One fun way to advance or master Slovene (or any new language) is to understand and use its idioms or expressions like the locals.
- Konjiček – Pony
It can mean pony (the animal), but usually it refers to a hobby. So, be careful of how you will answer when asked “kateri je tvoj najljubši konjiček?” – “which is your favorite pony?” 😛
- Imeti krompir – To have a potato
It can actually mean that you own a potato, but when locals say it, it means to have luck or to be lucky (imeti srečo).
- Tih kot miš – Quiet like a mouse
Same as in English, it means that someone is very quiet and makes no noise.
Let speaks like Slovenians,
