Magdalena Petrović Jelić

Zdravo! Ja sam Magdalena – a dedicated Serbian and Croatian language teacher, a polyglot and a language learner. 

My mission is to help people around the world learn Serbian and Croatian.

I aim to create the best possible materials for that. I developed my own method for learning Serbian: Tako Lako.

You can choose to learn with my prerecorded online courses or take individual lessons with me, or even both.

My students’ kind words

A combination of a structured plan and personalized lessons

“What I find particularly great about our lessons is the way Lena is able to combine a structured lesson plan, while also allowing my questions to personalize each class. She gives very clear explanations for vocabulary and grammar, using Serbian as much as possible. Lena is professional, friendly, and easy to talk with. I thoroughly enjoy our lessons and feel like I’ve improved a lot since we started! Hvala puno, Leno!”

John Kiappes, university researcher and teacher

Speaking Serbian from the start

“I like the materials and find Magdalena’s presentation very clear. I like how the target language is used from the start. Even if I’m quite nervous, she is encouraging and allows me time to think and I don’t feel pressured. At the end of every lesson, I feel like I’ve really learned something. Hvala lepo!”

Michael Liddle, language teacher and translator

If you want to learn Serbian or Croatian, this is your lady!

“I would really recommend working with Magdalena: she is very thorough, very patient and gives you enough of a safe space to talk and learn through your mistakes. I have regularly sent her written homework and have been impressed by the detail she goes into correcting it. I was recently back in Croatia speaking with friends in Croatian and I was surprised how far my spoken language and my confidence had come on working with Magdalena in the weeks prior to me going out there. So if you want to learn Srpski / Hrvatski this is your lady!”
