Conjugations in Serbian - to Shave

Why Conjugations of Brijati - To Shave

While I was watching RTS1 today I saw a very interesting and insightful story about a very old "brica", a barber who works in  "berbernica". I looked it up on Youtube, but couldn't find it on RTS1 Channel. However, there was a similar story which can be turned in another interesting lesson at an upper-intermediate or advanced level.



How to use this video and introduce relevant verb conjugations?


  • As usual, it's always great to elicit the vocabulary based on watching the video, without the audio:
  1. BRICA - barber
  2. BRIJATI Present (brijem / brijes/ brije // brijemo / brijete/ briju) -to shave (impf)
  3. BRIJATI Past (brijao / brijala / brijalo // brijali/ brijale/ brijala) - shaved (past)
  4. BRIJANJE - shaving
  5. OBRIJAN - shaved
  6. OBRIJATI - to shave (perf)
  7. IZBRIJATI/IZBRIJVATI/IZBRIJAVANJE - to clean shave
  8. BERBERNICA
  9. Collocations: brijati + bradu/glavu, savladati brijanje, brijanje glave/brade, ucenje brijanja, vezbanje brijanja, oblikovanje brade
  • Now, let's watch the video with audio this time and simply encircle the words, conjugations and collocations as you hear them. 
  • The last step is vocabulary practice, which is soon to be uploaded onto Serbian School website with videos and exercises.
