I've visited my home country for the end of the year. And of course I went to a bookstore (got a few czech scifi books etc),and noticed a new series of coursebooks. They look a bit thin, but they officially go up to C1. Here is a video presenting them:

The name is a bit stupid, "Czech it out", but they are trying to make a modern thing from start to C1.

Perhaps it will be useful to some of you.

A small remark for people considering the Czech It UP series: there is an answer key, but you have to go to their web page to download it. You can just download it, no special permission needed. I didn't immediately realize there was an answer key (in fact, I only just realized it :oops: ), but it's obviously very important.

I actually bought their C1 textbook a few months ago, but I ended up not using it. At least not yet. Well... I looked at the topics, and they're your typical cheesy textbook topics, and I decided I'd rather just read books. However, the grammar exercises in particular could be very useful for me, and I should get to them at some point.

Since I don't have my own log, I suppose this is the best place to post the news: I passed the CCE-C1 exam! :D :D :D I took it in mid-May, and they gave me a code with which to check my results once they became available, and - there they were a couple of days ago. :D Except that my scores are so much better than anything I would have dared to hope for that I keep wondering if there's a mistake. :?

I have been studying Czech with a textbook (le verbe tchèque) for one year. I watched some episodes of 'Games of thrones' dubbed in Czech. I am satisfied to be able to understand some of it. There is still of lot to learn of course. I ordered an easy reader (A2 level) because my vocabulary is insufficient to read the real thing.
