In April and first days of May 2022, IOM Migration Information Centre (MIC) opened free Slovak language courses for 5 classes of Ukrainian citizens in in-person format in Bratislava and Gabčíkovo Accommodation Facility and for 15 classes in online format.

For those fleeing war in Ukraine and arriving to Slovakia, knowledge of Slovak language facilitates their communication with Slovak authorities, increases their opportunity to find a job corresponding to their job experience and skills, and helps them to find friends among Slovaks as well.

IOM MIC conducts in-person courses in a centre entitled Slovensko-ukrajinský komunitný dom (Slovak-Ukrainian Community House) in Bratislava and in Gabčíkovo Accommodation Facility providing shelter for hundreds of people from Ukraine.
