Description

Includes 30 lessons and reading instruction (16 hours) as MP3 download, plus PDF user's guide and reading booklet

Croatian, the official language of Croatia, is spoken by approximately 4.5 million speakers in Croatia, plus 1 million speakers in other parts of Europe, the US, and Canada. There are 3 main dialects: kajkavski, cakavski, and štokavski (official dialect). Pimsleur's Croatian teaches štokavski.

The Pimsleur¨ Method: the easiest, fastest way to learn a new language. Completely portable, easily downloadable, and lots of fun. You'll be speaking and understanding in no time flat! Croatian Phase 1, Lessons 1-30 includes 15 hours of spoken language practice and one hour of reading instruction in thirty, 30-minute lessons.

  • In the first 10 lessons, you'll cover the basics: saying hello, asking for or giving information, scheduling a meal or a meeting, asking for or giving basic directions, and much more. You'll be able to handle minimum courtesy requirements, understand much of what you hear, and be understood at a beginning level, but with near-native pronunciation skills.
  • In the next 10 lessons, you'll build on what you've learned. Expand your menu, increase your scheduling abilities from general to specific, start to deal with currency and exchanging money, refine your conversations and add over a hundred new vocabulary items. You'll understand more of what you hear, and be able to participate with speech that is smoother and more confident.
  • In the final 10 lessons of Phase 1, you'll be speaking and understanding at an intermediate level. In this phase, more directions are given in the target language, which moves your learning to a whole new plane. Lessons include shopping, visiting friends, going to a restaurant, plans for the evening, car trips, and talking about family. You'll be able to speak comfortably about things that happened in the past and make plans for the future.


Reading Lessons begin in Unit 11, and are included at the end of Unit 30, to provide you with an introduction to reading the Croatian alphabet. These lessons, which total about one hour, are designed to teach you to sound out words with correct pronunciation and accent. A Reading Booklet to be used with the audio lessons is also included in PDF format.

Comments about Croatian Phase 1, Units 1-30:

I had been learning Bosnian/Croatian for a few months prior to Pimsleur and was having a hard time catching on. This really did the trick! I spent a whole month in Croatia and BiH which also helped immensely in speaking the language. I have to say, Pimsleur helped get me on my feet to start speaking comfortably. I wish so much they would add more phases to Croatian since I have finished the first!

    Comments about Croatian, Comprehensive:

    These disks are used to teach hard of hearing the Croatian language. This is a language of importance to these hard of hearing non-native sopeakers. It is slow going, but it is working. The repetitions are particularly helpful. In many ways it is like teaching infants and toddlers. I don't know if you ever thought your product could be used this way.

    Comments about Croatian Phase 1, Units 1-30:

    This is not my first Pimsleur course i took. Like the first one (spanish) I loved it.
    Every day you learn a bit more and can retain it that way. You also learn the correct grammar in slower paced bits which makes retaining it easier. For me it is the best course out there. I purchased croatian 1-30. And after 3 month I can say that I fully understand the entire session without a problem. However I was very much looking forward to purchasing the next chapter and very exited about it only to find out I can't do to low demand. This was very disappointing to me and I have to say that when I purchased the first 1-30 lessons it is not made clear that they are the only ones available. Great Product but i do feel cheated.
