    Czechoslovakian does not exist. There are two separate languages; Czech and Slovak.

    Here's Czech (the audio files are from here - you should also consult our resources sticky):
    how much does it cost? Kolik to stojí?
    do you have a larger/smaller size? Mahtay vyetshee/menshee velihkost?
    can you send this directly to the U.S? Moozhetay toh poslaht prsheemoh doh USA?
    does it come in other colors? Mahtay yeenay barvy?
    where is the bathroom? Kde yi'so toh'ahlety?
    where can I find a taxi? I need a taxi = Potřebuji taxi.
    could you recommend a restaurant? Moozhetay dohpohroochit restah'ooratsi?
    thank you!! Děkuji.
