Intensive course in Serbian language
By attending the course you will gain new and improve your current language abilities. After a placement test taken upon the arrival students will be divided into groups according to their knowledge. There are six groups: beginners 1, beginners 2, intermediate 1, intermediate 2, advanced and proficiency. Each group will have an appropriate syllabus, a language instructor, and will work separately from other groups. The emphasis is on developing communicative skills. The theoretic, i.e. systematic aspect of the language is presented in the ways that are most suitable to the needs of every respective level. Lessons are held on weekdays from 9:00 to 14:30 (subject to minor changes).

The course is divided into two sections. In the first one students improve their linguistic and communicative skills on a modern language course. In the second one (linguistic-cultural), students will learn a lot about the Serbian culture through practical language exercises, which is necessary for getting around in Serbian reality and activating the knowledge they gained in class. This is what makes our program special and more popular than other schools. During the course students do not feel intellectual fatigue and are eager to perform all tasks. When the courses are over and they return home, they all feel very pleased about the progress they have made.
