That's funny--I didn't learn the Slovak for please or thank you either
until I visited there (in '97). On an earlier trip my mother did all
the talking, as usual, that's why I never learned to speak Slovak--ale
rozumiem Slovensky. I still have trouble pronouncing thank you in
Slovak. I think it's easier in Czech!
A childhood memory I have is my mother calling my cat a potvora.
