Learning Croatian is not easy for foreigners.
Learning the local language in Dalmatia is even harder.
Or is it?
Having lived here for ten years, I am now in two minds.
Learning all the endings, verbs of motion, pronouncing words with NO vowels whatsoever. Impossible. This is the classic view.
And then I met Frankie a few years ago, who showed me that speaking local dialect is really quite easy. Invest a minute of your time to learn the basic greetings which you will never forget (nor will the 10,000 people who have viewed the video).
Many thanks to Faros News for posting the very useful language summary in the lead photograph. So true, and so possible to cover so many essential words in just a few grunts.
Dalmatian dialects – a truly unique approach to language.
