The Summer School consists of language lessons and afternoon activities. It’s aimed to make you speak Serbian and use the language in daily interactions with confidence. The activities will put you in situations to interact with the Serbs in Serbian, and the Serbian language lessons will prepare you for these interactions.

The program includes guided visits to museums, restaurants, parks, the Sava beach, fieldtrips, and home activities at the Jelić family house, cooking, grilling, or just hanging out.

The Serbonika Summer Course is ideal for you if you’re at an A2+ or B1 level and above in Serbian: you’ve been learning Serbian for some time and are familiar with the most important grammar rules and vocabulary.

You will study Serbian in a small group (8 students) so you can be actively involved all the time and get personal approach.

Attention!    We can only accept a small number of people and the program is very personal: you will be our guest.

    • Welcoming party on Sunday, before the lessons start
    • 3 hours (4 school classes) of classroom language lessons 5 days a week, from Monday to Friday
    • 2 hours of afternoon activities (visits to archeological sites, museums, library, lectures, workshops, kolo dancing lessons)
