Have you tried learning Serbian before?

If you’ve already tried to learn Serbian, you probably suffered the famous “Serbian-learning frustration”.

That means you’ve faced the two obvious problems with many Serbian language courses, books and applications:


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


2) Other programs and applications give you vocabulary and phrases, but too little 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 and Russian 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, and creating Serbian language courses.

Innovative Method for Serbian Language Courses

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

From the beginning of my teaching career, 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 understand and speak Serbian in real life,

2) help you absorb the most relevant vocabulary,

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

Really the Best Beginner Serbian Language Course

The most complete beginner Serbian course that can be found online for A1-A2 level, as our students testify

Having studied other languages I am enjoying your course by far the most. Primarily because of your excellent teaching. I’ve tried many platforms for different languages, and this one is brilliant. It is informative and fun. It keeps me interested and motivated to learn more.

– Melanie

Your course is excellent. Although it is a little basic for my level, however I have learnt new things. As you’re aware, there aren’t many good Serbian online courses available, but then yours really stood out, and I wasn’t wrong!


Thank you so much for your hard work, and congratulations! You’ve made a fantastic platform. My girlfriend is Serbian, and we were so thrilled to find out that, finally, there is an excellent course of Serbian for me!

I had been looking for effective online Serbian lessons for a while. I discovered Serbonika and I’m loving it! It is very complete, easy to use and the content is great. Everything is very well explained and the complementary materials make learning Serbian a fun and effective experience. Besides, Magdalena is always open and available for questions and comments. Great online Serbian course, can’t wait to sign up for the next level!

Within a few months after I started, I’d noticed a big improvement in my pronunciation, reading and writing. I was delighted to be able to order in restaurants and ask for things in a shop and be understood! I particularly like videos, as I can replay them as many times as I need. They give the feeling of an online 1-1 Serbian lesson. Each unit includes cultural lessons that teach interesting facts I didn’t know. And now I can talk about them in Serbian!
