The initial step in integrating into Slovenian society is learning the Slovenian language. After obtaining the status, you are referred to a language school, where you are entitled to 300 free hours of instruction, and in the event of 80% attendance, you can apply for an additional 100 hours. The language school sends its opinion about your performance and attendance data to the Office. The cost of the course and transport costs are borne by the Office.

Providers of free Slovenian language learning programmes.

At the end of the course, you can take an examination in the Slovenian language at authorised providers. The application for issuing a certificate on the fulfilment of conditions for a free first examination at the basic level is filed at the Office, which covers the costs only of the first attempt at the examination.
