Slovenia has its own language that not many people speak apart from the two millions Slovenes. It’s a Slavic language with quite a few “peculiarities”, including the dual case. The first printed books in our language date from the mid-16th century. As a boutique nation, we can’t really expect foreign visitors to know more than just a few survival words in Slovenian, and this is why we have to do much better by decently speaking at least one foreign language. English is the most favored, but also German and Italian are widely spoken.
