General Slovene courses

The general Slovenian courses offered at the Mint International House language centre chiefly focus on the practical and functional use of language. The emphasis is on communication: we will not give you lectures about the language, instead you will use itwithout fearing mistakes! We will encourage you to speak Slovenian with enthusiasm and to use it as much as you can, at every opportunity.

Details about general Slovenian courses

During the courses, state-of-the-art textbooks and workbooks are used, and most of them also include a CD and interactive web exercises. The teachers use modern picture materials and flashcards that help you memorise, and you will also receive many useful additional materials provided by the teachers to suit your needs.


The Slovenian courses are graded in accordance with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), namely A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2. To facilitate a comparison: the average secondary school knowledge upon graduation corresponds to B2. The Slovenian group courses usually take place in the autumn semester from the end of September to the end of January and in the spring semester from the end of February to mid-June. The group and mini-group courses are generally conducted on weekdays and include three school lessons a week, either from 4.00 to 6.25 p.m. or from 6.45 to 9.10 p.m. Besides the group and mini-group courses, you can also choose from among lessons in a pair or One-to-one courses, which are not divided into semesters but start by agreement. A lesson takes 45 minutes. The course takes place in our classrooms at Vilharjeva 21 in Ljubljana.

The tuition fee for semester courses can be paid in cash or by debit and credit cards. The tuition fee for group and mini-group courses can be paid for in up to 5 monthly instalments. The tuition fee for lessons in a pair and individual lessons must be paid in advance. The textbook and workbook are included in the tuition fee.
