Margita Blahová

Teacher of Slovak

Margita studied at the Pedagogical Faculty of Comenius University. After her studies she worked in a Primary school for 25 years specialising in Slovak for Foreigners. Her aim is to help the students learn to communicate in the language of this country. "It’s a delight to hear the children talking about their plans for the summer in June when they were barely able to say ‘Ahoj’ at the beginning of the school year." Over her years at CIS, she has really seen how much foreign children and families wish to adopt Slovak language and culture and is proud of how this helps them to engage within our broader society and community. For Gitka, it is not about Slovak for tourists, but about Slovak for living and embracing Slovakia.  In her free time she likes to do sports and to spend time with her family and grandchildren.
