Zdravo in dobrodošli!
(Good healthy hello to you and welcome!)
Nothing compares to the thrill of being able to speak with locals in their own language when you visit their country.
You are in luck! You can now experience this amazing feeling too!
My name is Matevž and I’ve been teaching and consulting soft and technical subjects to locals and foreigners for over a decade.
Languages are my passion: I love learning new ones and teaching ones I mastered.
Together with my partner Farnaz, we created Slovenian for Exchange Students, our mission to make learning Slovenian easier than ever and accessible, especially to those who tried before and failed.
Our course is perfect for the complete beginner as we chop down the Slovenian language into bits that we teach you how to bring together again in an easy to understand way.
You can go from knowing no Slovenian at all to putting together your own sentences in minutes.
TRY OUR FREELY AVAILABLE PREVIEW LESSONS
We want everyone to see they can learn to speak Slovenian, so the first four videos of this course are available as free previews and you can watch them without ever signing up.
If nothing else, we want you to see how easy it is to learn Slovenian.
HOW DOES SLOVENIAN FOR EXCHANGE STUDENT WORK?
Each lesson in this course is short, most last only 2 minutes with only a few taking up to 10 minutes.
In each lesson you will learn a tiny bit of Slovenian.
You can use all these bits to start building spoken sentences in Slovenian.
As you work through the course you catch more and more bits and your sentences will start getting longer.
Everything you learn in the first lessons carries throughout the course.
Therefore you don't have to worry about remembering everything.
With so much opportunity for practice, the phrases will be easy to remember.
Every lesson in this course is focused on the practical and effective ways of building your language skills that you can apply immediately.
You will end up speaking Slovenian with comfort and zest whenever you are in a Slovenian speaking country.
WHY ARE LESSONS SO BRIEF?
When starting something new, as human beings, we tend to get very excited and driven.
You might spend hours learning the first day, but the next day, you can only manage one hour.
... and then that goes down 30 minutes, and then you get bored and stop completely.
The reason behind our brief lessons is simple: they help you stay motivated. This in turn means your learning is more consistent.
True success with any learning related mission lies in consistency. And we build that with habits.
By ensuring your learning takes place in short bits, something wonderful happens:
1. Your enthusiasm endures
The key to learning starts with zeal and zest to get it done - your own true enthusiasm.
If you allow yourself a beset study time of just a few minutes, you'll keep your Slovenian sharp and shiny.
Your excitement and eagerness to learn will show more and results will be self-evident.
Forcing yourself to spend hours sitting and staring at a screen studying, will only get you bored and it'll just be another chore.
We hate that. So instead, we designed all lessons brief, concise; each has a fun, quick worksheet and a recap.
2. You will study with much more consistency
It’s much better to study for just five minutes once a day than to study for three hours but only once a week.
One can always find five minutes, even on the busiest of schedules.
If you ensure you complete at least one lesson every day, it’ll quickly become a habit that you’ll do without ever thinking.
It’s much easier to fit in a daily five-minute habit than a weekly one-hour chore.
With just doing this, you’ll become an incredibly consistent learner and consistency is the key to success.
You will become a success and learn to speak Slovenian.
3. Your memory will improve
This is the best reason to why it is a good idea to limit daily study routines into small bits.
Studying smaller bits is a mind trick that allows you to memorise information faster and better than if you look at it for hours on end.
"Here is stuff I see daily, it must be important but I don't get to see it for too long... I should hold on to it and turn it into memory quickly!"
Things will tend to stay in your brain with more ease if you limit yourself to just five minutes a day.
... and that is why we choose to keep our lessons brief.
AN APPROACH THAT WILL ALWAYS WORK
We advise you to try this method whenever you're studying a language, a difficult topic or if you need to remember a lot of terms more easily.
So! If you want a course that teaches you to speak the Slovenian you can use daily and even uses this fun and simple approach, then enroll in Slovenian For Exchange Students today.
