Serbian Language Podcast

“Stranci”  –  Foreigners Speak Serbian

A Serbian language podcast for Serbian language learners

Creating every episode of our Serbian language podcast was so rewarding. Talking to such interesting people who had so much to share, was fun.

We’re planning the second season of our Serbian language podcast. This time, we’ll host some fantastic and inspiring guests, always with Serbian and  English subtitles, so that all of you can follow and be inspired by our Serbian-loving stories.

We’ll make sure that you learn lots of Serbian words and phrases in every episode. Stay tuned!

Serbian Language Podcast

All episodes in spoken Serbian language translated to English

Informal talk in Serbian, various topics with different people fluent in Serbian, will help enrich your vocabulary and inspire you to learn Serbian

“It’s great to listen to you because you have an ideal way of speaking for a learner like me who can understand a fair bit but struggles to understand when a Serbian speaker speaks at ‘normal’ speed.” – John, YouTube

“Informal but controlled chats in the Serbian language are the best listening practice and a great vocabulary booster.” – Magdalena

About Our Serbian Language Podcast

The content for our Serbian language podcast appears as a video on Serbonika’s YouTube channel. Some episodes are also available as an audio podcast on Anchor, also distributed to other podcasting platforms.

 

Why Make the Serbian Language Podcast

The idea to do it came to me because many students and followers asked me to recommend a podcast for learning Serbian. I looked and I’ve noticed that there is nothing I could really recommend. There are many language learning podcasts, but usually only for the most studied languages. It will be easy if you’re learning French or Spanish, but there’s not much to find for learning Serbian. There are many podcasts for native speakers, but these are not of much use for you until you reach at least a B2 level.

 

A Graded Podcast is Excellent for Language Learning

A good podcast created specifically for language learners can really make a difference. It will help you advance your listening skills and learn many new words organized around various topics. It will help you get used to the way native speaker talks, starting from a more controlled, easy-to-follow speech of the host and guests.

 

How You Can Use the Serbian Language Podcast

Read the title and the description of topics in English. Read the vocabulary list if there is one, and try to remember the words that you don’t know. Write a list of those words, make flashcards, or anything that helps you remember new vocabulary. Then you can listen or watch your chosen Serbian language podcast episode without captions to see what you can understand. Afterwards, you can watch it with Serbian or English captions, depending on your level.

Remember, you can always pause the video to write something down, or rewind to hear something again. You can also watch it at a slower speed, if that’s what you need. One thing that’s really good about podcasts is: you can develop your own way of using them to get what you need.

How I made my solo podcast episodes

I thought of a topic, outlined the structure and the subtopics I wanted to talk about, and then I just talked spontaneously, in a relaxed pace, similarly to the way I speak in class with my students. I tried to explain the words that I use by rephrasing or using synonyms. Occasionally I’ll use an English translation or explain relevant grammar a little bit. It’s good as an additional exercise. For grammar lessons and general language learning, I suggest you to create an account at Serbonika.

In the Foreigners Speak Serbian language podcast, I let my guests share their stories and guide them a little bit with my questions, or help them if they have difficulties finding a word.

Plans about our Future Podcast in Serbian

At the moment we don’t have an ongoing series. But we’ll make sure to publish videos in Serbian with Serbian and English subtitles and transcripts from time to time.
