Lesson 1: Pronunciation

To start off, you should learn how to pronounce Serbian words. Most words are pronounced exactly like they are written, but there are some exceptions.
Here are the basics:

The y sound in English is written with a j
ž  is the Serbian equivalent of zh
š  is the Serbian equivalent of sh
ć  is the Serbian equivalent of ch
u  is the Serbian equivalent of oo
e is pronounced eh
i  is pronounced ee

Usually there are no silent letters in Serbian. So, vreme is not pronounced "vreem"! 

Next: Greetings
