Ko rano rani dve sreće grabi

KO rano rani DVE sreće grabi

The early bird catches the worm

Success comes to those who prepare well and put in effort.

In Serbian, there is a very similar proverb, but it is much more general, and there is neither a bird, nor a worm mentioned. It sounds very general, something like ‘Those who get up early, catch 2 happy events ” (literal translation, don’t laugh)

Your Serbian lesson KO RANO RANI DVE SREĆE GRABI: vocabulary

KO means WHO

RANO means EARLY

RANI means GETS UP EARLY

DVE means TWO

SREĆE means HAPINESS (in Serbian used as plural here)

GRABI means GRABS

Your Serbian lesson KO RANO RANI DVE SREĆE GRABI: grammar

Ko je to? means Who is it?

Ko si ti? means Who are you?

Ko sam ja? means Who am I?

Sooooooooooooo, how do you say in Serbian the following:

I am ?

You are?

It is?

You are right - it isn’t difficult at all!!!

JA SAM means I am

TI SI means You are

ON JE means He is

ONA JE means She is

ONO JE means It is

Now, how about Plural ? Let’s try it again:

1. Ko smo mi?

2. Ko ste vi? Ko ste Vi?

3. Ko su oni? Ko su one? Ko su ona?

If you have any idea for the verb To Be Plural form, send them as comments.

I really like this proverb! Nice!
I also like this poslovica:
Ko uči znaće, ko štedi imaće

Verlo dobro
Srdačan pozdrav

Hvala Meidy na komentaru! Kako ti se svidja (= how do you like) poslovica (the proverb) "dobar i lud su braca rodjena" ? (the good and bad are brothers - meaning that the good people are actually not much different from the silly ones)- I've been thinking about this one lately.
