About Smiljana Rakonjac

Smiljana Rakonjac

Serbonika’s Serbian Language Teacher

My Story

Hello! My name is Vladimir. I live in Belgrade. I am a graduate professor of Norwegian language and literature, and I have a master’s degree in Serbian as a foreign language. Serbian is my mother tongue.

As a native speaker and someone who enjoys working with people and communicating, I also like to spread knowledge. Above all, I believe that there is a solution to every language problem and dilemma.

During my studies, I acquired a large number of skills that proved very useful for my further improvement when it comes to holding classes. I have several years of experience in teaching Serbian language and culture to foreigners. I developed a large number of methods and useful contents. I adapt the methods to different ages.

Motivation

for teaching others comes primarily from the fact that I want to present Serbian culture and history, because cultural treasures are transmitted through languages. The goal of my classes is gradual adoption of Serbian grammar and vocabulary through communication, but also learning about Serbian culture and tradition.

My Hobby

But am I someone who has an interesting hobby? Of course! Many of them are related to languages: writing songs/poems, stories, researching linguistic etymology and the elvish language. Yes, you read that right, this silly professor likes to read about fictional elvish language. Long live Tolkien! Also I love to explore the world of different mythologies, especially Slavic and Nordic.

However, there is another, perhaps the most important thing unrelated to languages, and that is photography. I have been doing photography for almost 10 years, so I can say that it has grown from a hobby to a great love.

My photographs capture various moments of my life, the nature of Serbia and specific events with the aim of presenting my country in that way as well. You know how they say: “photography is a window to the world” or “a picture speaks more than a thousand words” (In Serbian: “Slika govori više od hiljadu reči”). Do you agree?
