ISYM Google translates "years" as "léta" and "5 years" as "5 let" - but - going the other way it translates "yet" as "flight"
"léta" is very general and it also means "summers"
In general you can sometimes use more terms (Czech is extremely rich in synonyms, almost every word can be said several ways )
1 rok (always)
2,3,4 roky (2 léta - rarely)
5 roků / 5 let (both common)
year = rok
years = roky / léta (both mean the same thing, but there is an extremly subtle difference in when you are more likely to use one or the other, "léta" is more in words like the "the 70s" - 70.léta, or "his best years" - "jeho nejlepší léta". "Roky" is more like "2 years", "3 years". I guess it is becoming very confusing for you isnt it Oh.. and we dont use apostrophes so they are not easy to type (have to use an ALT+... combination, which is very slow and so I omit them when typing in English too )
Our keyboard has also some extra characters we use:
ě š č ř ž ý á í é ů ú ď ť ň ó
If you ever feel like learning Czech let me know
