Foreigners Speak Serbian #3

Israeli Historian Speaks Serbian

Interview with Orel Beilinson

In this episode, I present you one of my most talented students, if not the most talented, Orel Belinson. 

How come this Israeli historian speaks Serbian so fluently?

It’s only one of more than 10 languages he speaks. The two Serbian scripts, Cyrillic and Latin, are a piece of cake, compared to the scripts he reads and writes daily, such as the Arabic and Hebrew scripts. But he read some even more complicated scripts, as you’ll find out in this interview. 

Join us as we talk in Serbian about languages, history and some politics, inevitably. (English and Serbian subtitles are available in the video.)

Visit Orel’s website to read more about him.


We talked about:

– Motivation and reasons for learning languages

– Why having a good teacher is crucial when learning “small” languages

– Political situation in Serbia and the surrounding countries

– Tourist experience and food in Serbia
