Ahoj! - what a wonderful phrase. The Slovak language can sound beautiful to the ear, but many foreigners find it difficult to learn. With complicated grammatical rules and formal and informal verb forms, learning to speak the language on a basic conversational level takes time and patience.

Thankfully, there are many language courses available to foreigners in Bratislava. Some of them are even free. Listen to Ali, a student who is currently studying Slovak at Comenius University, to find out where you can take courses, which Slovak radio programme he loves to listen to for extra language practice, and why it is okay to make mistakes when speaking the complicated language.
