Learning Serbian - Wannabe Lesson 1
Now, for all of you who are not yet familiar with the concept of wannabe lessons, here will be given a brief intro to what you can expect to gain from attending these lessons… Well, to be honest, you will probably not gain a lot. I will try to make these lessons funny (not that I think I actually can make you laugh), I’ll try to make them interesting (providing that you are interested in these kinds of things) and I’ll try to teach you something about my native language, Serbian, in correlation with the English language.
As I have already mentioned in the wannabe introduction, the Serbian language will prove to be very hard for a foreigner to learn, especially for people whose mother tongue is English. Therefore, I will here give you some examples, stories and advice on how to try to learn Serbian, or at least a little of the language, with the least effort possible. However, if you are really serious about learning Serbian, I strongly suggest that you seek seriously serious advice on this subject elsewhere.
To start off, I’ll tell you a little something about my country. When I started learning English, which was in my third grade, we had an old bat of a teacher who, as I can conclude now after many years have passed, didn’t have a clue about teaching or, for that matter, speaking the language in question. However, she made sure that we learn all about the countries in which English was spoken, the people who spoke the language, their customs, their religion and so on. Therefore, me and all of my class mates ended up spending the third and the fourth grade learning about London, Her Majesty The Queen, New York, Washington DC, Bill Clinton, the aborigines (although they had nothing to do with English, they had everything to do with an English speaking country), we even had to learn about the history of British kings and queens, a topic which was not at all interesting to any of us.
Naturally, I will not get my revenge on the old bat by making you read about the history of my country or about kings and emperors of Serbia. You can do this on your own if you are interested in history. What I am going to do is tell you a little something about my country and probably include some of the other countries around my country, as the history of Serbia is closely related to all the other countries in the Balkans. Therefore, please feel free to attend the wannabe lesson 2 if you are interested in learning more...
