Slovenian is a South Slavic language, and like other Slavic languages, the word used to express gratitude is hvala. This is an extremely informal and casual way of thanking someone. You can say this when someone has not done an exceptionally huge favor but a small act of kindness that matters.

For instance, if your grandmother makes you cookies, you could say Hvala Vam. Similarly, if your teacher praises you for something and you want to show gratitude in Slovenian, you could say Hvala Vam.
