This book aims to be a complete guide to the Croatian language. From the basics, to the most advanced concepts of grammar and speech. It also aims to provide some miscellaneous information in relation to Croatia and the Croatian language (for example: history of the Croatian language, different dialects, how the Croatian language evolved, etcetera).
The Lessons and Reference/Lekcije i preporuke
The lessons are put into levels. Each level focuses on a certain part of Croatian, to help build up your knowledge of the language, also known simply as Croatian. For example, the first level is mostly vocabulary. After studying and learning all the levels and lessons, hopefully the reader will be able to speak Croatian fluently. The levels are mainly for people who want to learn Croatian seriously as another language. If you wish to learn some of the language quickly because of business, a holiday or just out of curiosity, the reference is here for a quick guide. If you are familiar with another Slavic language (cf. Russian, Polish, Czech,Serbian,Bulgarian etc...), then you are at an advantage as Croatian shares the same noun declinations and sentence structures as her sister languages.
Reference is not a guide, however nor is it similar to the lessons. It is large portions of this South Slavic language put into a small area so the reader can look up verbs quickly without having to go through the lessons to find it. However, if you want to learn some more vocabulary, please use Level 1, not Reference to look up the word you want. Level 1 is not rigidly structured, so it is easy to use, like a dictionary.
