Dobré ráno, Miss Recto!


Explanation:
A real Czech would say even Miss Rectová ...

This is the exact translation.

I am native Czech.
Pronounce as follows: dobre: ra:no ...
all the vowels are to be pronounced in their full form.

Explanation:
Hello again,

I have thought about your question once more: good morning in English is used in the time till noon - in Czech however it is not usual - we say - after ca. 10 o´clock "good day" "Dobrý den" - till noon.
So except when Miss Recto really stands up after 10 a.m., you would say "Dobrý den".
Pronounced as you read it. Full vowels. ý - is long

Regards.
