- a hallway – chodba
- cloakrooms – šatne
- a staircase – schodisko
- teachers’ offices – učiteľské kabinety
- the deputy head’s office – zástupcova kancelária
- the administrative office –  kancelária administratívy, sekretariát
- classrooms - triedy

- a computer room – miestnosť s počítačmi
- toilettes – toalety

The hallways and staircases are decorated with pictures and flowers.
 
In the building for practical education there is:

- the principal office – riaditeľova kancelária
- the food canteen – školská jedáleň
- workshops – dielne
- machines - stroje
- technical equipment – technické zariadenie
 
Our classroom is big. There are large windows opposite the door, rows of school desks and chairs. In our classroom we also have:

- a blackboard and chalks – tabuľa a kriedy
- a sponge – špongia
- a teacher’s desk – učiteľský stôl, katedra
- a notice board - nástenka
- a waste basket – odpadkový kôš
- a class-register – triedna kniha

THE SCHOOL YEAR:
The school year in Slovakia starts on 2nd of September and ends in June /on the 30th of June/. We have 2 terms – a summer term and a winter term. In July and August we have holidays. We also have a few days off school in autumn, during Christmas and a week holiday in spring. We have on average 7 lessons a day. A lesson is 45 minutes long. Between the lessons we have breaks that are 5 or 10 minutes long. We also have a lunch break which is 30 minutes long. Students are evaluated by marks on the scale from 1 to 5 – 1 is the best and 5 is the worst.
During the school year we have some special events – for example:
* sport events – športové udalosti
* school trips – školské výlety
* we go to the cinema
* parent-teacher meetings – rodičovské združenia
* graduation balls – stužkové slávnosti
 
Subjects taught at school during the school year /Predmety vyučované na škole počas školského roka/:

- compulsory - povinné
- optional / elective/ - voliteľné
- maths /mathematics/ - matematika
- physics – fyzika
- chemistry – chémia
- biology – biológia
- geography – zemepis
- history – dejepis
- foreign languages – cudzie jazyky
- technical subjects – technické /odborné/ predmety
- PE /physical education/ - telesná výchova
- religious education – náboženstvo
- natural sciences – prírodoveda
- social sciences – spoločenské vedy

My favourite subject:
My favourite school subject is PE /physical education/ because I like sport. I especially like playing ball games such as football and basketball.
I don’t like mathematics because I don’t like numbers.
 
THE EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM IN SLOVAKIA:
The general education in Slovakia is free of charge – you don’t have to pay if you go to a state school but in most private schools you have to pay fees. School attendance in Slovakia is compulsory for children aged from 6 to 15 years.
In Slovakia we have:
a) state schools – štátne školy
b) private schools – súkromné školy
c) church schools – cirkevné školy
 
Education in Slovakia has these stages:
 
1. PRE-SCHOOL EDUCATION /predškolské vzdelávanie/ - it includes nursery schools and kindergartens. They are for children from 3 to 6 years old.
2. PRIMARY SCHOOLS /základné školy/ - children start attending primary schools when they are 6 years old and finish when they are 15 years old. The children at primary schools study these subjects: mathematics, physics, Slovak language, a foreign language, geography, history and so on.
3. SECONDARY SCHOOLS /stredné školy/ – it usually takes from 3 to 4 years to complete secondary education. To complete secondary education you have to pass the final exam. We have to pass the school leaving examination.
When children finish the primary school, they can choose one of the following secondary schools:
a) grammar schools – /gymnáziá/ – they prepare students for the university study
b) special schools – /špeciálne školy/ – they include:
* technical colleges – technické školy
* business academies – obchodné akadémie
* music and art schools – hudobné a umelecké školy
c) vocational schools – /odborné učňovské školy/ – these are apprentice schools that train their students for practical jobs – for example to become:
a shop assistant - predavač
a plumber – vodoinštalatér
a builder - murár
a carpenter – stolár
4. UNIVERSITIES /vysoké školy/ - if you pass the entrance exam, you can go to a university. The university study takes from 4 to 6 years. When you successfully finish university, you get a diploma and you are awarded with a degree. For example:
Bachelor’s Degree = Bc.
Master’s Degree = Mgr.
5. FURTHER EDUCATION /ďalšie vzdelávanie/ - it includes different kinds of training courses. You usually have to pay for them.
 
 
THE BRITISH SYSTEM OF EDUCATION:
The compulsory school attendance in Britain starts at the age of 5.
Children start primary education – it is divided into infant schools and junior schools. Pupils at most of the primary and secondary schools have to wear uniforms, which are usually different for every school.
At the age of 11, most children start secondary education - it is compulsory until the age of 16, when the students take an exam called “GCSE” (General Certificate of Secondary Education). Students, who pass the GCSE exam can attend a 2-years long course and take A-levels examination. They can go to university only if they pass A-levels.

THE AMERICAN SYSTEM OF EDUCATION:
In the USA there is no national system of education. Each of the 50 American states has its own laws (zákony) that regulate education. Children begin school at the age of 5 or 6 and finish at the age of 16 or 18.
American children attend:

a) elementary schools (ZŠ)
b) middle school – children attend the middle school for 3 years
c) secondary schools that are called high schools – when they finish, they get  a high school diploma. During the school attendance, children have to take the Stanford Achievement Test – the results of this test are important if the student wants to attend a college or a university.
 
AFTER-SCHOOL ACTIVITIES AT OUR SCHOOL:
After school we can play football, basketball or other ball games in the gym. We can join a computer group in our school or attend free English lessons provided by our school teachers. We also have a tourist’s after school activity /turistický krúžok/ at our school.
 
THE IDEAL SCHOOL:
I would change some rules. For example I can imagine school without any school marks. Sometimes the marks are a big problem. Students are stressed out and afraid of having bad marks. I think that school education could be more practical. We should be prepared for the future job and career, for the university study. Sometimes we have to memorize too many things that we don’t really need in real life. And I think teachers should understand the problems of the young generation.
 
I wouldn’t like to be a teacher. Slovak teachers are not satisfied. They want better conditions. They need new books, teaching materials, technical equipment like computers for better teaching. And students are often very undisciplined which makes teaching difficult.
But If I had to teach I would like to teach PE /Physical Education/ and Computer Sciences because I like sport activities and computers.
 
School uniforms:
Many students in Great Britain or the USA must wear the school uniforms – it is compulsory. I think the most important advantage is that there is no difference between the poor and the rich. I think that boys don’t mind wearing school uniforms but girls like fashion and they couldn’t show their new clothes. I wouldn’t like to wear a school uniform. I like wearing jeans and T – shirts because it is more comfortable.
 
SOCIAL SITUATIONS /spoločenské situácie/ AT SCHOOL:
When the student comes to school and he is not prepared for the lesson or he is late, he should apologize to the teacher. He can say:
 
I would like to apologize because:
I’m late. I missed my bus. / My bus was late. = Meškám. / Zmeškal som autobus. / Môj autobus meškal.
I’m not prepared for today’s lesson because I was ill last week / I was absent yesterday. = Nie som pripravený na dnešnú hodinu pretože som bol chorý minulý týždeň. / Včera som chýbal.
I have forgotten my book / homework. = Zabudol som si knihu / domácu úlohu.
