#The Facts
According to unofficial data, there are currently around 3 to 4 million Serbs in the Diaspora throughout the world, with hundreds of thousands being the younger generation. This means that all instructions are delivered to them in the language of the country they live in, which raises a question of complete assimilation.

The use of one's original native language is a pre-requisite for maintaining national identity, the feeling of belonging and connection with the country of origin. Today, knowledge of foreign languages represents a foundation for linking people and cultures. On the other hand, the Serbian Diaspora has to be aware of the importance of implementing a notion of national identity and transferring its culture and language onto the younger generation.

The whole idea of Belgrade Summer School of the Serbian language (BSS) is precisely to help the Serbian Diaspora youth stay in touch and get acquainted with the culture, history and tradition of the city of Belgrade and the Republic of Serbia. This would help them get involved in the cultural, social and political life of their country of origin.

#Learn More About Your Homeland
The main goal of the Summer School of Serbian Language and Culture is to raise and improve awareness of the Serbian Diaspora youth regarding the life of the country of origin through its summer programme of learning Serbian, as well as carefully planned outdoor workshops, thematic evenings and excursions.

Our main goals at BSS are as follows:

  • Organising workshops with the aim of acquiring and improving the knowledge of the Serbian language
  • Presenting Serbian history, culture and customs
  • Spreading the knowledge of tourist potentials of Belgrade and Serbia
  • Actively engaging the Serbian Diaspora youth in the social, political and economic life of Serbia
  • Establishing and strengthening present cooperation with universities in the country, region and the world
  • Building connections with the Serbian Diaspora, through (the) socialising of young people from the country and abroad
  • Positioning Belgrade as an (unavoidable) educational and cultural centre in Southeastern Europe
  • Promoting tolerance and understanding among young people
  • Enhancing international communication
  • Fund raising to enable talented young people to participate in both scientific projects and art exchanges.
