In this episode, I present you one of my most talented students, if not the most talented, Orel Belinson. 

How come this Israeli historian speaks Serbian so fluently?

It’s only one of more than 10 languages he speaks. The two Serbian scripts, Cyrillic and Latin, are a piece of cake, compared to the scripts he reads and writes daily, such as the Arabic and Hebrew scripts. But he read some even more complicated scripts, as you’ll find out in this interview. 

Join us as we talk in Serbian about languages, history and some politics, inevitably. (English and Serbian subtitles are available in the video.)

Interview with Azat Fattakhov

How did it happen that a Tatar teaches Serbian, Croatian, Bosnian and Montenegrin?

He wanted to help and travel the Europe. He found his quest in the Velebit mountain in Croatia, near the Adriatic sea, while taking care of the bears and educating tourists.

In less then a year he learned Croatian and Serbian so well that he started to teach new volunteers. He adopted a special method and helped them start having basic communication with Croats and Serbs on a daily basis.

In this Serbian language podcast, you’ll listen about how a Tatar teaches Serbian, Croatian, Bosnian and Montenegrin now, how he started, and why he doesn’t teach Russian. 

I present you Azat Fattakhov from Kazan.

We talked about:

– How to survive meeting a bear

– Differences and similarities between Serbian and Russian, Tatar and Turkish

– Vegetarian life in the Balkans

– What to focus on when starting Serbian, Croatian, Bosnian and Montenegrin
