Learn Slovak Language for Free

In this article, we would like to present you some options to learn Slovak for free online: E-Learning websites, publications and handbooks.


Firstly, we present you the website Slovake.eu. You can study there the Slovak language in 13 different languages: Czech, English, German, Esperanto, Spanish, French, Croatian, Hungarian, Italian, Lithuanian, Polish, Russian and Slovak.

The website consists of language courses of various levels (A1, A2, B1 and B2) with numerous exercises, tests and dictionaries to help you become familiar with the grammar, learn new vocabulary or communicate with other uses of this page in Slovak. Moreover, you can find here interesting information on Slovakia.[1] To start learning Slovak, you just need to register.

Slovake.eu is a project supported by the European Commission within the program KA2 – languages – program of lifelong learning. The project is coordinated by the civic association Edukácia@Internet (E@I).[2]



E-slovak is another free E-Learning course of Slovak language. The site offers tutored lessons that are available during the school year, as well as self-learning courses. The courses correspond with the handbook „Krížom-krážom – Slovak language A1“. The course consists of main phrases, vocabulary, grammar and topics about the daily life. To start learning Slovak, you just need to register.[3]

The condition for completing the course is a basic command of English (A2). After successfully completing the course and passing the final exam, you can get a certificate.[4]

The website e-slovak was made by Studia Academica Slovaca - The Centre for Slovak as a Foreign Language which is a specialized centre at the Faculty of Arts, Comenius University (FF UK) in Bratislava.

Slovak for Asylum Holders and Asylum Seekers

Slovak for Asylum Holders and Asylum Seekers „is designed to make grammatical, lexical, syntactic and phonetic phenomena understandable to people from different countries, with a different language culture, different age and education. Slovak for Asylum Seekers and Holders does not attempt to encompass all Slovak grammar. The aim of language training for asylum seekers and asylum holders is to build and consolidate the basic communication competencies, with an emphasis on the practical use of language in everyday situations. Therefore, the Slovak for Asylum Seekers and Asylum Holders does not attempt to clarify all the grammatical phenomena of Slovak language, it focuses only on the most used phenomena.“[7]
