    Sure, no problem You are right, it's not fair if we speak in Serbian only, there are other members who maybe don't understand.
    So, Vlada, let's respect the ones who don't speak Sebian. (it may include me as well )
    Vlada already started with some basics. He'll go on as soon as he finds the workbook from primary school. lol Just kidding ;D
    I'd like to practise my Serbian too, so it would be nice if we had a separate thread for Serbian speaking only...

    You can chit-chat in Serbian in this topic https://www.allthelyrics.com/forum/sl...ussions-4.html (like its name says )
    It's off topic so everything is acceptable there.. I suppose there's no need for another Serbian off topic

    Όλα τα κρίνουν, όλα τους φταίνε.
    Ας τους, λοιπόν , να λένε

    Kako si? = How are you? / When you're talking to a friend, or just to only one person/

    Kako sTE? = How are you? / When you're talking to a person that you're not familiar with, so you use it like a polite form (stranger). Also it might be used when you're talking to a group of people.

    In the English How are you can be used for all that occasions, without changing the meaning, as you know, but in slavic languages there are different ones for each form.

    I hope u get it.

    In Macedonian as well. Actually, I have always thought that the majority of the languages have a separate, polite form, and that English is one of the few exceptions. But, of course, I cannot be sure.

    Honestly, I'm more into beliving that English is in the exeptions. Whoch is fine cause that makes it easier. Two other languages that come in mind are French and German. /Polite forms: Vous ; Sie/.

    Beautiful!!! I'd like to join yous on this topic. I just bought a Serbian self study book. I have to say it is quite easy, but I'm getting mixed up with the suffixes and prepositions for I speak Slovak (+Czech & Polish), too.

    I also find it a bit strange that you don't use the infinitive form of the werbs, for ex. instead of "hocu govoriti" you say "hocu da govorim" (I want to speak).
    For me it's a phenomenon, but kinda cute.

    Well.. we do use infinitive but not that much I suppose

    e.g.
    Razumeti znači oprostiti (to understand means to forgive)
    Možete ući / Možete da uđete (both of which mean = You can come in)


    Gosh this reminded me how much I hated grammar at school!
    I'm outta here!
