The article deals with legal options concerning the regulation of the status of Slovene language in Croatia, with the implementation of options of learning Slovene in the counties of Varaždin and Medžimurje, as well as with results of research studies on learning Slovene, performed amongst students of two secondary schools and their parents. According to the results, students and parents have a positive attitude towards learning Slovene. Command of Slovene is especially important for them, in terms of better chances for schooling and employment in Slovenia. It also turned out that there are few members of the Slovene minority amongst pupils learning Slovene.
