Jesam or Sam in Serbian?

After uploading a hundred of videos both from Serbian 101 and Serbian 102 course, and revising each of them, Ivan decided to help me with his 3D effects vidos. So far he's made 30 short videos with the verbs used in the course, in the present and past tense so far, but he plans to make 5 more each day.

I'll post some of them here on the blog, but for the complete version, refer to the Serbian101-102 course. Here comes its short description:

Serbian 101 &102 is perfect for absolute and false beginners in Serbian. It is organized in such a way that you can either follow it chronologically, or choose only the topics you are interested in. Each topic consists of an explanatory video lesson and then video exercises with links to follow-up quizzes with instant feedback. 
There are more than 100 lessons making well over 10 hours of video lessons and exercises which take you from the very start to the pre-intermediate level, covering:
  • Tenses: Present Simple and Past Simple Tense
  • Cases: Nominative, Accusative, Instrumental and Locative
  • Modals: Can, Must
  • Pronouns: Personal and Possessive Pronouns
  • Adjectives: Possessive Adjectives and Noun-adjective Agreement
  • Numbers: Cardinal and Ordinal
as well as basic:
  • functions such as:
    • Greetings
    • Introductions
    • Asking for Clarification/Explanation
    • Asking about Directions
    • Giving Directions
    • Requesting 
    • Offering
    • Expressing Likes and Dislikes
    • Asking about Likes and Dislikes
  • situations such as:
      • Meeting People
      • Small Talk
      • In a Restaurant
      • Shopping
      • Arranging a Meeting
      • Talking about Family
      • Talking about Routines
      • Talking about your Life
  • vocabulary topics such as:
    • Family members
    • Numbers
    • Food
    • Souvenirs
    • Places in a city
    • Countries and Cities
    • Means of transport
    • Colours
    • Jobs and occupations

Each topic has and additional PDF with a summary where you can find vocabulary list, links to exercises and  relaxing and popular songs from Serbia plus a short note on culture and customs. 
The course is mainly recorded in the Latin script, because the Latin and Cyrillic scripts are equally used in Serbia and predominantly used in Montenegro, Bosnia and Croatia. Once you get familiar with the words and basics, in the following course I add the same texts from Serbian 101-102 which are in the Cyrillic script. In that way  the course material is revised and the Serbian Cyrillic script is learnt effortlessly.
Who Should Attend? 
Serbian 101 &102 is perfect for absolute and false beginners in Serbian, Bosnian, Croatian or Montenegrin.
Since it covers all the situations tourists may find themeselves in, it is also great for people visiting Serbia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Croatia.
Because of the video lessons with grammatical explanations, and numerous additional exercises, the course is also very insightful for students who want to refresh grammar or practise for their exams.
