Heh, and we in Norway complains about how dangerous it is for people to learn foreign languages in school in our country.

Very good, Macedonia. =)

Those languages are not all that foreign, to be honest. Albanians constitute a large minority in Macedonia while Serbian is understood by most people. Nonetheless, a good move.
