Petra was born in a town called Trnava in Slovakia, and moved to Cork when she was four. She goes to Cork Educate Together National School and in her spare time she loves horse riding on her favorite horse, Comet.

In this episode we hear all about what life was like for a kid growing up in Slovakia from her Dad, Peter. As it gets quite cold in the winter, one of his favorite sports to play was Ice Hockey.

Peter met Petra's mom, Monica, while she was working as a researcher in Slovakia. We learn from Monica what it's like moving to a country where no one speaks your language and how body language can help you to communicate with others.

From food and culture, to family and past times, this episode is jam packed with useful phrases and stories from Slovakia.
