Why Serbian Language
& Culture Classes?
By offering a fun and positive experience, we aim to arouse children’s curiosity and interest in their heritage.
While working on Serbian language skills, our students gain awareness of contemporary Serbia and about its path through history.
Our classes make connections between the Australian and Serbian cultures, helping children consolidate their Australian identity with their Serbian heritage.
Our broader goal, beyond the classroom, is to encourage a lifelong learning of languages and culture.
Our classes are highly interactive, up-beat and fun. We only spend some class time at our desks.
Students are grouped by ability, not age. The number of classes depends on enrolments and this is reviewed each term.
Children build up a portfolio of work which they take home and return to class each week.
A language session may generally consist of:
