Hi Marina, here I am again.
I don't know but I feel a little lost with all theses posts.
I really enjoy to learn new languages but I feel more confortable to learn supported by the grammar rules.
I'm trying hard to undertand the language and its rules.
I don't have many problems with the pronunciation. My main problem is to increase my vocabulary.
So, thanks for the posts and just a question? When will you start to talk about the verbs, verbal conjugations, verbal tenses, substantives, adjectives, etc?
Is there a specific ending for verbs, substantives, adjectives, adverbs, etc?

Hi Paulo and thanks for the comment. As you can see, I am a bit lost without the feedback :o( I started this blog mainly as a tool for my online lessons. I used it for recording my voice, posting it on GCast and writing the list of useful words. Since my students are of different levels, I realized that this blog is just the first step. That is why I created Serbian4beginners.blogspot.com, which you already subscribed to. At the moment I am in the process of creating my own site which will be well organized and divided into levels and grammatical points. Nevertheless, I will make one post with verb conjugations for you today. Thanks for following the blog and useful feedback :o)

Idiot's guide to the Cyrillic alphabet

During my sojourn in Montenegro, I encountered both the use of Latin and Cyrillic versions of the alphabet. This was a great opportunity to pick up and understand more of the Cyrillic alphabet.
Signs for streets & squares were in the Cyrillic alphabet, which is based on the one sound, one letter system. I had a steep learning curve in reading Cyrillic, particularly when I was trying to read the inscriptions on the Partizan memorials for my English compatriots!



Now I am sharing with you, dear blog readers, on how I started to learn the Cyrillic alphabet. I found it easier by breaking down the alphabet into sections. All in all, it took me just over 1 hour to get myself acquainted with the alphabet.

Verb Conjugations in Serbian

Serbian belongs to a group of (highly) flective languages, and as such its verbs have conjugations. This means that you have to pay attention to the suffixes which are added to the stem of the verbs. If you have a dictionary of Serbian, you will notice that infinitive endings are -iti, -ati, -eti, -ti and sometimes -ći. In order to learn conjugations, it is wise to know that the suffixes for each person singular or plural are added to the verb stem (base verb without infinitive endings). For example:
infinitive of the verb 'to love': voleti
verb stem: vol (so, in the photo, you can se 'VOLim' not 'volEm' (which is wrong, but not in all parts of Serbia ... I think if you LOVE someone, whichever language you are using, you cannot be wrong ;)
