You know some basic Croatian, enough to get you by, but there is nothing that will impress more than knowing a local phrase or slang that you can slip into a conversation…
Our ‘Word / Phrase of the Week will teach you a variety of words and phrases commonly used in Croatia, but not commonly found in language learning material.
ne zna ni ‘ko pije ni ‘ko plaća
The phrase ne zna ni ‘ko pije ni ‘ko plaća is basically a phrase used to sum up when you can not make head nor tail of a situation. Can be for complete disorganisation or chaos. It is often used when something is not really clear what is going on when looking at it and can be used for a number of cases which lacks organisation or order. The literal translation is – You don’t know who is drinking or who is paying.
