Step 3 : The indefinite article in Czech

The indefinite article is what we call the word a in English. The indefinite article is used with nouns in English (a book, a chair, a door etc.). To get started in Czech, pick just 3 important nouns. We suggest you learn the nouns kniha, židle and dveře (book, chair, door). Once you have learned these nouns, you can then learn how to use each noun with the indefinite article. This is easy in Czech, because in Czech, there is no indefinite article. So the word kniha can mean book or a book, the word židle can mean chair or a chair and the word dveře can mean door or a door.
