Slovene Language Courses

Centre for Slovene as a second or foreign language organises every year before the start of the semester an intensive 3-week course of Slovene for Erasmus+ incoming students. You can apply directly at the Centre.

If you are not able to attend the Slovene language courses at the centre you could perhaps learn Slovene by using their Slovene online tool. The tool is now available in seven different language options and it is certainly a good start to catch some basic Slovene words.

Faculty of Medicine organises with the help of our students a Slovene medical vocabulary workshop which is organised in the first week of every semester. You will get the basic medical vocabulary which will help you catch some words in Slovene when communicating with patients during the clinical practice. You can as well take the advantage of the tool MEDINElingua which offers medical vocabulary in several languages.
