Language

Although more and more Slovaks can speak English, especially the young ones, you might face communication problems in some cases. We highly recommend interns to start learning key Slovak phrases before their arrival. Free basic Slovak language lessons are widely available on the internet. Below you can find a list of useful words and phrases in Slovak:

Formal greetings: Dobré ráno (good morning), Dobrý deň (good afternoon), Dobrý večer (good evening), Dobrú noc (good night), Dovidenia (goodbye)
