2/1. Listen, read, translate, ask, and answer questions.
Slovenians divide their day into four parts: early
morning, daytime, evening, and night. Thus for 'good
afternoon' there is no special expression. The parting
expression na svidenje translates 'see you again'. The
now seldom used expression for permanent parting
zbogom means 'with God'. In the mountains one often
hears the word srecno 'good luck' in parting.
2/2. Complete the form:
2/4. Choose the correct reply.
2/5. Listen, read, ask and answer questions.
"Kdo si ti?" and "Kdo ste vi?"
Both questions have the same meaning, the difference is in formality. "Kdo si ti"? is informal. You can say "ti" to someone you
know well or to a child. All other people should be addressed as
"vi", therefore "Kdo ste vi"?

"Kaj delaš?" and "Kaj delate?"
Both questions have the same meaning, the difference is again in formality. Slovenian verbs in the present tense take different
endings according to the person. Informal
"ti" requires the ending -š (delaš), formal "vi" takes the ending -te (delate).
