Past Tense in Serbian Language with Exercises


The tenses in Serbian language might be simple or complex. Past tense belongs to the group of complex tenses, because it is made of two verbs (an auxiliary verb and an ordinary verb).  

When you want to make past tense in Serbian language, you will use:

1) auxilliary verb ’jesam’ (shorter form)
2) stem – the first part of the verb (without ending  ’ti’) – gleda(ti), peva(ti), žele(ti) ...
And then you add endings – o, la, lo, li, le, la    (depending of a gender of a word)


Ja sam želeo, želela, želelo
Ti si želeo, želela, želelo
On je želeo, ona je želela, ono je želelo

Mi smo želeli, želele, želela
Vi ste želeli, želele, želela
Oni su želeli, one su želele, ona su želela

Ja sam pevao, pevala, pevalo
Ti si pevao, pevala, pevalo
On je pevao, ona je pevala, ono je pevalo

Mi smo pevali, pevale, pevala
Vi ste pevali, pevale, pevala
Oni su pevali, one su pevale, ona su pevala


1. Make the past tense from following verbs (napravi prošlo vreme od sledećih glagola): 
Tražiti VratitiČekati Igrati Praviti 

2. Podvuci glagole u prošlom vremenu – Underline verbs in past tense:
 Ja sam spavala do podne.Oni su ostali sa nama.Čekali smo voz.Marko je mislio na Anu.Ti si pričao o vestima.Dečaci su trčali na stadionu.Devojčica je želela lutku.Prijatelji su pili vino.Učitelj je glasno čitao knjigu.Sestre su govorile holandski jezik.Ja sam telefonirala dečku.Uveče u dnevnoj sobi otac je gledao TV.Šetali smo u centru Amsterdama.Vreme je bilo lepo. 

3. Put the sentences into past time, like in example
Oni dolaze u podne. – Oni su dolazili u podne.

Mi razgovaramo o knjizi.
Ana misli na svoju sestru.
Kiša pada.
Marko i Ana sanjaju isti san.
Za doručak imate musli i jogurt.
Telefon zvoni.
Marko spava.
Sunce sija.
Ana vozi dobar auto.
Moj deda dobro kuva.
Da li želiš čašu mleka?
Maja lepo peva.

How it works?


First we have introductory (free) conversation. In it you tell me what is your purpose and goal in learning Serbian, how far do you want to go, and do you have some previous knowledge or not at all. 

Then we agree on weekly term for the lesson and the way of payment which suits you best. 

Before every lesson, I send to your email texts, pictures, links, grammar lessons, exercises etc. 

Then - we have normal lessons of  Serbian language. Our classroom is virtual and we have headphones, but we communicate and learn Serbian exactly the same as we were sitting in a same room, in our comfortable chairs, at the desk. 

Then - you are enjoying in learning Serbian and becoming more confident in communication. Everybody tells you: 'You have really advanced lately!'

If you have questions about this topic or you want to schedule introductory conversation, you may write me to .
