The education programme organised by the Centre for Continuing Education of the Comenius University (CĎV UK) teaches both the basics, and the higher level of Slovak language between July 6 and 24, in the Study and Congress Centre in Modra-Harmónia.
It will host 65 foreigners from various countries worldwide, like Serbia, Ukraine, Hungary, Romania, The Netherlands, Russia, Poland, the UK, and Egypt, the CĎV UK informed in a press release. Most of them are expats, or children of Slovak ancestry, students of Slovak language in their home country or those who plan to continue to study at a Slovak university.
Apart from language instruction, the students also learn about the culture of contemporary Slovakia, its past, its focal points, folklore as well as social changes and literature. This year is dedicated to Slovak language codifier and national revivalist Ľudovít Štúr, whose is celebrated in 2015. They will also make excursions and trips to Modra, Červený Kameň Castle, Bratislava, Bojnice, High Tatras, Banská Štiavnica, and many more interesting sites.
The 25th year of the course will be opened at 16:30, attended by the Comenius University Rector Karol Mičieta, representatives of Slovaks living abroad, and of Slovak institutions. Part of the ceremony will be also the launch of a new textbook, 3, 2, 1 – Slovenčina.
