While adding new chapters and lessons to 5 Minute Serbian course 1, I started planning the next course which will be entirely dedicated to the verbs and prepositions which require a noun/pronoun in the Accusative case.
Let me show one of these videos with which you can practice: Present / past tense of the following verbs: videti, tražiti, naći, uzeti (to see, to look for, to find, to take): deca vide / deca su videla - deca traže / deca su tražila - deca su našla ... - deca su uzelaThe Accusative with Sg.

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.
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.

As with Easter in Britain, Orthodox Easter observers continue fasting through Holy Week, ending their fast on Orthodox Easter Sunday.
Since this blog is dedicated to language learning, let's focus on a few fresh videos about Easter in this region and diaspora, with authentic language. For the previous years' blog posts on this topic, check out this link.
