Knowledge of the Slovak language significantly helps foreigners in their first steps in Slovakia. It increases their opportunity to find a job corresponding to their work experience and professional skills, to communicate with Slovak authorities, to describe a health problem to a doctor, to accelerate the inclusion of children in school and number of other benefits. Apart from that, they are economically active and beneficial for society that has accepted them.
PLEASE NOTE: Registration for ongoing courses is closed and all the groups in the current course cycle are currently fully booked. The next cycle of Slovak language courses is scheduled for August 2022. The date and time of registration for a new cycle will be announced at the end of July 2022 on the IOM Migration Information Centre (MIC) website: www.mic.iom.sk.
