Letter CH

CH is a combination of two letters, C and H, that together make one sound. In the Czech language, it's counted as just one letter. CH is unvoiced (pronounced without using your voice), although some people might say it more forcefully, which makes it sound like they're using their voice.


The Czech language is pronounced phonetically, which means that words are pronounced as they are written. There are no silent letters, and there are no diphthongs (two vowels pronounced as one sound).
