Serbian Language Courses

Made with Love

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

Magdalena is an outstanding teacher of Serbian and Croatian. Coming with a smattering of Serbian, I can proudly say that within less than two years I am now somewhere between B2 and C1, thanks to Magdalena’s precise and incisive instruction of the language (including all four domains and with a special emphasis, due to my request, on a deep understanding of grammar and structures) and the Yugoslav culture.

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, using Serbian as much as possible. She 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!

Magdalena is incredibly engaging and she encourages me to speak Serbian by asking questions in Serbian that are challenging but never impossible. I look forward to more great lessons with her.

I’ve been taking Croatian lessons from Magdalena for over two years. She is always prepared, has the answers to all of my grammar questions, and constantly finds interesting new lessons to teach. If you’re like me and want structure, homework, and real communication, Magdalena is the teacher for you!

Magdalena is an excellent and experienced teacher, plus she’s nice and funny. We talked about verbal aspect, one of the trickiest things in Serbian, and she made it very interesting and much clearer.
