Thanks to everyone who responded to our question about Slovak-language conversation groups. After much figuring, plotting, and triangulation, we’re finally ready to start talking po slovensky!
The Slovak conversation groups will meet in three different locations in the Washington, DC area. Each group will meet once a month and you are welcome to participate in as many groups as you want.
Everyone is welcome to attend. Each group will find its own level, based on the language abilities of the participants. There could even be a little teaching/explanation to help those who are studying the language on their own. We hope this will inspire students of the language to brush up on their grammar and vocabulary.
All three locations are very easily accessible by Metro. When you come to each venue, look for a familiar face or the little Slovak table flag.
If you have a question about the groups, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to seeing you!
