What's the hardest part of learning the Czech language for non-native speakers?
Something in grammar, perhaps?

Do you know what a raised alveolar non-sonorant trill is? It is the name of the "ř" sound, which is very specific for Czech, since other languages do not have any similar sounds like that. Foreigners find it very difficult to pronounce "ř" and without good training it is almost impossible.
Czechs can pronounce words containing no vowels at all. And surprisingly, they use them quite often. For example, “prst” means “finger”, čtvrt is “quarter“ and krk means “neck”.

Any of the Slav languages will be hard for anyone with no experience of them. Czech at least is written in the Roman alphabet, though it is liberally sprinkled with accents and diacritical marks.
