 Even though I can speak Czech no problem, and almost nobody recognises that Iím Slovak, writing Czech is not so easy. Czech and Slovak grammar are really quite different. Some teachers donít realise this, and treat me like a Czech - which Iím grateful for, really! Iím no great shakes at Czech lessons.
Dictation tests are a nightmare for me. And I donít know how to write essays. Some teachers donít mind if I write in Slovak, which is great. On the other hand I do want to learn how to write in Czech, so I try to practice it. The worst bit is always having to explain that the reason I make so many mistakes in essays is because Czech isnít my native language and Iíve only been using it actively for a few years Ė itís not because Iím thick!
