This article discusses the position of Dutch as a Foreign Language within the curriculum of Translating/Interpreting and Germanic Studies at the Faculty of Philosophy of the Comenius University in Bratislava and within the context of national and European language politics. First, it analyzes the development of language and culture of language in Slovakia and the manner in which that development influenced communication in the area of former Czechoslovakia. The role of Czech and Slovak in communication between Czechs and Slovaks is presented as 'lingua receptiva'. Subsequently, an intercultural and a transnational model for foreign language teaching from the perspective of translatology are compared, and their application in foreign language teaching is illustrated with reference to the example of Dutch as part of the newly developed BA ‘Germanic Studies’ at Comenius.
