The Czech language is actually the Czech Republic's official language and is spoken by roughly 11 million native speakers. It is a West Slavic language and has many similarities to other languages such as Russian and Polish from the Slavic region.
The language has been significantly influenced by Latin and German and uses the Latin writing system. The Czech language first appeared in the 12th century. Still, due to German popularity, it did not see a revival until the late 18th century. It used to be spoken in Czechoslovakia, but since its dissolution, it is primarily taught and spoken in the Czech Republic.
