Teach yourself Croatian - one possible answer
Dear all (especially Michael Spudic),
for any interested in learning Croatian without attending a course I would
like to suggest to ask the "Hrvatska Matica Iseljenika", an organization which takes care for Croats all over the world (have a look at: www.matis.hr ), for further advice in this context.
I myself have bought two books with which I tought myself some more Croatian
grammar and use of language. They are called: "Dobro Dosli", which means "Welcome". Written in
Croatian, English, German, French and Spanish they offer not only one person the possibility to improve
her/his Croatian but equally gives other admirers of Croatia and its culture a good tool to learn the language.
In addition, I definitely can recommend the dictionaries offered by "Skolska Knjiga Zagreb", available for German, English, Spanish, French, Italian and a lot of other native speakers. The most useful book thou might be: "Razlikovni rjecnik" (a monolingual dictionary which
differentiates Croatian words by their semantic roots).
I am sorry for not being able if and where you might buy the literature I
have listed above, but I am sure
the "Hrvatska Matica Iseljenika" will be pleased to help you where as well
as whenever necessary.
Hoping I was of use to you I remain with kindest regards to all of you,
especially to Nenad
