Czech to English translations [Non-PRO]
Czech term or phrase: mij se hezky, u* umís éesky
found at the tail end of a letter from a girl from Tábor.
christian
English translation:Have a nice time; you speak Czech
Explanation:
Weird, isn´t it? This is one of plenty Czech sayings which, in general, make no sense. It is just playing with words - the words rhyme and the sentence simply sounds well when pronounced.
It was probably meant as a cheerful greeting from your friend.
So, měj se hezky.

Explanation:
Very colloquial and unfortunately there are some letters & diacritical signs missing, hence my guess:

"I Like/love it ('it's great to me'), you already know Czech"
