Tic Tac Toe Serbian

Let me share with you a new way of learning online, asynchronously, with my Tic-Tac-Toe Serbian series. Namely, the course is based on the interactive books, which are slowly paced, so you can use them to learn Serbian by yourself, or with a teacher or a family member. 

I have created four textbooks so far, and they can be fully accessed through my Patreon pages. Each level follows  my 

The main difference from the previous printed books is that they are online and they are interactive, which means all the links are clickable, you can hear me pronouncing each word. Furthermore, you can record your own short audio answers and keep them in the book and you can write in your copy too.

Serbian 401 - Aspect in Serbian

Since there aren't many exercises on perfective and imperfective aspect in Serbian, I'll share all my video lessons and exercises for you to practice. 

Aspect in Serbian - Short Explanation

The easiest way to see the difference and the most frequent forms are to contrast present and past tense in Serbian. 

Aspect in Serbian - Trošiti vs Potrošiti  

  1. The Perfective Aspect of the verbs in Serbian shows most naturally in the past tense, denoting the finished action: Potrošila sam puno novca na kompjuter (I have spent /I spent a lot of money on the computer)
  2. The Imperfective Aspect shows clearly in the present tense, showing duration: Dok ti štediš novac, ja ga trošim (While you are saving money, I am spending it) - HOWEVER, it can be used for regular actions and habits as well: koliko novca trošiš svakog mesec? (how much money do you spend each month) 


Aspect in Serbian - Video Exercise

Therefore, this word order exercise is dedicated only to this clear PRESENT/PAST distinction 



For more, make sure you follow Serbian 301 and 401 posts!

Serbian 301 - Retelling Story

In Serbian 301 one is practicing to confidently ask and answer questions about some past tense events. This can be practiced in different ways:

  • talking about your past, or past events in your life
  • talking about your friends and family and their experiences
  • retelling a short story that we have previously learnt
  • retelling an interesting film/book plot
Additionally, you can also practice telling a story based on a suitable song. Let's take Kristing by Zdravko Čolić, for example!

For the sake of understanding here comes a page with the lyrics translation (not the perfect one, though, but you'll get the gist) and now you can practice retelling the story with the following set of exercises:

  2. Gde je bio salaš?
  3. Šta sve znači "društvo"?
  4. Ko je stajao na vratima?

Serbian 301 - Word Order with SE




From the very first lesson, one gets to learn that funny "se" in the sentence: "Zovem se... " (My name is...). Often times it doesn't mean anything, or simply isn't translated into English. That's why you need to do a lot of exercises to get accustomed to this form. 

Serbian 301 - Word Order with SE

Let's start with the first exercise where you simply need to say how much these sentences are true for you. Try using the following phrases:

  • Takođe
  • Isto
  • Ponekad
  • Uglavnom 
  • Nikada 


Exercise with Word Order with SE

Now, that you are familiar with these sentences, you can easily do the following exercise - putting the words in order. Have fun!
