Learn Slovenian Online — It’s easier than you think

Our program, Learn Slovenian Online, is explained in this 40 second video.

Learn Slovenian Online — Overcoming Challenges

Learn Slovenian Online is designed for beginners. The course aims to introduce you to the language gradually, but quickly. Starting with an introduction to the alphabet, pronunciation and the sound of the spoken language. Continuing with practical dialogues and useful phrases. Concluding as it dissects the rare ‘dual’ form (which the Slovene language has in addition to singular and plural), and demystifies the complex grammatical cases.

Although Slovenian has a reputation for being complex, many have successfully mastered it, and many more have learned the basics, enough to enrich their experience visiting the country, enabling them to enjoy it to the utmost. With the right motivation, accompanied by the right tools, you will succeed.

Your Learn Slovenian Toolbox

We wrote about some recommendations for learning Slovene on this blog in the past. Using Anki for memorising new words is another tool we highly recommend. You can read about using Anki with Learn Slovenian Online here.

Have you thought about learning Slovenian with the help of music? Valentina curated a great list of Slovenian artists with clear vocals, so you have the opportunity to experience some Slovene culture while you learn.

Other actions you can take include, asking questions on our Facebook page and subscribing to our blog by email to receive our latest articles, on Slovenian language learning and culture, straight to your inbox. We have written about Slovenian slang, dialects, cuisine, and more.

Anki Flashcards and Learn Slovenian Online

To get the most out of the Learn Slovenian Online program, it’s important to make use of the Anki flashcards included throughout the course.

The end of several lessons feature exercises you can complete to test your knowledge as you study the course. The majority of sections also include a selection of digital flashcards, for use with Anki.

Anki flashcards are a valuable learning tool

Anki is a free program which allows you to test yourself using these digital flashcards and works on the basis of spaced-repetition learning, a technique which has been shown to significantly increase memory retention.

Anki is a program which makes remembering things easy. Because it’s a lot more efficient than traditional study methods, you can either greatly decrease your time spent studying, or greatly increase the amount you learn.—Ankisrs.net
