Slovene for children and teenagers
The program entitled Slovene for children and teenagers that is organised by the Centre for Slovene brings together activities connected with teaching Slovene as a second/foreign language for children and teenagers. Alongside the Slovene Language Youth Summer School, which has become an annual feature of the Centre’s youth courses, we have in recent years also been organising so-called Intensive Slovene Weeks for pupils of Slovenian and Bilingual schools as well as Slovene courses for school pupils and older immigrants.

Youth Summer School of Slovene 2017
3rd July – 14th July 2017
We would like to invite young people between the ages of 13 and 17 to visit Ljubljana in the summer to attend a course of Slovene language and at the same time spend an unforgettable holiday.
This is the eleventh year that the University of Ljubljana’s Faculty of Arts Centre for Slovene as a Second/Foreign Language has organised a Youth Summer School of Slovene Language. The course begins on Monday July 3td 2017 and ends on Friday July 14th 2017. Participants of the Youth Summer School of Slovene Language are expected to arrive on Sunday July 2nd 2017 when we will all meet at 7 pm with the course attendants’ parents and supervisors for an information evening.
Youth Summer School of Slovene
The Centre for Slovene as a Foreign Language based at the Faculty of Arts of the University of Ljubljana, has been organising the Slovene Language Youth Summer School since 2006. It is aimed at teenagers aged between 13 and 17. The course lasts a fortnight. In the mornings participants learn Slovene while in the afternoons and evenings they enjoy an event-filled program, which includes activities that allow them to become acquainted with Slovenia, Slovene culture, history and nature or take part in creative, sports or recreational activities.
Intensive Slovene Weeks
We organise Intensive Slovene Language Weeks (a 30-hour course) for pupils of Slovenian and bilingual schools and for those who attend Slovene lessons in neighbouring countries and further afield. This course provides an important supplement to the Slovene that pupils learn in the countries they live in. In agreement with their schools, we focus on helping them at beginners or advanced level or with intensive preparations for secondary school-leaving examinations, literature classes, conversation classes etc. In the afternoons following language lessons, the pupils discover the cultural attractions of the Slovenian capital. The first Intensive Slovene Language Week was organised in 2007 for pupils from Austrian Carinthia and since 2009 similar weeks have been regularly organised also for pupils from Porabje (Hungary).
