Serbian language

Serbian – Serbia


Serbian is the standardized variety of the Serbo-Croatian language mainly used by Serbs. It is the official and national language of Serbia, one of the three official languages of Bosnia and Herzegovina and co-official in Montenegro, where it is spoken by the relative majority of the population. It is a recognized minority language in Croatia, North Macedonia, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic.

Standard Serbian is based on the most widespread dialect of Serbo-Croatian, Shtokavian (more specifically on the dialects of Šumadija-Vojvodina and Eastern Herzegovina), which is also the basis of standard Croatian, Bosnian, and Montenegrin varieties and therefore the Declaration on the Common Language of Croats, Bosniaks, Serbs and Montenegrins was issued in 2017. The other dialect spoken by Serbs is Torlakian in southeastern Serbia, which is transitional to Macedonian and Bulgarian.

“Hello! My name is Nataša, a Serb from the Republic of Srpska (Bosnia and Herzegovina). I am a professor of French language and literature who is in love with literature and music! I write stories and poems in Serbian and French. I also participate in some charity work asfor for there are several causes that are really important to me, such as: protection of children, animals, environment and the actions against poverty. This is one of the reasons why I wanted to participate in this project. This project promotes the protection of the environment throughout a kind of art. In my opinion, the art should defend different causes, change us and change the world around us!

Furthermore, I have written several articles for various literary magazines. Alongside my partner, I edit a page dedicated to promotion of balkanic countries, their culture and the good news.

At the present time, I am in Serbia, at the city of Niš. There, I’m doing my master’s degree internship in teaching Serbian to foreign students. I am really proud and glad that I can contribute to the valorisation and the promotion of my mother’s tongue, Serbian literature and culture.

Throughout my studies, I have and I still benefit from some scholarships which allowed me to complete my studies.”
