Your Czech With Jokes is an excellent tool for foreigners who are trying to learn Czech. It is not for complete beginners but you’ll be surprised how little Czech you need to understand the jokes.

Here is an example – and note the vocabulary support in blue at the bottom of the joke.

Chlapec: Miluješ mĕ?
Dívka: To víš, že tĕ miluji.
Chlapec: Jak dlouho mĕ budeš milovat?
Divka: Navždycky.
Chlapec: Co to znamená navždycky?
Dívka: Asi týden.

navždycky – forever

If you’re struggling, there’s a translation on the following page.
Boy: Do you love me?
Girl:Of course I love you.
Boy: How long will you love me for?
Girl: I will love you forever.
Boy: How long is forever?
Girl: About a week.
