    A Czech friend of mine has been very sick for two weeks and I would like to know what some of the different ways are to write in Czech that you wish someone to "Get well soon!" Would "Uzdrav se brzy!" be a good option?


    Díky předem! :)

    Ahoj,

    "Brzy se uzdrav" je zcela správně. Můžeš napsat i "uzdrav se brzy" a bude ti rozumět, ale "brzy se uzdrav" je lepší :)

    To stejné platí pro "díky předem", taky ti bude rozumět, ale lepší je napsat "předem díky". In english you say "thank you in advance". In Czech it is as if you said "in advance thank you" or "soon get well" :)

    If you don't understand something I wrote I will try to express it in English.

    Děkuju mnohokrát! :thumbsup:

    I really appreciate your good explanation. :thumbsup:

    Is it common in Czech to simply write "Brzy se uzdrav" or would it be better when writing to a good friend who's been sick for two weeks to instead write "I hope you get well soon" in Czech?

    If I did want to write
    something longer like this in Czech would the following be correct?

    Doufám, že se brzy uzdraví.

    Předem díky! :)

    Yes, you can write "Doufám, že se brzy uzdravíš" or "Přeji ti, aby ses brzy uzdravil" or "Ať se brzy uzdravíš".

    The Czech declension of "uzdravit se" is:

    Já se uzdravím (I)
    Ty se uzdravíš (You)
    On, ona, ono se uzdraví (He, she, it)
    My se uzdravíme (We)
    Vy se uzdravíte (You - plural)
    Oni se uzdraví (They)

    :)

    You can also use "brzo instead of "brzy" but it is non-standard Czech.
