- Language is the main means by which we acquire new knowledge, but unfortunately it can also represent a big obstacle to learning. The language barriers to learning are minimized when using our first or mother tongue. Slovenes learn and use Slovene language their whole life, that's why they can feel most at ease and can express themselves swiftly and accurately when using it.
- Slovene students mostly have a good knowledge of English ..., but not all students and not in all situations.
- The same holds true for the professors. Usually they feel more at ease when lecturing in Slovene. That's why the quality of their lectures in Slovene is also higher.
