Thank you Tjasa and your students for this information.
LIFE OF THE SLOVENE TEENAGERS
Teenagers in Slovenia spend their week differently. Many teens are at school in the morning from about 8 am to 1 pm. Students are at school five days a week. After school they hang around with friends. Later they do their homework and then they go in the town, shopping or outside on fresh air. In the evening they play computer games or chat through the Meesenger or Facebook. They also watch TV very often. For the weekend they do many other things. They go swimming, skating, skiing, on the trip or they learn. Some older teens have to find a job because they haven' t got much learning at school or they already finished school. Some teenagers work through the student work.
In Slovenia we have primary schools, high schools and universities. Primary school is the first school and there are 9 classes. Children who learn in it are from 5 to 15 years old. Every child has to finish primary school. High school is the second school and has 4 classes. Students in it are from 15 to 19 years old. Many people find a job after high school. People who want to have more education go on the different universities.
Many students have interest activities after school like piano lessons, dance lessons, basketball or footbal training,... They haven' t got many free time.
Some students want to rest and relax and they don' t have many interest activities. They go outside on fresh air or help parents at home.
In Slovenia there are many teenagers who depend on the computer or TV. A lot of teens play and chat with friends through the internet all afternoon and evening and at the weekend all day. Parents are very angry about that.
Some teenagers have to work when they are 17 or more years old because they don' t go to the school. They work five days a week.
Teens, older than 15 years go to the parties on Fridays and Saturdays. On our school we organize school dances 4 times a year.
We think that teenagers in Slovenia are very differently busy. Students who have many interest activities are very busy. Teenager who doesn' t have many activities have a lot of free time and they can rest and relax. We like our week.
