Czech Republic - Languages



Czech, which belongs to the Slavic language group, is the major and official language. In addition to the letters of the English alphabet, the Czech language has both vowels and consonants with acute accents (indicating length) and háceks: á, é, í, ó, ú, y´, c, dc, e, n, r, š, t, z, as well as u˚ (the circle also indicates length). In Czech, q, w, and x are found only in foreign words. There are numerous dialects. Many older Czechs speak German; many younger people speak Russian and English. Slovak is also spoken.

I am very interested in Czech culture and this is very helpful for my school project. It would be very helpful if you would explain why/when they started these languages.
