They live among us, but sometimes we don´t see them for who they really are. Foreigners who chose Slovakia as their home away from home.
Miša Vrábová interviews foreigners living in Slovakia in a podcast created by the Bridge, English language Centre.
How did they happen to live here? What do they do? Are they happy? And most importantly… Do they like halušky?
The whole podcast is in English so if you´re having any trouble understanding or maybe want to pick up some new vocabulary, check our blog section at www.thebridge.sk
