Learning cyrillic can be a daunting task, especially if you have no experience with other alphabets. The challenges below should make getting accustomed to cyrillic much easier.

How the challenges work[edit | edit source]

Each challenge consists of a number of words written in Serbian Cyrillic. Convert the words to Cyrillic and write them down(in a notebook, a text file on a secondary screen, it doesn't really matter.) when you're done with your challenge, go to the key to see which words you got right. Then you move on to the next challenge(It is recommended you do space it out a bit )

How do I convert cyrillic to latin?[edit | edit source]

At first you likely don't know Cyrillic all that well, so it is recommended that you have some sort of table or chart that shows the letters of the cyrillic alphabet and their latin counterparts, and use that to convert the letters, as you progress you'll start to easily recognise some letters and the need for a chart fades, eventually you'll be able to do the challenges without the help of a chart.
