Blog: It took me half a year to get used to halušky

How do you regonise the moment when a foreign country becomes your home? Billy Altansukh, a Mongolian who now calls Slovakia home, describes it in this podcast.

Billy Altansukh was born and raised in Mongolia. He came to Slovakia in 1998 after he decided to study in Europe. Back then, Slovakia was a different world compared to what it is today. Billy has a lot to say about that.

A linguist and fluent Slovak speaker, Billy is a good person to ask about the Slovak language, but also about how to obtain Slovak citizenship. He also reveals what his favourite Slovak dish is.

My Slovak Experience is a podcast by Emanuele Terenzani. In each episode, he interviews one of his fellow foreigners living in Slovakia. You can follow the podcast on YouTube, iTunes, Stitcher or Tunein.
