Lecturers

Lecturers at the Azbukum Centre are experienced experts from different fields who have many years of experience in working with foreigners. All professors speak a minimum of one foreign language in addition to Serbian. They are always at the service of their students.

Some professors of the Serbian language at Azbukum are also the authors of thecoursebooks and additional materials which are used in classes. Some of the professors of the Serbian language are the authors of online programs for learning Serbian over the Internet.

The majority of Azbukum professors are regularly employed at the University of Novi Sad or Belgrade, at the Matica Srpska, the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Art or some other eminent institution in Serbia.

Considering that Azbukum takes great care in creating the courses, there is also constant evaluation of the professors. All professors in the Azbukum Centre, before they begin working in the classes, must attend a special training program for teaching Serbian as a foreign language.

During the course, students are invited to give their opinion about their professors and grade their work through a teacher's evaluation test.
