What my students say about the course
“I had been looking for effective online Serbian lessons for a while. I discovered “Tako Lako Beginner” online course and I’m loving it! It is very complete, easy to use and the content is great. Videos are very well explained and the complementary materials make learning Serbian a fun and effective experience.
Besides, Magdalena is always open and available for questions and comments. Great online Serbian course, can’t wait to sign up for the next level!”
Mariana Leaños Perez, Communicologist and Public Relations Representative from Mexico
“I started the Tako Lako Beginner’s Serbian course at the end of August, and within a few months I’d noticed a big improvement in my pronunciation, reading and writing. Magdalena’s focus on correct pronunciation (a topic usually reduced to no more than a few lines in textbooks) and teaching of everyday phrases helped me speak with more confidence.
I particularly liked being taught by 5-15 minute videos as I can replay them as many times as I need, and use them to practise listening, reading, writing, and speaking. These videos give the feeling of an online 1-1 Serbian lesson.
Each unit concludes with a cultural video (there are 10 in all) that teach interesting facts I didn’t know, and now I can talk about them in Serbian! Hvala puno, Magdalena!”
Sarah Caroline Hadžiomerović Crnčević, Swedish language teacher and translator from England

The Tako Lako Beginner course manual and the online Serbian courses go hand-in-hand for a learning experience of the highest quality taught by a genuine and passionate teacher. […]
If you think that an online course isn’t for you, well, once you experience the Tako Lako Beginner course, you will quickly change your mind. Don’t wait any longer to begin learning this difficult, but fascinating language – you won’t regret it.”
Ivonne Coechig, English and German language teacher from Luxemburg
This course is top-notch! I’ve tried many platforms for different languages, and this one is brilliant. It is informative and fun. It keeps me interested and motivated to learn more.
Having studied other languages I am enjoying your course by far the most… primarily because of your excellent teaching! I look forward to continuing, and interacting with you in the future.
I especially like the “Do you know Serbia” videos: They are beautiful! I’ve used them for practising both listening and pronunciation, and as a writing exercise.
This is a fantastic platform! My girlfriend is Serbian, and we were so thrilled to find out that, finally, there is an excellent course of Serbian for me!
