Free Serbian Language Course

Since many of my students told me how easy it is to learn Serbian by singing, I decided to introduce nice and catchy tunes with nice and easy Serbian collocations into my new Five Minute Serbian course.



Yesterday I released a free version of this course, so you can join it and see whether this way of learning suits you.

At first I thought it would be a great idea to organize each course from the very beginner to the most advanced levels (from A1 to C2), but my students suggested I should divide them into two groups - from A1 to B1 and another one from B2 to C2. That will allow me to add more language related lessons for each level.

For example, A1 level now covers not only "The weather/wine is good" but also two new chapters dedicated to members of family and how to introduce them. A2 level doesn't cover only what WAS the weather like, but also who WAS at home/work etc. B1 level is covering asking "kakva vs. kakav" when asking questions such as "What was the party like?" and similar.

Let me share with you two brand new lessons:
  • At A1 level


  • At A2 level 



At the moment the course has more than three hours of content, but it is getting longer and richer each day. Once you join the course, you are given the links to the follow up exercises and quizzes. Since the course is expanding, the price of the course is going to increase accordingly. It is $US49 right now, but for the followers of this blog there is a 50% discount which is valid only in April.

The beauty of this series of the courses is that you will be able to add your suggestions and influence the topic of the upcoming chapters.

The following course will be dedicated to verbs and prepositions which require the Accusative case and I am sure you will love it! For now, do join the free version of this course and leave me your feedback in the comment below or through our joint Facebook page called StudySerbian.

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 each verb. If you have a dictionary of Serbian, you will notice that infinitive endings are -iti, -ati, -eti, or simply -ti and sometimes -ći. In order to learn the 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). 

The conjugation system of Serbian verbs is rather complex. There are several classes of regular verbs distinguished according to certain features the verbs within a class share. (I copied this sentence from Wikipedia, so you can follow the link to see the conjugations of the verb 'RADITI' (to work) to get the idea how it looks like in different tenses.)

As you could see, it is not only the present tense, but we need also to learn how to use the verbs in different tenses. Theref…

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.
