Learning language as communication bridge with people Locked WHAT prompts someone to learn a difficult, strange language spoken by scarcely more than six million people worldwide (a very optimistic estimate)? Maybe it is the language of someone’s ancestors, or perhaps one needs it for his or her career. But some students, like those participating in the annual Studia Academica Slovaca (SAS) project, go through all the ups and downs of learning Slovak as a foreign language for the sheer pleasure, taking on the challenge bravely and joyfully. 1 Sep 2014 The Slovak Spectator

Slovak landscapes, past and present THE BIGGEST exhibition in the Slovak National Gallery (SNG) in 2014 is called Two Landscapes, whose subtitle reads: Picture of Slovakia: 19th Century x The Present Time. As the name suggests, the exhibition juxtaposes two different periods and perceptions of artistic depictions of Slovakia – that of the late 18th and 19th century, in contrast with the late 20th and early 21st century. 25 Aug 2014 The Slovak Spectator
SNP interpreted via art, culture CULTURAL institutions are hardly left out of the 70th anniversary of the Slovak National Uprising (SNP), as myriad exhibitions, films and theatre events attest. Much of the focus remains on how this 1944 uprising against the Nazi-allied Slovak government of the time should be interpreted today. As the 20th century communist regime sought to use the uprising for its own means, the interpretations of this key historical event are changing and developing with the flow of time. Artists, past and present, are among those reflecting on such issues. 25 Aug 2014 The Slovak Spectator
