Foreign Service Institute Serbo-Croatian  - Image Volume 2 (of 2) for the FSI Serbo-Croatian Basic course made for students who want to learn how to converse in Serbo-Croatian. The Question and Answer Drill with Prompt is a type which may be used to drill Basic Sentences and which may lead to freer discussion. In this exercise the first sentence is the data sentence, which gives the information on which the student is to base his answer.

While the early examples are very simple, it is clear that once the student has gone through a number of units, the data sentence - and the answer - may be quite complex. It is not felt necessary to spell out drills of this sort but the relative complexity of the answer expected should be controlled. The question may imply 1) a yes or no answer, 2) information based on the data sentence, 3) a conclusion drawn on the basis of the data given, 4) an opinion expressed on the basis of the data given. Recently an approach to language learning has been suggested (by Earl W. Stevick), which would encourage the introduction of new vocabulary as the need arose for the latter in the student's efforts to express himself.

The present course has very deliberately controlled the vocabulary, restricting new words to the Basic Sentences until the later lessons. There is no question but what the introduction of words relevant to the student makes drill and freer conversation much more interesting. However, no matter what supplementary vocabulary lists might be given, they would never satisfy all students. The person primarily concerned with mastering the structure may proceed through the course just as it is. Where much greater involvement of the student would result, new vocabulary may be introduced. The goal of the course remains mastery of the structure, with a limited but active vocabulary.

Serbo-Croatian, or Serbo-Croat, less commonly Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian (BCS), is a South Slavic language and the primary language of Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro. It is a pluricentric language with four mutually intelligible standard varieties. The language was standardized in the mid-19th century, decades before a Yugoslav state was established. There were dual Serbian and Croatian standards from the very beginning. Croats and Serbs differ in religion and were historically part of separate empires. They adopted slightly different literary forms as their respective standards, though based on the same Eastern Herzegovinian subdialect of the Shtokavian dialect. Since independence, Bosnian has likewise been established as an official standard in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and there is an ongoing movement to codify a separate Montenegrin standard. Serbo-Croatian thus generally goes by the ethnic names Serbian, Croatian, Bosnian, and sometimes Montenegrin. In the 20th century, Serbo-Croatian served as the official language of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia (when it was called "Yugoslavian"), and later as one of the official languages of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. The dissolution of Yugoslavia affected language attitudes, so that social conceptions of the language separated on ethnic and political lines.

Serbo-Croatian is spoken in: Serbia, Croatia

Serbo-Croatian is also called: Hrvatski
