Get the world’s best learner’s chart for present and past tense Serbo-Croatian verbs, with conjugations, rules/exceptions, and examples. Designed for both comprehensiveness and ease of use.
See also: Serbian cases.
I’m a beginner at studying Serbian, and charts help me with all the crazy complicated grammar. But I’ve found that existing charts are generally not 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 all the present and past tense rules. Click the image to view the full PDF.
You can download this with either a Letter (USA) or A4 (international) page size for ease of printing without distortion, or download my PPTX source file if you want to edit it for your own needs:
For now, this covers only present and past tenses, but in the future I’m planning to add additional charts for the others.

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? Let me know!
