    One of the basic goals of Slovenian classes in primary and secondary schools in Slovenia is to develop communication ability, which consists of various components – one of them is language ability, which includes orthographic ability. Despite large number of hours of Slovenian classes during the whole educational path there are many adults in Slovenia who have trouble following the orthographic rules of Slovenian language. This fact should be taken into consideration by teachers and future teachers, since they are the role models for the pupils and students. The curriculum for students of the Faculty of Education at the University of Ljubljana (PEF UL) who study to become primary and preschool teachers includes Slovenian classes, while other study courses curricula do not. In this thesis we tried to find out how students of different educational study courses at PEF UL evaluate their knowledge of orthographic rules and what they would like to change in the area of studying and teaching these rules, and also how often they use Slovenian Orthography and in what form. This was done using quantitative research. For this purpose we made a written questionnaire. The results showed that students of PEF UL evaluate their knowledge of orthographic rules as quite good and they state various reasons for this. The attitudes of students towards teaching and using orthographic rules in primary and secondary schools vary a lot, but all the students think that Slovenian classes should focus more on the linguistics. The college students of primary and preschool education think that their study includes enough hours of Slovenian classes, while the students of other courses who do not have Slovenian classes in their curriculum wish this would change. The students of PEF UL consider the following of orthographic rules to be important in their future educational professions as well as in everyday life. The survey also conveys that Slovenian Orthography is most frequently used by future teachers of primary schools, and it is used mainly in e-form. With this survey we would like to point out to all present and future teachers in Slovenian schools that the correct use of Slovenian standard language in written texts is very important in all grades and in all subjects, not only in Slovenian classes. At the same time, the results show that Slovenian classes should be included in the curriculum for all PEF UL students.
