Serbian lessons, part 5

Dear friends,

I hope you have learned something in my previous lessons. I didn’t have an idea it would be this difficult to make those lessons. I mean, Serbian grammar is hard, especially when I try to explain rules in English. But I hope I am good teacher. At least, I do my best to explain things as good as I can :)

Until now, we have learned our two alphabets, greetings, how to say something about you, how to make a plural of nouns and how to know which gender is. Last time we had the hardest lessons of all – the present tense. Today we will learn more words to build our vocabulary.

I have found some really cool facts about my country and I wanted to share them with you. I hope you will enjoy reading them :)

Ten fun facts about Serbia

Fact 1 - Most Serbian last names end with the letters “-ić”.

Fact 2 - The country has been topping the global raspberry export list for several years now. Even in 2012, almost 95% of the world’s raspberries came from Serbia.

Fact 3 - In 274 AD, Constantine the Great, the Roman Emperor was born in the Serbian city of Nis.

Fact 4 - Between the 3rd and 4th centuries, a total of eighteen emperors were born on what is modern day Serbia. That number accounts for a fifth of all Roman rulers.

Fact 5 - The only Serbian world that is accepted and used across the world is “vampire”.

Fact 6 - The Serbian clock-making industry is even older than the world-famous Swiss one. The Serbs had their own clock 600 years before the Swiss did.

Fact 7 - The Old Downtown Church that stands in the downtown section of Cacak is home to a religious building that has been turned into a mosque a record ten times.

Fact 8 - The very first video transmission between North America and Europe that took place in 1963 featured the White Angel from the Serbian fresco at Monastery Milesevo.

Fact 9 - Excluding the great powers, Serbia and Belgium were the only countries that went onto forming the European Union.

Fact 10 - Europe’s largest gorge, the Djerdap Gorge is situated in Serbia. The mighty Danube river flows through it.

Ђердапска клисура / Đerdapska klisura / The Djerdap Gorge

I hope you have enjoyed in my new lesson.
