the acquisition of language skills, oral and written, for the purpose of
reading, listening, composition and conversation. The elements of modern
Serbian and Croatian grammar will be introduced to enhance proper and
correct usage. Near the end of the fall semester several abridged versions
of literary texts by authors from different parts of the former Yugoslavia
(Copic, Nusic, Andric, etc.) will be read in order to give the students an
idea of the language beyond the limits of the textbook.
