Learn Croatian

Even if you have little time or no inclination to go deeply into learning Croatian, I recommend learning a few simple phrases. In fact, I think it's only polite to at least learn how to meet, greet and thank in Croatian.

There's a lot of shooshing and tch-tching in Croatian. Here are some consonants you will encounter as you make your way through Croatian.

Đ j as in 'jeans'
dj as in 'adjust'
J y as in 'yes'
LJ ly as in 'billion'
