Serbonika’s Serbian Language Courses


The Best Program to Learn Serbian


Have you suffered the Serbian-learning frustration?

If you tried to learn Serbian, you probably faced one of the two obvious problems with many Serbian language courses, books and applications:

1) You discovered that most Serbian language courses and books are crammed with grammar, giving little context and space to practice. So you ended up with a headache.

2) Other programs and applications, on the other hand, give you vocabulary and phrases, but too little, if any, structure explanations and hardly any training. So you ended up in confusion.

How do I know?

As a professional Serbian teacher, I’ve learned about 15 foreign languages to a different extent. I’m native Serbian (trained to speak Croatian too), fluent in English, Greek, Italian and Spanish, and I’m learning German at the moment. I also co-created the Serbian course for one of the most famous language-learning applications. You might recognize my voice from there.

While I don’t know everything about linguistics, I definitely know A LOT about learning languages and – especially, about learning and teaching Serbian as a foreign language.


The Serbonika Method and Serbian Language Courses

Having worked closely with hundreds of students and learnt 15 languages myself, I have tried and tested countless methods. I observed what worked best and what gave my students a headache.

From the beginning, I’ve been creating materials that I’m now refining and including in Serbonika’s Serbian language courses.  Finally, I have developed my own Serbian teaching method, that has proved to be the most efficient. This method is aimed to:

1) make you speak Serbian in real life,

2) help you absorb the most relevant vocabulary,

3) and train you to form grammatical Serbian sentences with confidence.
