This book is the introductory volume to a series of universal textbooks for studying Czech as a foreign language. The series is titled Česky, prosím, which means "Czech please".

The lessons cover all language skills: reading, writing, speaking and listening. The book is accompanied by a CD with listening exercises.
The author has been teaching Czech as a foreign language at prestigious institutions since 1982.
