Contemporary Czech

The text was written by Prof. Michael Heim (UCLA). Part 1 consists of grammar lessons, extensive model sentences and exercises, while Part 2 is a review series. This course includes vocabulary and sentences as well as a selection of exercises. English-Czech and Czech-English dictionaries are included. Students with a good command of Russian will find this course particularly useful.

If you already know and understand another foreign language, Contemporary Czech by Michael Heim is an excellent tool for learning Czech. Heim even says that his book is intended for Slavophiles who have already become familiar with other Slavic languages, particularly Russian. I find it to be a very well-written grammar book.
