Reader feedback: Thanks for the language school tips

Being a Slovak national working in London for a relocation company I was pleased to see that your newspaper has a corner that deals with expat issues [Re: "Foreign Affairs - Finding Slovak language instruction" by Matthew J. Reynolds Vol. 7 No. 32 August 27 - September 2]. We also arrange for language tuition for clients all over the world. Finding a good, qualified tutor takes some time.

But as you rightly stated, teaching Slovak as a second language in Slovakia is a very "recent" need . Sometimes it is easier to get good tuition before one actually relocates to Slovakia, in England anyway. Having Slovak friends who are willing to help you is great, unless they want to brush up or improve on their English - just like I did!
