The goal of the BCS Intermediate I course in the fall semester, and its successive course in the winter semester, is to improve students’ reading skills, as well as to enhance their vocabulary and grammatical competences. On Tuesdays, we will read excerpts from prose works in Bosnian Croatian and Serbian--both literary and specialized—focusing on different reading tactics, vocabulary enrichment, and cultural contextualization. Wednesdays will be devoted to grammatical explanations and exercise, problem-solving tasks and drills.
