    I just found out on Facebook this morning that a good friend of mine in the Czech Republic has been very sick with the flu for the past two weeks. Since all of the messages posted so far have been in Czech, I wanted to write something to her in Czech as well. What are some of the possible ways I could either write "have been so sick with the flu" or something similar to this in Czech?

    Here's the sentence I would like to write followed by my attempt at writing it in Czech:


    I am very sorry to hear that you have been so sick with the flu Kateřina.


    Jsem velmi líto, že jste byli tak nemocní s chřipkou Kateřina.

    I'd say: Je mi velmi líto, že máte chřipku....že bojujete s chřipkou...že jste chytla chřipku...

    Děkuji Encolpius! :thumbsup:

    I really appreciate you taking the time to give me several alternatives. :)

    Jsem velmi líto = Wrong. Je mi moc líto. = Correct
    nemocní s chřipkou = Wrong. měla chřipku = Correct
    Kateřina = Wrong. Kateřino = Correct (when you point someone in this way you need to change the form)

    Je mi moc líto, že máš tak dlouho chřipku Katko.

    (I guess you are true friends so you can call her in a friendly manner = Katka means Kateřina in spoken language and we don't have present perfect in Czech, we use present simple for this instead)
