The Republic of Serbia is located on the Balkan Peninsula at the crossroads between Central, Southern, and Eastern Europe. It emerged after the dissolution, and subsequent wars, of Yugoslavia in the 1990's. The majority of its ten million inhabitants are Serbs and the official language is Serbian, written in both the Cyrillic and Latin alphabets.

Serbia has a thriving tourist industry, driven by its scenic landscape, historic monuments, curative spas, fishing areas, and hunting grounds. Since 2001 Serbia has also attracted more business from around the world, with the U.S. as the largest source of direct foreign investment.

Ideal for tourists, business travelers, and students, Beginner’s Serbian includes:

  • A brief introduction to Serbian history and culture
  • Fifteen practical lessons with dialogues, vocabulary, and expressions
  • Instructions in the Cyrillic alphabet
  • Exercises with answer key
  • Serbian-English and English-Serbian glossaries
  • Two audio CDs of dialogues and vocabulary spoken by native Serbian speakers
