The Czech Language
A center for literature, film, theatre, and the arts, the Czech Republic is also home to the Czech language. Spoken by 10.6 million people, Czech is the official language of the country. The Czech alphabet is considered the model for other Slavic languages like Polish, Ukrainian, and Russian.
It uses the Latin alphabet and contains 42 letters, some of which use diacritic marks. Though the majority of Czech-speakers live in the Czech Republic, others live in Germany, Poland, Slovakia, and even Wisconsin, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, and Texas in the United States.
