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

Learn Serbian by Singing - Ne vredi plakati

With so many youtube videos with beautiful Serbian songs being deleted, I somehow stopped creating blog posts covering this topic, although I keep using songs in my lessons on a regular basis. However, with a new tool at hand, I'll be able to recreate all my song-exercises and post them on my server with exercises based on the lyrics.

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 - Orthography in Serbian

Although learning spelling or orthography  in any language isn't any fun, I found a way to make it fun - by creating "Whack a mole" exercise, or "udari krticu" :) 

How to Practice Orthography in Serbian

While the idea of this game is to hit a mole bearing the wrong answer, I noticed while learning German that this principle enforced the wrong answer in my  mind. Therefore, for my students of Serbian, I created this game based on "hitting the right mole", which will draw your attention to the correct spelling. Once you figure one which ones are the correct ones, jot them down!


Uživajte :)
