The language instructional video is suitable for both beginners and more advanced learners of the Slovenian language, as it introduces grammar in a systematic way. Since the language of instruction is English, a basic knowledge of English is required in order to fully master the material, however the tables make the content clear and help understanding. The video is great for individual language learning, but can also be used for classroom teaching, where the teacher can give learners activities and additional tasks to practice grammar. Although the emphasis is on learning and understand Slovenian grammar, some basic vocabulary knowledge is required and learning vocabulary is also possible. Although the material improves grammar knowledge, some vocabulary can be acquired or learnt.
