“Most of the participants are compatriots studying Slovak for various reasons,” said Janka Chladecká, director of the Comenius University Department for Continuing Education, as quoted by the TASR newswire. “They either have Slovak ancestors or have been studying Slovak at university in their home country, or they want to continue studying at a university in Slovakia.”
