Format: Hardcover
Czech grammars and language learning materials for foreigners are hard to come by in this country. The standard is James Naughton's addition to the Collouquial series and his companion Essential Grammar. The key flaw with his books, in my opinion - useful as they are - is that they simply do not contain sufficient exercises by any means. This book does. Dating from the 1950s, it presents the language in a matter-of-fact fashion, presenting all the grammar and vocab one is liekly to need to be able to read and write Czech adequately, bolsetered throughout by constant revision, review and drill exercises, ensuring the material is retained. Yes, it's old, and the most obvious consequence of this is that verbs all end in the soft -i ending, which is now archaic, though this is easily compensated for by simply mentally removing the final leter of each infinitive: nothing else is different in the modern language re verbal conjugations.

To be recommended, a worthwhile expenditure for the serious learner.

Well, this czech grammar is actually very good: chapters are easy to follow and all the rules are clearly explained.
The only bad thing is that it's like 50 years old, so you might find words or constructions that are now very formal or absolutely unused. Apart this... an excellent grammar.
