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)

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…

Learning Serbian with Short and Easy Texts - Routines

Aspect in Serbian - Odmoriti or Odmarati?

Do you know the difference between odmoriti and odmArAti (to have a rest)? Which one shows a finished action (perfective aspect), which one shows an action in progress (imperfective aspect)?

If you know the word trAjAti, which means to lAst, it will help you connect the form with double A with the action in progress, which shows that odmArAti is obviously used to show that you are or were "having a  rest / resting".

On the other hand, the form with odmORIti, shows that you have had a rest and that's it, the result is more important than duration, so this form shows the perfective aspect.

Their various forms and differences in present and past tenses are so subtle, so I created a set of exercises for you to learn more about this weird odmoriti-odmarati duo by actually using them:) Before you see all the forms below, try to do this Micromatch exercise:
