After Russia, Serbia is the largest producer of raspberries in the world, accounting for a third of all global production.

Zdravo! The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines Serbo-Croatian as the Serbian and Croatian languages together with the Slavic speech of Bosnia, Herzegovina, and Montenegro, taken as a single language with regional variants. When it comes to writing, a strong split differentiates Croatian and Serbian, as Serbian is officially written in the Cyrillic alphabet.

The best part about living in Los Angeles is...

The best part about living in Los Angeles is its diversity. Even though I have been living here for only 17 years, this city created and fostered in me a comforting sense of belonging. The most perfect climate additionally strengthens this bond.

Recommend a place to visit where Serbo/ Croatian is the native language, and tell us why you like it.

Belgrade, Serbia's capital, attracts with the numerous testaments of its centuries-old existence. Croatian islands like Hvar and Brač are particularly alluring.

What Serbo/ Croatian film or musical artist do you recommend students watch or listen to?

There are several films and bands that I consider worth watching and listening. Films: 'Sjećaš li se Dolly Bell?,' 'Otac na sluzbenom putu,' 'Ko to tamo peva,' 'Okupacija u 26 slika,' 'Cigani lete u nebo.' Music bands: Bajaga i Instruktori, Film, Idoli, Prljavo Kazaliste, Azra, Indeksi, Orkestar za svadbe i sahrane.

What most surprises your students about Serbo/ Croatian?

The biggest surprise that Serbo/Croatian brings is the existence of seven cases and the absence of articles. Curious about these seven mysterious cases? Please come to class.

Learning a new language can change your life.

Knowing how to say at least a few words in another language will break the ice at any business meeting, and will certainly make your vacation more pleasant.

You may also want to get in touch with your heritage by learning some of the language that your ancestors spoke. Language is a particularly good bridge in this regard, as it can often be a guide to the ways in which different cultures express not only ideas, but emotions. By exposing you to every aspect of the human condition, language allows you to study the past, understand the present, and ponder the future.

Choose a language and begin to enjoy the extraordinary benefits of being bilingual or multilingual.

Alternative Programs

The majority of our scheduled language classes are designed for adult students who want to learn another language. We also offer the following alternative programs.

English · Accent Reduction

Classes evaluate the student's problem areas and focus on exercises designed to target and remedy those areas. Our Accent Reduction course focuses on pronunciation, stress, enunciation, diction, tonality, musicality, syntax, and articulation, through vowel and consonant exercises, work chants, tongue twisters, and readings. Individual attention is given to each student's area of difficulty.

English · Native Speaker

English - Native Speaker Classes

These classes are for those who grew up speaking English but want to improve and refine their English. Designed to give you the critical edge in English communication, they target grammar, spelling, and pronunciation.

Little Linguals

Little Linguals Classes

Designed for children aged 6 - 11, our "Little Lingual" classes meet once a week during the afternoon for one hour. Class content includes Alphabet, Songs, Games, Practical Words and Phrases, and Basic Dialogue. Children aged 12 and above can join our regularly scheduled adult classes.

These exciting classes are geared to get an early start on language learning while helping children enjoy and appreciate a different culture. This is the best time for them to learn a foreign language. The younger the learner, the better they are at mimicking new sounds and adopting pronunciation. The brain is open to new sounds and patterns in preadolescence.

Young children have the luxury of taking in a new language naturally. A child's brain is like a sponge, soaking up new vocabulary, sentence structure, words stress, pronunciation, and everything that makes up language quickly, easily—and, most importantly, without explicit grammatical instruction.

When you're an adult, learning a new language takes a bit more effort!

Little Linguals Classes

Young children have time to learn through play-like activities. Language lessons can be informal. Children's minds are not yet cluttered with facts to be stored and tested. Before children become self-conscious, they can try out their newly acquired languages without fear of embarrassment.

Children who grow up learning about languages develop empathy for others and a curiosity for different cultures and ideas. They're better prepared to take their place in a global society. In later years, career opportunities increase for those with additional languages to offer.

Studies by Harvard University confirm that learning additional languages increases critical thinking skills, creativity and flexibility of the mind in young children. Moreover, pupils who learn a foreign language outscore their non-foreign-language-learning peers in standardized verbal and math tests, indicating that learning additional language is a cognitive—and not just linguistic—activity. The brain, like any muscle, functions better with exercise. Learning a language involves memorizing rules and vocabulary, which helps strengthen that mental muscle.

Travel Classes

Travel Classes

Our Travel Classes are designed for those who are planning a trip and want to get more out of their travel experience. These classes are held twice a week for one month. They are language classes focused on travel conversation, pronunciation, and culture.
