"ČITAM I PRIČAM"
The 11th Bosnian, Croatian, Serbian Language Winter School
22 January - 2 February 2024
After three years of online classes, we wished to return to the classroom. We miss making coffee for everyone (and tea for others), having face-to-face conversations, writing on the blackboard... We hope you'll want to hang out with us in person as well!
We are going to divide students into groups, by levels, from A1 to C1 (or C2, why not!). Groups will include no more than 8 persons so that everyone can get a chance to participate. On work-days, there will be two blocks of 90-minute classes with a 30-minute break in between. That’s a total of 30 hours - 15 hours for grammar practice and 15 for conversation! The books are adjusted to levels, and the texts correspond to the needs of everyday language comprehension. Every group will work with two teachers – responsible for different aspects of language acquisition and applying different teaching approaches.
As part of the Online BCS Winter School, we are organising an intensive conversational BCS course. The minimum level of language proficiency required for participation is B1. If you opt for the conversational course, we kindly ask you to state your preference in the comment section of the application form.
The learning materials are made for levels A1 to C1. When you fill out the application form
, you will receive a placement test to complete it before the beginning of the school. If on the first day you realise that the level you have been assigned to is either too easy or too hard, you will have the opportunity to change groups.
Classes will be held in the classroom in the following time slots:
Time slot 1: 9:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Time slot 2: 1:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Extracurricular activities: 6:00 - 7:30 p.m.
We all hang out after classes, watch films, and listen to lectures. The entire program will be available soon, and you are welcome to suggest a topic of interest to you or a person you would like to meet.
When filling out the application form, please state your preferred time slot.
Schedule will be made based on the number of groups. We also organize the C2 level for those who know their grammar but still struggle with writing, as well as those whose mother tongue is BCS, but who have never studied it in school.
