  • I would agree, Peter, that just about everything that we have here is available in Slovakia. When I took the language course, it came with a CD, but I did not have a computer that had a disc drive, so I went out and purchased a CD player (hand held device). It was rather expensive by my standards, but I was rather desperate to learn the language. I had several old models at home...

  • I cannot thank you enough, Martin, for your enlightening comments. As I had mentioned, this language course taught far more than just an introduction to learning how to read and write Slovak. I find your comments fascinating. I chuckled at the description of the Slovaks that you reference. And I appreciate your verification regarding the Slovak history being censored. Do you know...

  • Caye, I knew ahead of time that there would be no air-conditioning. Most times, it wouldn't be an issue, because the weather was not really humid, just hot. And there is a nice breeze in the evening. One must plan on bringing very light clothing, which I did. The issue at hand was the cigarette smoke. And I don't know what they smoke there, but the odor was much more pungent than...

  • My daughter and I enrolled in the Slovak Summer Study program which was held in Modra-Harmonia for 3 weeks in July. I had a lot of difficulty getting information pertaining to this program in this location, but we decided to give it a try. I am quite fortunate to have a cousin who lives in Bratislava who was able to arrange for us to be picked up on July 5 from Vienna airport. I...
