The Migration Information Centre (MIC) of the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) in Slovakia will this year re-open Open Slovak Language Courses for Foreigners from countries outside the European Union.

The free lessons start in Bratislava on January 15, and are meant for beginners as well as advanced students, the TASR newswire wrote on January 3.

In the courses, students will meet in the afternoon and early evening hours, beginners on Tuesdays and Thursdays, the advanced on Mondays and Wednesdays, at the C.S. Lewis Secondary Grammar School in Bratislava-Petržalka.

“The courses are free and open for all age categories, without any registration or admission tests,” the Slovak branch of IOM informs on its website.

The courses are divided into those for students from Slavic countries and those coming from the remaining non-EU countries. Each lesson has a specific theme reflecting situations foreigners get into in everyday life, e.g. in a bank, shop, or when seeing a doctor.

IOM further states that the MIC branch in Košice will organise Slovak courses for foreigners this year; more detailed information will follow soon.

MIC IOM has been organising free Slovak language courses for foreigners since 2011, according to TASR.
