Planning is required so that participants all meet at the same time each week, and we recommend that numbers are kept to 6 or less. 1:1 Serbian lessons at Oxford  mean that you will have your individual needs, weaknesses and strengths catered for, so that your progress is quicker.

Serbian Course Locations & Schedules

SIMON & SIMON has arranged Serbian language courses for clients in numerous locations, and with our global network of language trainers we can organise a Serbian language course for you wherever you are – in almost any major city in the UK, Europe and beyond. The vast majority of our Serbian lessons take place at our clients’ offices, removing the need for you to travel, but Serbian lessons can take place in your home if that is more convenient. We can also arrange full-time residential Serbian language courses for you – just contact our office for information on available destinations.

Oxford Serbian Course Schedules

The Serbian language courses in Oxford  that we run go on through the year. Each week, most of our students will attend at least one of our 90-minute lessons, but many will do more. We can also arrange Weekend Courses for you. Serbian courses run from Monday to Friday, any time from 8am to 6pm. Intensive Serbian language courses can be arranged in residential centres abroad or in the UK, or on clients’ premises for 30 hours per week, 6 hours a day Monday to Friday.

Serbian Course Content

Before you start your Serbian language course we will assess your level of Serbian and speak to you about your aims so that your Serbian language course can be customised for you. You may have never been exposed to Serbian before and wish to develop basic survival skills, or you may have some experience and wish to be able to speak more fluently in Serbian when discussing business. You may want to further your ability to use Serbian in negotiations and meetings or better your comprehension and pronunciation abilities. Whatever goals you may have, our experienced Serbian language trainers will tailor your Serbian course so that your goals can be quickly met.

About Serbian

Serbian is a form of Serbo-Croatian spoken by Serbs in Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Croatia and neighbouring countries. There are two principal Serbian dialects, Shtokavian and Torlakian. The literary and standard language is based on Shtokavian, which is also the basis of Standard Croatian, Bosnian, and Montenegrin. Serbian is standardized around Sumadija-Vojvodina and Eastern Herzegovinian subdialects of Shtokavian. Apart from Shtokavian, the Torlak dialect, transitional to Macedonian and Bulgarian, is spoken in southeast Serbia.

About Oxford

Oxford is a city, and the county town of Oxfordshire, in South East England. The city, made prominent by its medieval university, has a population of just under 165,000, with 151,000 living within the district boundary. The rivers Cherwell and Thames run through Oxford and meet south of the city centre. For a distance of some 10 miles (16 km) along the river, in the vicinity of Oxford, the Thames is known as The Isis. Buildings in Oxford demonstrate an example of every British architectural period since the arrival of the Saxons, including the iconic, mid-18th century Radcliffe Camera. Oxford is known as the “city of dreaming spires”, a term coined by poet Matthew Arnold in reference to the harmonious architecture of Oxford’s university buildings. The University of Oxford is the oldest university in the English-speaking world. Oxford was first occupied in Saxon times, and was initially known as “Oxenaforda”, meaning “Ford of the Ox”; fords being more commonly used than bridges at that time. It began with the foundation of St Frideswide’s nunnery in the 8th century, and was first mentioned in written records in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle for the year 912. In the 10th century Oxford became an important military frontier town between the kingdoms of Mercia and Wessex and was on several occasions raided by Danes. St Frideswide is the patron saint of both the city and university.

Assess Your Serbian Level

The table below is based on recognised language levels used by various academic institutions across the European Union. A highly motivated student attending weekly sessions with their Serbian language trainer in Oxford  can expect to move from one level to another after 50 hours providing they also commit to a similar number of hours of self-study.

Of course, some people find learning languages easier than others, and some students will have more opportunities to practise Serbian in the course of their work and leisure, so these factors also need to be considered when trying to assess how long it will take to move from one level to another.
