Free Serbian Language Course

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.



Yesterday I released a free version of this course, so you can join it and see whether this way of learning suits you.

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. That will allow me to add more language related lessons for each level.

For example, A1 level now covers not only "The weather/wine is good" but also two new chapters dedicated to members of family and how to introduce them. A2 level doesn't cover only what WAS the weather like, but also who WAS at home/work etc. B1 level is covering asking "kakva vs. kakav" when asking questions such as "What was the party like?" and similar.

Let me share with you two brand new lessons:
  • At A1 level


  • At A2 level 



At the moment the course has more than three hours of content, but it is getting longer and richer each day. Once you join the course, you are given the links to the follow up exercises and quizzes. Since the course is expanding, the price of the course is going to increase accordingly. It is $US49 right now, but for the followers of this blog there is a 50% discount which is valid only in April.

The beauty of this series of the courses is that you will be able to add your suggestions and influence the topic of the upcoming chapters.

The following course will be dedicated to verbs and prepositions which require the Accusative case and I am sure you will love it! For now, do join the free version of this course and leave me your feedback in the comment below or through our joint Facebook page called StudySerbian.

Free Serbian Language Course

If you have followed my blog posts this summer, you have noticed fun photos with short dialogues. These mini lessons grew into the first course, which can help you learn Serbian greetings. It is at the beginner level, so that is why I named it Super Easy Serbian - Greetings A1!

It took me quite a while to create it, as I flicked through thousands of photos, downloaded them and then put everything together. I have had problems with my low quality headset, because of which I had to heavily edit the videos. I hope to get a new cam in October and continue making such courses much faster. My plan is always to offer you three versions of the course:

In order to access the course, you can simply click here to see it online, or download it:



It is visible online, fully accessible from any device and you can play the videos while flicking through it. If you prefer a PDF file, you can download it here, but when you want to watch the video, when you click play, the video will open in the new window, so you will have to restart the PDF file again.

Although there is the list to the additional exercises, which are made for this course, I'll list them below:

Serbian Greetings Challenge

Maybe you have noticed that I started creating a series of different video lessons recently. They are going to make up a completely new course, which is based on all your wishes and needs you've been sharing with me since January.


The idea behind the course is for you to:
  • learn the vocabulary sets first 
  • try to guess what's missing in the series of fun and colourful comics with captions in Serbian Cyrillic, Latin script and English.
  • do lots of fun exercises based on the dialogues and texts
  • become proactive by sending me your short texts, dialogues and voice recordings to get my feedback. 
Hope you like my first video lesson. Before to listening to me, mute the audio first and try to guess which words are missing :) Have fun!

  2. You can write down the answers and then watch the video again and listen to Jeremija giving his responses. 
  3. Has he made any mistakes and if he has, correct the wrong answers (you can write the replies in the comment)


*This is also a smooth intro to the lesson on numbers in Serbian.

Serbian Language 365 - Phrases for Giving Directions

About two years ago I was tinkering with the free version of Camtasia for a month. The result was one part of the Serbian phrase course, covering three topics, both in the Latin alphabet and Cyrillic script. Now when I look back on my early works, I'm quite disappointed and I recon it's high time I made  much clearer video lessons with better background music and wide scope of topics. I bet you agree :)

In the meantime, I'm sure you'll find these two videos covering "Giving directions in Serbian" useful.
