Does anyone have any resources for someone accustomed to learning foreign language, but no experience in Czech or, for that matter, any of the slavic languages
my history is french for four years in HS , and entering my fifth year(1st in uni, and most likely a french major), and two years of latin (not contiuning)
Are you in the Czech Republic?
I only dabbled in Czech when I when there, just before communism fell (it was few of communist states where you were always aware you were in a commmunist state). The resources were very sparse, as Czech is not exactly in high demand.
I was quite pleased (and the Czechs in utter shock) that I could pronounce Řhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C5%98
correctly according to their ears.
You can go through the wikipedia articles, which are accurate enough if not full enough, to get an idea of what you are getting yourself into, and then go on (if you still want) to Routledge's essential languagehttp://books.google.com/books?id=huHvHt6hIGoC&printsec=frontcover&dq=Czech+a+grammar&hl=en#v=onepage&q=Czech%20a%20grammar&f=false
