When it comes to the Serbian culture, giving out kind messages and expressions of praise are very important. While most of the Serbs can speak English very well, it is still advantageous for you to use greetings that are in their native language. Not only will this surprise them, but it will also show that you genuinely respect their language and culture.
In the Serbian language, the word congratulations are directly translated as Честитам which is pronounced as Čestitam. Don't be confused if you see the same translation used in other languages like Croatian and standard Bosnian. One reason behind this is that these languages are part of the SCB or the Serbo-Croat-Bosnian language family which means that they share some linguistic similarities.
Below are some variations of the word congratulations in the Serbian language.
We understand that learning Serbian is not the easiest, especially for beginners to the Slavic languages. In fact, the FSI's language difficulty rankings show that you will need about 1100 hours of consistent lessons in order to gain proficiency in this language. There's no surprise to this since the writing script used in Serbian can easily throw off learners.
However, learning this is not entirely impossible. By simply focusing on the basic words and expressions, you can certainly get a leg up in the language. With this said, why not start your language learning journey by learning about the basic words and phrases used for congratulating someone? Are you ready for that? Let's get started!
