Serbian A2 to B2 Video Lesson

Serbian A2 to B2 Video Lesson 

Here comes a video lesson which will help you practice Serbian at different levels. 


As you can see, there are three phrases. 


Serbian A2 Video Lesson - Accusative

The verbs such as TRAŽI - to search VIDETI - to see or VOLETI - to love (jesti, piti, slušati, gledati, kupiti, naći, etc.) trigger the Accusative case endings in the words that follow it (these can be not only nouns, but also numbers and adjectives in front of the noun)

What does ti mean?

It will change the upcoming word(s) in such a way that

  • anything that is in singular, ending in -a, will drop the -a and change to -u. For example: čokoladA ... Tražim čokoladU = I am lookin for chocolate :o)


Serbian B1 Video Lesson - Genitive 

The following prepositions:

  • pored - next to
  • između - between
  • ispred - in front of
  • iza - behind
  • ispod - under
  • iznad - above

trigger the Genitive case in the words that follow them:

Example: Jaje je pored slaninE. (the nominative case is: slaninA)

Singular:
-A>>> -E
slanina - slanine
torta - torte
kruška - kruške
lubenica - lubenice

-anything else >>> -A
mleko - mleka
jaje - jajeTa
đus - đusa
sok - soka
tiganj - tiganja
hleb - hleba
sir - sira

 


Serbian B1/B2 Video Lesson - If Clauses

Potencijal = Second conditional or If Clauses in English
(or If I could..., I would... or If I had, I would...)


    DA+ PRESENT, JA BIH + GLAGOL+o/la

Da mogu da jedem lubenicu, ja bih je (po)jela.


     KAD BIH + GLAGOL+o/la, JA BIH + GLAGOL+o/la

Kad bih mogla da jedem lubenicu, ja bih je pojela. Prevod: If I could eat a watermelon now, I would eat it.

Marina has been a fantastic teacher. She has taken me from knowing absolutely no Serbian and brought me to a level where I am excited to live and thrive in a country where they speak Serbian. I have recommended her and will continue to pass her name along for other students who are interested in learning. I look forward to continuing to keep in touch with her. Katie, USA, 2014
I have been working with Marina twice a week through Udemy since late August and LOVE her and all of her videos and classroom work through Udemy. It is so helpful to be able to log in at any time during the day or night and listen and watch her videos. She breaks each lesson down very well and makes it simple to learn and to interact and practice on my own before our classtime. I will highly recommend Marina to other friends as well as Udemy!
