Knowing common phrases and customs will help you blend in, but grammar is essential if you are to reach an advanced stage.

I am a dedicated Serbian and Croatian language teacher. I have been teaching languages since 2005. My name is Magdalena Petrović Jelić.

I am also a polyglot and a language learner. Apart from Serbian and Croatian, I speak English, Greek, Italian, Spanish and French. At the moment I’m learning German and Russian.

Here’s what my students say:

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!

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!

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.

Magdalena really is an excellent teacher! She is always positive, knowledgeable and strict enough. Lessons are interesting with her and it is never boring. Thank you!
