5.0 out of 5 stars At last a comprehensive guide..... 1 Jan 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
As a student of the Serbian language, I am always looking out for books to help with my studies. As many people with an interest in this area know, there are very few books on the subject, or they are based on Serbo-Croat and focus on the Croatian side of the language. This book purely focuses on Serbian and teaches the grammar and vocabulary in a very easy to manage way. I have just passed the half way mark and am now able to hold converstions with my Serbian friends, who are very impressed with the standard of my language. Very well written and very informative regarding culture and lifestyle an abosolute must.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very worthwhile book 15 Oct 2008
By Englez
This is a really excellent book for anyone starting to learn serbian. This book is ideal for anyone planning to work/travel to Serbia or Bosnia (Republika Serpska Entity) as it also teaches the language in Cyrillic as well as latin, which is essential as most road signs in the RS (save major routes) are in cyrillic (as I found out getting lost one time en route to Banja Luka). This is also suitable for Bosnian as the languages are practically identical (only some very minor differences on a small minority of words). It's also useful for Croatian (98% the same language), although using some Serb words will be corrected by the locals, but this never seemed to cause offence they were glad that I had made the effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Serbian course available 19 Mar 2004
Format:Audio CD
In this review I'll try to provide a brief overview of
a. The Serbian Language
b. Teach Yourself Serbian
a. The Serbian Language
15 years ago you wouldn't have found any course in Serbian, only in Serbo-Croat. For almost all of the 20th century the term Serbo-Croat covered the language(s) spoken by Croats, Bosniaks, Serbs and Montenegrins. Today there is no agreement on whether there are one, two, three or four different languages. Most people recognise the existence of Croatian and Serbian and tent to view Bosnian and Montenegrin as Serbian varieties.
I'm not from the region and I don't have any national feeling involved in this issue. Neither do I have any definite answer, but I can say this:
- Serbs, Croats, Bosniaks and Montenegrins can all understand each other. Just as Danes and Swedes or Czechs and Slovaks can understand each other.
- The difference between the forms is large enough to give away whether you're a Croat, a Serb, a Bosnian or a Montenegrin. The difference is definitely larger than between various English dialects.
The most obvious difference is between "ekavian" and "ijekavin", two different dialect named after their realisation of "e".
In Ekavian:
milk = mleko, river = reka, village = selo
In Ijekavian:
milk = mlijeko, river = rijeka, village = selo
In other words, not all "e"s are "ije" in Ijekavian but you get the picture.
Now, all Croats, all Bosniaks and all Montenegrins use Ijekavian. So do many Serbs. The majority of the Serbs use Ekavian, though.
In other words, all Ekavian-speakers are Serbs but not all Serbs are Ekavian-speakers and all Croats are Ijekavian-speakers but not all Ijekavian-speakers are Croats.
Another difference is the vocabulary.
