Czech Lesson 2.2 - Locative Case Continued

Today's lesson continues with the locative case. I am simply going to expand upon the previous post filling out more of the list of locative example sentances with the neutral and masculine gender.

The Czech language uses the locative case to denote location (for eample: v České Republice/in the Czech Republic) and may also be used after certain prepositions with meanings other than location (for eample: o Praze/about Prague, po revoluci/after the revolution).

For my examples I will use 'v/ve' and 'na', which translate roughly as 'in' and 'on'.

The following is a list of random example expressions, broken down by gender. :

Feminine

  • Jsem ve skole - I am at school (škola)
  • Jsem v restauraci - I am the restaurant (restaurace)
  • Jsem v hospodě - I am at the pub (hospoda)
  • Jsem v galarii - I am at the gallery (galarie)
  • Jsem v bance - I am at the bank (banka)
  • Jsem v řece - I am at river (řeka)
  • Jsem v Praze - I am in Prague (Praha)
  • Jsem na diskotece - I am at the dance club (diskoteka)
  • Jsem na poště - I am at the post office (pošta)
  • Jsem v kanceláři - I am at the office (kancelář)
  • Plavu v řece - I swam in the river (řeka)
  • Tancoval jsem na diskotece - I danced at the dance club (diskoteka)
  • Muj syn četl ve škole - My son read at school (škola)
  • Večeříme v restauraci - We eat dinner in the restaurant (restaurace)
  • Nemohl jsem spát hospodé - I could not sleep at the pub (hospoda)

Masculine

  • Spím v hotelu - I sleep in the hotel (hotel)
  • Jsem v mostě - I am on the bridge (most)

Neutral

  • Jsem v kině - I am at the movie theater (kino)
  • Jsem na nadrazí - I am at the train station (nadrazí)
  • Plavu na moři - I swim in the sea (moře)

This information is also encapsulated in the Locative Case Quick Guide.
