Serbian Present Tense: 3rd Person Plural

Serbian present tense is not very difficult for understanding and remembering. The only part that might make certain difficulty to the Serbian learners is the form for 3rd person plural.

Let’s repeat the endings: Singular: -M, -Š, -O, Plural: -MO, -TE, -U/-E/-JU.

These endings are always the same for every verb of Serbian language in present tense whose basic form (infinitive) end with –TI. The only form with variations is 3rd person plural –U/-E/-JU.

But there is a rule that might help us to choose the right ending with a verb we want to conjugate or to use in a sentence.

In 3rd person of Serbian present tense, endings might be –U, -E or –JU. That depends on a 1st  of the verb we want to conjugate. 

If the verb in its 1st person form ends with –im, form in a 3rd person will end with          –EVerbs: voleti (1st person – volim, 3rd person – vole), videti (1st person – vidim, 3rd person – vide), misliti (1st - person mislim, 3rd person – misle), tražiti (1st person – tražim, 3rd person – traže) etc.

If the verb in its 1st person form ends with –em, form in a 3rd person will end with         –UVerbs: kazati (1st person – kažem, 3rd person – kažu), piti (1st person – pijem, 3rd person – piju), pasti (1st person – padnem, 3rd person – padnu), jesti (1st person – jedem, 3rd person – jedu), etc. These verbs are most often irregular.

The majority of the verbs end with –JU in a 3rd person plural of present tense. These verbs are mostly regular and end with –am in a 1st person of present tense.

Do you already have experience with online learning? It's getting more and more popular for many reasons. If you want to learn Serbian online, you will get plenty of FREE material and you will have lots of help by Serbian teacher online. 

Teaching method

Before every lesson your Serbian teacher, and that would be me, sends the learning material to your email.
When the lesson starts, we work on the material together, via Skype. You also get homework every time.
We read, discuss grammar, you are doing written and oral exercises, we practice pronunciation, expand vocabulary, etc.

It's very similar to alive lesson. Maybe it's even more direct and more efficient to learn Serbian this way, because we are active the whole time, without distractions

In lessons I use Serbian and English language (and a little bit of Dutch if it's needed).
