Series of short lessons in collaboration with HelloDarija
. How it works?
I provide you with conjugation of one verb, several words and phrases in a certain topic. One lesson = one topic. Next, you go to http://hellodarija.com
to practice your newly acquired vocabulary and learn how to use them in conversations. Everything for free. Good luck!
