The Serbian language

Serbian is part of the language family of Slavic languages.

More than 300 million people worldwide speak a Slavic language as their mother tongue.
Often speakers of different Slavic languages can (more or less) understand each other.

For example:
Up to the breakup of former Yugoslavia, Serbian was one part of the “Serbo-Croatian language”.
Until now speakers of Croatian, Bosnian and Serbian can easily communicate with each other in their native languages – and understand each other without greater problems.
Of course, from time to time one of them would need to clarify some specific vocabulary.
But, if you start out learning Serbian, you will have no difficulties in diving into Croatian or Bosnian afterwards.

Let's start our journey with learning our first words – in six different Slavic languages!

Comparison of some Slavic languages
English Czech Polish Bulgarian Russian Croatian Serbian
sister sestra siostra sestrą sestrą sestra sestra
day den dzień den den` dan dan
mother matka matka majka mat` majka majka
fish ryba ryba riba ryba riba riba

Did you realize how similar the words are?
Well, of course, we picked words that are pretty similar in the six languages ...

And please, be aware that Russian and Serbian are written in Cyrillic – but we provided the entries in the Latin script for better comparison.
Therefore the next chapter will teach you the Serbian Cyrillic alphabet.
