Croatia Online - Learning The Language & The Cuisine

Regular readers will know that we've mentioned the Croatian Language School (CLS) a number of times before. This is where our editor first got to grips with the challenges of learning Croatian. Not only does the school in Ealing, West London, cater for every level of proficiency and ambition in the Croatian language, it has also held regular immersion courses in Istria, Croatia, for those that want a head start in the language, and also to enjoy the local culture. Now CLS has a new range of summer courses, taking place on the lovely Istrian island of Lošinj.
CLS's summer courses were always designed to provide the opportunity to balance rapid learning with time off to consolidate knowledge and explore the delights of Istria. The new courses have a little extra "je ne sais quoi" (and if you take one you'll probably find how to say this in Croatian!) Uniquely, the new courses in Lošinj also offer insight into Croatia's culinary skills and traditions by including the skills of top Croatian chef Mladen Marušic.
You'll learn Croatian either in the morning or afternoon, want to explore the sights and sounds of Istria for the other part of the day, and, in between, you can learn about the best of Croatian cooking and culinary traditions. Whatever your linguistic or culinary level, aspirations or needs, you can be sure to find the right blend of learning with CLS and, just as important, have a great time in Croatia as well.
Go to to find out more and thanks to CLS for today's photo.

Pozdrav. Ja sam profesorica hrvatskog iz Zagreba i dolazim u London za mjesec dana. Osim što ću ići u školu, probati ću i naći neki posao vezan uz predavanje hrvatskog jezika. Da li me možete, molim vas savjetovati, kako bi u Londonu mogla dobiti takav posao i gdje? Da li možda imate neku hrvatsku zajednicu u Londonu koja bi mi pomogla da se snađem, kad dođem tamo? Hvala.
(Hello. I am professor of croatian language from Zagreb and I am coming in London in a month. Except I will study, will try to find some job as a croatian teacher. Could you please, advise me, how and where in London I could get this kind of job? Do you have some croatian comunnity that can help me to orientate myself in there. I hope you will answer to my questions? Thank you.)

There is quite a strong Croatian community in London. There's a British Croatian Society and also a Croatian language school. If you post another comment with your email address, I won't publish it on the site but I can email you full contact details so that you can get a head start.
