Learning Serbian: Are You Working on Your Areas of Growth?

Are you learning Serbian? If so, then this article is for you.

We all know what it is like to be confronted with a challenge that requires more energy to solve or learn than we desire to give. Far too often we retreat from such circumstances under the false belief that all departures from challenge (which can produce stress) are a good thing. What we should keep in mind is the fact that growth comes from tension. That’s right, there is no growth without tension and the same is true for learning Serbian.

Growth opportunities

This means we must change our perspective and reaction to tension, challenge, and stress. Every time we avoid these elements we are avoiding growth opportunities. That doesn’t mean we should seek out activities or opportunities that might do us harm, but it does mean we should be careful what we label as stressful. Take learning Serbian for example. Do you view learning Serbian as being stressful? If you do you will be less inclined to study it because you have labeled it as something negative. The key is to understand that you are involved in a process that exists across a spectrum of an unknown amount of time. Furthermore, the process requires the acquisition of new knowledge and learning and this means you have to work on your areas of growth in order to progress.

How to improve your Serbian language learning skills?

So what exactly do I mean? Well, let’s say for example that you have a solid understanding of how to identify and categorize nouns and adjectives across the 3 Serbian genders (i.e. masculine, feminine, neuter). It would be easy to just continue to reinforce what you already know and do study exercises related to the 3 Serbian genders. But the question is, would that move your Serbian language skills forward? Not really. Reviewing acquired knowledge certainly has its place, but it can’t replace the importance of moving on to new content. This is what I mean when I ask “Are you working on your areas of growth?”.

Explore your comfort zone

Exploring language is all about exploring your own comfort (or discomfort) with uncertainty. If you can cause yourself to view uncertainty and your “not knowing something” as a positive force, then there is nothing you can’t do. But getting to that level of awareness and fluidity of practice requires practice. This means that the best thing you can do today is something you don’t know.
