Árpád János Potápi, state secretary in charge of policies for Hungarian communities abroad, said in Martovce (Martos), in southern Slovakia, on Friday that Hungarian-language education is key to the future of the nation. “Our mother tongue is the source of all of our values and strength,” Potápi said at the inauguration of new accommodations at the Esterhazy Academy built with support from the Hungarian government. “We trust that the newly-inaugurated buildings will strengthen the appeal of the intellectual hub being created in Martovce.” Potapi said the Esterhazy Academy was part of an institutional system that had been built over the last 12 years, noting it offered Hungarian-language education from the pre-school to the university level.
