Yugoslavia was formed in 1918 and existed through most of the 20th century. For much of this time it was ruled by the communist General Tito who tended to distance his country from the west.
Following his death internal tensions rose and the country divided and broke up into various states. In general those states began to look to the west and learning English.
Currently there is a great drive to join the European Union and learning English has become a priority.
Yugoslavia broke into:
- Bosnia & Herzegovina
- Macedonia (FYROM)
