Slovak 10x10 is an essential course in conversational Slovak that combines detailed video lessons with a virtual memory palace. By learning roughly 10 items a day for 10-11 weeks, you will go from complete beginner to a lower-intermediate level of Slovak. In other words, by learning and storing the items of each lesson each day, by the end of the course you'll have an active vocabulary of more than 700 words and phrases. You'll be able to communicate effectively in day-to-day situations with native speakers of Slovak at a level corresponding to A2 on the CEFR.
The memory palace not only helps you retain the information of the course long-term, it also provides a recall mechanism so that you can actively produce all the content.
When you first get started learning a language, it's very difficult to practice communication because you don't have the resources to do so. You need to have more material in your repertoire to be able to combine words and constructions into sentences. By using a "set it and forget it" mentality to the course – enjoying the memory palace exercise each day – you'll find that within a few weeks you've got what you need to start communicating.
These lessons have been prepared by Dr Michaela Wickleinova, a linguist and native speaker of Slovak. She has recorded all the lessons and explanations, as well as the audio reviews that you can download with each lesson.
