I’m a beginner at studying Serbian, and charts help me with all the crazy complicated grammar. I’ve found that existing charts have generally not been comprehensive enough for my needs or not organized simply, so they’re hard to follow during class or conversation. So I’ve been creating my own.
I previously posted a chart of Serbian cases and got great feedback that it’s the best such chart that many learners and native speakers have seen. I’ve just created a new chart for Serbian verbs that includes present, past, and future tense rules. Click the image to view the full PDF.
You can download this as an A4-size PDF (it looks beautiful in print), or download my PPTX source file if you want to edit it for your own needs:

Tip: Use en.wiktionary.org to look up conjugations for any Serbian verb. First search for the verb in its infinitive form, then click the “show ▼” link in the Conjugation section to reveal a detailed table.
How can I improve this in future versions? Did I make any mistakes? Is there anything I’m missing that’s important to include? I’d love to hear from you in the comments.
