Serbian for Foreigners Course

The Faculty of Philology of the University of Banja Luka is organizing a course in Serbian language for foreign students starting from the academic year 2019/2020 who wish to study at some of the faculties of the University of Banja Luka. 

As foreign students are required to have a certain level of knowledge of the Serbian language in order to be able to participate in the teaching process (B2 – according to the Common European Framework of References), we have created a two-semester course, which will provide all students with an appropriate proficiency level.

The Serbian for Foreigners course is designed in such a way that within 40 working weeks it enables the students to attain the necessary proficiency level B2, if they are complete beginners and possess some prior knowledge. The course starts in September and ends at the end of June, when the students take the final exam based on which they are issued a course completion certificate.
Three-hour classes are held twice a week (six classes a week in total). The course is free of charge for all future students of the University of Banja Luka, and participants will be provided with the necessary literature.
