Learning Croatian in Zagreb

Zagreb Weekend and On Request Courses

As Zagreb is a city of growing economic importance, the Croatian language is becoming increasingly important in commercial sectors. These intensive courses are targeted at those who require a fast track training approach, usually for business purposes, and since the courses take place in the centre of the city, students are exposed to the city’s dynamic and cultural influences throughout the training programme.

With the success of its short intensive business courses in Losinj, the Croatian Language School has launched its Zagreb Croatian weekend course for those professionals who need to maximise their learning of Croatian.

Daily Course Outline

The Zagreb Croatian weekend courses include 10 hours of intensive tuition and the courses on request are a minimum of 3 hours to a maximum of 5 hours of tuition per day. All courses are for individuals or two persons. Courses at the Croatian Language School are organised in accordance with CERF guidelines (Common European Reference Framework).

Schedule
09.00-12.00 Croatian Language Lessons
12.00-15.00 Lunch
15.00-17.00 Optional Cultural Activities in Zagreb
