Slovak for you - a conversational phrasebook
A conversational phrasebook was published in English, French and German languages. Below is information taken from its introduction and its contents.
You have in your hands a little guidebook that hopes to help every foreign visitor to Slovakia. You will find here some basic expressions and phrases that you might need in everyday situations. All phrases are divided into topics, so that you can easily find the required expression. This guidebook contains the most common sentences and likely answers used most often by tourists.
The guidebook is arranged into sixteen chapters, some of which are arranged into subchapters. At the end of each chapter you can find a short vocabulary with expressions based on the theme of the chapter. In some cases you will also find a pronunciation of the word [in square brackets]. Every chapter has a heading so you can quickly find the phrase you need.
You will need to know something about the Slovak language if you want to use this guidebook. There is no discussions of Slovak grammar, (besides some examples at the cover of the booklet - notice by Panorama.sk). You will only find here sentences, questions and possible answers. We believe that this is the best way for you to become familiar with Slovakia, its life, its history and its people.
