- Jmenuji se Pavel.
- My name is Pavel.
3) I am from ______.
So, where are you from? America? Europe? Africa? Asia? Just stick the name of your country inside this phrase. We’ll use the Czech Republic as an example. You can stick in your own country.
- Jsem z České republiky.
- I’m from the Czech Republic.
4) I live in ______.
What about now – where do you live? Just fill in the blank with the country or city (if famous) into this phrase. I’ll use Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, as an example.

8) I am ______.
What about your position? Are you a student? Yoga teacher? Lawyer for the potato industry? Potato salesman? Super important question that people like to ask (and judge you about – Hey, I’m just a blogger!). Just use “Jsem” meaning “I” and add your position.
- Jsem učitel.
- I’m a teacher.
9) One of my hobbies is _____.
Now, let’s move onto personal interests – hobbies! My hobbies are languages, linguajunkieing and such. How about you? You’ll definitely need this line when introducing yourself in Czech.
Here’s an example to use:
- Jedním z mých koníčků je četba.
- One of my hobbies is reading.
10) I enjoy listening to music.
Now, this is just another example line about your hobbies. You can use something else where.
