Bosnian, Croatian, Serbian Language Course

Association for Language and Culture 'Linguists' isn’t just a language school. We are a collective of people who uphold the same values in their life and work: we believe in the power of friendship and solidarity, in the healing power of laughter and understanding, but most of all - in compassion. Compassion is one of the two cornerstones of our teaching philosophy and vision. Whenever we step into a classroom we are fully aware that we are encountering not clients, but human beings, with rich and complicated lives, with their own desires and fears, human beings who feel vulnerable and insecure when trying to acquire a foreign language. The learning process starts by recognising the humanity in each of our students.

Learning a foreign language is no easy task and it doesn’t happen overnight. It requires time and effort. Precisely for that reason, the second cornerstone of our teaching philosophy and vision is: passion. We passionately love what we do and we’re not causal about it. We never go into a classroom distracted, moody or tired. You have the right to feel despondent, we don’t. You have the right to feel frustrated, we don’t. Our job is to provide boundless patience and support. 

Each level lasts for three months (12 weeks), with 48 classes altogether (4 classes a week).

  • Course start date: 4 March 2024
  • Courses are held twice a week (in 1.5-hour sessions) on the Zoom platform or in the classroom.

As part of this cycle of BCS courses, we are organising a BCS conversational 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. 

Teaching materials

You will receive the textbook and the workbook designed for your level at the beginning of the course. These materials are a result of many years of experience in teaching Bosnian as a foreign language and are also based on existing BCS textbooks.

In addition to this, we use audio and video materials and online resources. 


Price and payment

The price for the course is BAM 390 / EUR 199 (VAT included)


Applying for the course

After filling out the form you will receive an e-mail with all the necessary details (the schedule and the time of the classes). If you are not attending the beginner's course, you will need to do a placement test (free of charge) so we can assign you to the appropriate group.

In addition to online applications, you can also enroll by filling out an entry form at the premises of the Association.
