Lesson 1, Part B: the Latin Alphabet

In this video we learn the latin form of the alphabet, called abeceda in Serbian. Please note, the order of the Cyrillic alphabet is different for the order of the Latin alphabet.  This alphabet order sheet shows both orders, as well as the cursive Cyrillic form.

Once you get the alphabet down, reading is quite simple. The Serbian language is phonetic, meaning it reads the way it is spelt. So, master the alphabet and start reading. To help build your vocabulary here is a list of 20+ words to get you started.
