Foreigners Speak Serbian #1

A German Speaks Serbian

Interview with Henning Jochem

How one German fell in love with the Slavic languages. He studied the English language and literature. Then he visited a friend in Poland and loved it there… Afterwards he visited Serbia and decided to start learning Serbian.

He is now fluent in Polish and Serbian and speaks some Russian.

I present you my student, my dear friend and my German teacher: Henning Jochem from Berlin.

We talked about:

– How knowing another Slavic language both helps and obstructs your Serbian

– Why learning a new script is so difficult and what it takes to master Cyrillic

– Can you speak Serbian in Croatia and Slovenia

– Music and festivals in Serbia

– The best Balkan food in Germany
