    Hvala ti puno.

    dobar - day
    sto - 100 (is there a difference between sto and što?)
    tko - which/who
    ta - this
    dobar - good
    dan - day
    what? - croatian-što?, serbian-šta?
    što also means why?
    zašto? - why?
    zato što... - because...
    Tko is croatian version of who, serbs say Ko (without t)

    For men

    Ja sam peva-o - becomes Ja sam pevao or pevo
    Ti si peva-o - becomes Ja sam pevao or pevo

    For women

    Ja sam peva-la - becomes Ja sam pevala or pevla

    i have a very big doubt... i seldom listen someone talking in present continuous... how is it formed??

    for example, how do you say:
    i'm listening
    i'm working

    the exact question is how can you tell if someone does something regularly or it's doing it just now????

    thank you a lot!!!
    include croatian variants please!

    Film - movie
    Pismo just letter
    ISTO means THE SAME (It's the same child - To je isto dete)
    Maybe it can be translated sometimes in also/too...
    but TAKODJE means ALSO/TOO
    Volim, not vIlim (I love you - Volim te)
    This - ovo
    Volim ovo vino - I love/like this wine

    Hvala ti puno
    No!

    Ja sam pevao, Ti si pevao...

    Ja sam pevala, Ti si pevala...

    Only for men - pevo is sometimes used but that's not grammatical, when you write that you must put ' - pev'o and you don't need to use that...

    For example

    Voleti-love,like

    You just cut TI and put O for singular, LI for plural
    Ja sam vole-o (I loved)
    Ti si vole-o...
    Mi smo vole-li

    For women LA for singular, LE for plural

    Ja sam vole-la (I loved)
    Ti si vole-la
    Mi smo vole-le

    We only have one present

    I'm listening - Ja slušam
    I'm working - Ja radim

    You know that from context...

    Every summer I go to Greece - Svako leto idem u Grčku
    This summer I'm going to Greece - Ovo leto idem u Grčku

    Every summer, this summer - you know from that does he doing it just now or it's something regulary. It easier belive me
    And it's the same in serbian and croatian...

    great! less things to learn It will be difficult to get used to that though. Both in spanish and english which are the languages i speak fluently the present continuous exists and is formed the same way (with the verb 'to be').

    thanks a lot!

    Nije ovdje a li tamo je - It is not here it is over there.
    Razumijem - I understand

    Razumijete Hrvatski ne tako dobro - You understand Croatian not very well
    That means literaly, but it's not good
    You can say Razumijete Hrvatski ali ne tako dobro - You understand Croatian but not very well
    or Ne razumijete Hrvatski tako dobro - You don't understand Croatian very well

    Razumijete i govorite Hrvatski ali ne tako dobro - You understand and speak Croatian but not very well
    or Ne razumijete i ne govorite Hrvatski tako dobro - You don't understand and don't speak Croatian very well.

    Gdje JE Kanada ulica (Better - gdje je ulica Kanada?) - Where is Canada Street?
    Gdje je banka? - Where is the bank?
    Nije ovdje ali tamo je (or just Nije ovdje, tamo je) - It is not here it is over there

    Ali - but
