I always received professional help with regards to the Serbian language, with information from cultural and museum events and, most importantly, with a warm smile. Everyone was always there to work, and ready to help me. For the students it’s...

Az Buki Camp

We offer classes at all Serbian language levels: from beginner to advanced. On day one, students are given a placement test, and are then assigned to a group based on their Serbian language skill level.

A minimum of two and a maximum of six participants are assigned per group. Two professors guide students in the acquisition of the Serbian language and cultural studies; and one instructor provides support in the form of supplemental activities (sports, music, etc.).

Azbukum offers three classes of Serbian per day, Monday to Friday. Every day students concentrate on a specific topic. The topic is reinforced throughout the day in various ways (during the language classes or during supplemental activities). Evenings are reserved for music, films, karaoke parties and other recreational pursuits. Excursions and sightseeing tours take place on weekends.

All class materials used for Serbian language study are published by the Azbukum Centre. For those materials specifically geared toward children aged 10 - 12, check out: Az buki srpski 1 and Az buki srpski 2. Učimo srpski 1 and Učimo srpski 2 are more suited for young adults, 13 - 15. Bookshop

Az Buki Camp participants are placed with families that have children of the same or of similar age. Host families are carefully selected and live close to Azbukum (within walking distance). Guests may opt for a single room, or share a room with their hosts (double room with separate beds). Full board is provided (breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks). Guest families are encouraged to actively participate in the everyday activities of their host families. By doing so, they have a chance to exchange life experiences, explore the Serbian culture, and develop deep friendships. Of course, practicing Serbian is the best part of the host family experience.
