Course structure

Our Croatian/Serbian lessons follow a communicative approach to language teaching, focusing on the language you need to communicate in authentic situations with an emphasis on speaking and listening. Our evening classes are taught by experienced language teachers who are native speakers of the language or equivalent.

Please note that the distribution of course content across terms may vary from year to year. This is due to the variable length of terms in different academic years. There may also be slight content variations at the discretion of the tutor. We may, for example, include additional content when general progress is good, or vary content according to students’ interests.

Learning resources

The course is based on the tutor’s own materials.Students may also want to get a copy of Dobro Došli 1 or Učimo hrvatski 1, which they can use as supplementary material. However, please wait until the first session before buying your course book.
