The summer school of Slovak language and literature opened its doors to foreigners for 55th time. A total of 160 applicants from 35 countries will attend the courses held at Comenius University in Bratislava between August 4 and 24.
The summer school is popular mostly among foreign students of Slovak or other Slavic languages, translators, culture workers, interpreters, teachers and foreign language lectors, as well as the descendants of Slovak expats living abroad.
“Most of you are students, but some of you are also Slovak language teachers and lectors from abroad, and we respect that by spreading the Slovak language and culture, you contribute to mutual understanding and communication among people of various nationalities and nations,” said Zuzana Kovačičová, pro-rector for education, at the ceremonial opening, as quoted in a press release.
