The language course, Croatian Through conversation (third, revised and enlarged edition), is designed for ali those in English-speaking countries, who want to acquire a basic knowledge of contemporary spoken Croatian. Aphrase-book has been appended to help the tourist.
Croatian is the dominant spoken and literary language in western Jugoslavia, including the world-famous Dal-matian coast and Croatian Littoral. Dalmatia, expecially Dubrovnik, Split' and Hvar, was the cradle of Croatian literature, which has had a great and old tradition of five centuries.
Croatian is not only the Language of the Croats in Croatia; such language (ijekavian), with some differences, is also spoken in Bosnia and Herzegovina (Bosna i Hercegovina), Montenegro (Crna Gora) and western Serbia (zapadna Srbija).
It is hoped therefore that this book will be useful both to potentially serious students of Croatian culture and language and to curious and intelligent tourists. The lessons consist of situations in which the learner or tourist may very well find himself.
The book is published by Matica iseljenika Hrvatske (The Emigrant Center of Croatia), which is interested in giving people of our descent some information about the language and country of their ancestors.
