Many people do not realize this, but each language has its own version of country names and nationalities. This is why when you’re traveling and you look at a world map in another language, you might not recognize country names or city names. So in today’s language lesson, you’re going to learn the names of countries and nationalities in Slovak and language names too from around the world.
Fair warning, the language lessons will include Slovak names for nationalities, languages, and countries for the more commonly heard or familiar terms. There are many examples that we have left out. It would be a lot to add all 195 countries and over 1,700 language terms, however, if you’d like to see a country, nationality, or language added to the list, please add a comment down below!
