  1. 6/8 – not bad for someone without a word of Serbian – although I did learn a few Russian words a long time ago and there might be a few similarities.

    You would enjoy the story I heard some years ago about the British politician who phoned the appropriate desk of the British Foreign Office because he was about to meet a delegation from what was then Yugoslavia. He asked: “How do you say ‘Good Evening’ in Yugoslavian?” “Oh”, said the man on the desk, “You mean Serbo-Croat”. “Thank you”, said the politician and put the phone down. He spent the evening walking up to everyone he met and saying “Serbo-Croat” to them!
