Foreigners Speak Serbian #2

A Tatar Teaches Serbian

Interview with Azat Fattakhov

How did it happen that a Tatar teaches Serbian, Croatian, Bosnian and Montenegrin?

He wanted to help and travel the Europe. He found his quest in the Velebit mountain in Croatia, near the Adriatic sea, while taking care of the bears and educating tourists.

In less then a year he learned Croatian and Serbian so well that he started to teach new volunteers. He adopted a special method and helped them start having basic communication with Croats and Serbs on a daily basis.

In this Serbian language podcast, you’ll listen about how a Tatar teaches Serbian, Croatian, Bosnian and Montenegrin now, how he started, and why he doesn’t teach Russian. 

I present you Azat Fattakhov from Kazan.

We talked about:

– How to survive meeting a bear

– A very popular Russian method for learning languages quickly 

– Differences and similarities between Serbian and Russian, Tatar and Turkish

– Vegetarian life in the Balkans

– What to focus on when starting Serbian, Croatian, Bosnian and Montenegrin
