The courses serve as the first contact with the Slovak language, and therefore are recommended for beginners.

These courses are not strictly academic, and their goal is to help you with your integration in Slovakia.

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.

Time structure of the course

The course is organized in cycles lasting about three months (12 weeks). During the calendar year, three such cycles are organized (winter, spring and autumn). Individual courses have various intensity from a frequency twice a week for 90 min, to an intensive course (3-4 times a week for 90 min).
