Slovak is the official language of the Slovak Republic. uTalk helps you learn Standard Slovak which is used in government, education and the media. It’s broadly based on the dialect spoken in Central Slovakia. Other major dialects are the ones spoken in Western and in Eastern Slovakia but all three are understandable by speakers of the others. Knowing Slovak will help you understand some Czech, Polish and other neighbouring Slavic languages.
