    Aw, this is too cute! Going to be saying I Love You to my dog and my imaginary cats on Valentine’s Day in multiple languages now :p.

    Also the neat freak in me is completely in love with the fact that you alphabetized this list.

    sorry but the Yugoslavian language does not exist and never did! it was referred to as Serbo-Croatian before, but those are two languages actually so the people in former Yugoslavia spoke several languages: Serbian, Croatian, Slovenian, Bosnian, Macedonian 🙂 and in Croatian I love you is Volim te , you don’t need to add Ja (I).
