Open Slovak language courses organized by the IOM Migration Information Centre (MIC) are not certified language courses.

They serve as the first contact with the Slovak language, which is why they are are recommended for ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS. 

The Open Courses of Slovak language will help you to:

  • Learn the basics of the language in real-life situations and everyday communication (e.g. groceries, at the bank, at work, with Slovak-speaking friends, at the doctor, etc.).
  • Overcome the language barrier and fear of communication in Slovak.
  • Increase your vocabulary and learn basic grammar.

PLEASE NOTE: All the groups in the course cycle April - July are currently fully booked. The next cycle is scheduled for August 2022.
