    The standard literary language is not the language we learn the first; it is either a dialect or any other non-literary genre, i.e. the language spoken by our parents. Proficiency in the literary language is of great importance since it has had an important role in in the history of establishing the Slovenian nation. The literary language is widespread throughout the territory of Slovenia, dialects and other non-literary genres are however confined to a small part of Slovenia. As regards the standard literary language, we consciously and proactively begin to learn it in elementary school. It is therefore of crucial importance that a teacher whether he or she is a class or subject teacher masters the standard literary language, uses it in the classroom and encourages pupils to apply it. The objective of the empirical research carried out was to determine the actual use of the literary and the non-literary language in some elementary schools in the Upper and Central Vipava Valley by teachers and pupils and the implications of the dialect of the Primorska region in teaching speech. The sample consisted of ten teachers coming from the Primorska region and ten audio recordings of lessons of these teachers. Analysis of the results showed that the literary language as well as the non-literary language is used in the classroom both by teachers and pupils; but in general the literary language. Pupils, unlike teachers, prefer to use the non-literary language. It was also found that teachers do not ask pupils to use the literary language. Nevertheless, teachers find it vital that pupils learn how to speak the literary language on one hand and they find it important that the dialect is nurtured on the other hand. Pupils in class do not endeavour to talk specifically the literary language. Moreover, teachers interviewed during the study were not encouraged by all professors to speak the literary language. The interviewed teachers and their professors mostly all in class used the literary language.
