Courses, groups and teachers

Course content & groups

Course content is designed to be relevant to your holiday, so you'll learn how to order in a restaurant, ask for directions, or book a hotel. You can try out the phrases you learn in the morning around town in the afternoon!

Lessons are conducted primarily in Croatian, although our teachers are fluent in both English and German. This approach has proven to help students quickly get used to hearing and understanding basic Croatian.

We teach small groups with no more than 10 students to enable positive interaction and communication. Our teachers strive to keep the learning experience enjoyable and informal despite the intense nature of the course.

We aim to accommodate all language levels, with guaranteed courses for beginners (A1) and intermediate speakers (A2/B1). Where  possible we also group advanced speakers (B2/C1/C2), depending on demand.
