Colloquial Slovak

Author: James Naughton

The second edition of Dr Naughton’s step-by-step approach to written and spoken Slovak. This textbook is used particularly during the final year of Czech (with Slovak) at Oxford.


This is a significantly revised and updated version of the first edition (1997).

The list below is intended for recording any misprints worth publicising. The second edition has a new layout, various additions and changes, and some added illustrations. The recordings of the slightly revised dialogues and accompanying exercises are also new.
