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.
