Czech words

I’ve been keeping a vocabulary notebook where I add new Czech words I see and hear (those the “m” words I’ve collected so far in th. I also recently bought a book of poems. I’ve translated one full poem so far using a bilingual dictionary and google translate. It was a very slow process, but I learned a dozen new words just from that one poem. My goal is to translate one poem every month as a way to build my vocabulary. I’ll also be taking Czech classes twice a week through my school so that should help with learning the language!
