The first Ukraine preschoolers will learn Slovak
Uzhgorod became the first Ukrainians city to open a group of kindergarten where children will learn and communicate in Slovak.
'Your land is well-known outside due to its tolerant attitude to numerous ethnic groups and nationalities. Therefore, every minority must be provided with a right to raise their children in their mother tongue.
Slovaks are pleased that they have the opportunity to participate in this process. Though, of course, this does not mean that their children will not learn Ukrainian', Consul General of the Slovak Republic in Uzhgorod Janka Burianova comments.
The need for such group is evidenced by the fact that at the moment parents are applying for the group to study next year. So there is a possibility that study groups in other languages of national minorities will open in Zakarpattia Oblast.
