Marina's a great teacher. She's so encouraging and helpful. Her materials are clear and useful. I'd really recommend her lessons, even if you're a bit nervous about it (she'll soon make you feel comfortable with it).

Marina's teaching methodology is effective and highly successful. You start speaking Serbian in a true-to-life situations from the first lesson. You are motivated my the tasks she creates, you start using grammar just been taught relying on your own experience, which in very engaging. I like her approach to recycling and revising the given material. She has a unique personality, her level of expertise is superb. 

Marina is excellent at making the class exciting and interesting (while useful at the same time). I am learning a LOT each time from her!

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 ;)
