    Obviously it is like Czech but what about the other slavic languages?


    Speakers of Czech and Slovak usually understand both languages in their written and spoken form, thus constituting a pluricentric language, though some dialects or heavily accented speech in either language might present difficulties to speakers of the other (in particular, Czech speakers may find Eastern Slovak dialects difficult to comprehend). Younger generations of Czechs living after the dissolution of Czechoslovakia in 1993 (therefore generally less familiar with Slovak) might also have some problems with a certain number of words and expressions which differ considerably in the two languages, and with false-friends. Nevertheless, these differences do not impede mutual intelligibility significantly.
    Linguistically, the Czech and Slovak languages form a language continuum, eastern Slovak dialects then blend into the Rusyn language. Czech exists in two forms (excluding the four Moravian and two Silesian dialects): literary Czech and colloquial Czech. The standard Slovak language is closer to literary Czech, especially in phonology and morphology.

    In my opinion, sound more like Serbian than like Russian. Voice system, accents...

    Hm, but from all options, i think i would choose Slovenian.

    This video is in Czech :

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qjMYm...layer_embedded

    If anyone is interested in the Slovak language and its sound, listen to these two videos :

    [YOUTUBE]L-w8S-w0WkM[/YOUTUBE]

    [YOUTUBE]xbp-VAntwYA[/YOUTUBE]

    Hmm I'm not sure whether you can see the videos or something is wrong with it.

    Sounds similar to Polish and other Central Europe Slavic languages.

    Sounds like a mix of Polish and Czech languages.
