No one knew how much these books, notebooks and methodological materials would be needed in 2022, when a full-scale war between Russia and Ukraine would begin. So far, no educational material has been developed for teaching the Slovak language specifically for children of foreigners in Slovakia. We were the first to undertake this work. We started the book development project back in 2018. Our designers, illustrators and teachers have been working on them for four years.
When developing dictionaries and a reference book, we independently involved NIVAM specialists for consultations. Later, representatives of NIVAM turned to us with a request to print our books to help Ukrainian refugee children. Of course, we supported this idea and gave our consent to it. As a result, all schools in Slovakia with children from Ukraine received sets of textbooks and notebooks. We are proud to be able to participate in such assistance.
It is for the result of this project that we received the European Language Brand 2022
We talked about this at the conference "After a year of helping emigrants from Ukraine in education" in Presov.
