Is there a language barrier in Slovakia for those who speak Ukrainian, and Russian 🤔
Although Slavic languages are similar, Slovak is a separate language with its own unique grammar and vocabulary.
Yes, there are quite a lot of Ukrainians and Russian-speaking foreigners living in Slovakia now. Some Slovaks themselves speak Russian or English, and sometimes even sign language saves you. In addition, locals are quite friendly and tolerant of foreigners.
🚗 However, if you are planning a move to Slovakia, we recommend you spend time and effort learning the local language. Not only will it make your daily life easier, but it will also show respect for the local culture and will endear you to any Slovakian.
But don’t worry, learning Slovak is not an insurmountable task. The similarities to other languages in the Slovak language group make learning Slovak easy and fun 📚
