"ČITAM I PRIČAM"
The 8th Bosnian, Croatian, Serbian Language Winter School
18 - 29 January 2021
This year’s intensive Bosnian, Croatian and Serbian language course online has moved to Zoom. The teaching methods will be adapted to online space, but our goal to read and speak and learn the BCS language through communication remains the same. 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. Discussion topics to be covered are the following:
1. Bank and money
2. Work/learning from home
3. Healthy food
4. Contemporary correspondence
5. Domestic film
7. Interesting facts about BiH
8. How to write a complaint
9. Body and health
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.
Based on the number of groups, a schedule will be made. 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.
