Do you want to get back to your roots or are you just visiting Croatia for the holidays? Or do you wish to teach your children the language of your ancestors? Then look no further! I am an actress with the Masters Degree in acting and I will teach you how to properly speak and pronounce Croatian. I have been teaching and volunteering for a long time and I can make learning what seems to be a difficult language for some, to be fun! We will also be learning conversational Croatian in a standard accent, grammar, writing, creative writing if your language skills are advanced. Learn how to have a casual or a business conversation, learn tricks that will make your stay in Croatia feel like you are home. About me I am a native Croatian speaker with MA in acting and I have training in voice, speech and writing. Languages are my passion and a hobby. I moved to Los Angeles 9 years ago and I love comparing languages and culture. Along with Croatian and English I also speak Italian and German and I recently started learning Spanish. Croatia is a small but gorgeous country with about 4 million people. But it has so many accents that northern part like Varazdin and southern part like Dubrovnik have totally different accents. We could roughly divide Croatian accents into three groups, using the word “What” which is said in three different ways. Sto (which is the standard used predominantly in East), Kaj (which is Zagreb and northern parts of Croatia) and Ca (used predominantly on the coastal part of Croatia). Depending on your level we will learn the standard Croatian accent which is Sto. If you speak advanced level of Croatian language we will learn and play with other accents as well. I want you to go out of my class with the realization that you learned something new. I believe that solely attending my classes is not enough, you will have to do your homework, as well. I learned other languages and I know that it can be overwhelming and it will look look like the more you learn the less you know, especially at the beginning. But that is a phase you must push through. Once you finally start to talk and form real sentences, for the joy of that feeling, believe me - hard work will pay off.

I’m delighted that I had the opportunity to become Mara’s student as early as I did. I’m inexplicably happy to see that Mara’s class is now finally offered at Take Lessons to all artists keen to learn and grow through the power of knowledge. I’m sure that Mara’s expertise, education, and mind-blowing screen and theater experience will bring so much value to future wholeheartedly dedicated students ready to explore the artistry of emerging through the character to become the one with the story. Mara taught me much, from studying the character and analysis of its emotional traits and motives to production processes with preparation for castings or brainstorming the representation reel and its structure and flow. As I progressed through the classes, my confidence in my performance grew incredibly, but it felt natural. I lost that weight of nervousness after 15 minutes of our first interaction. There were so many benefits of this class that it was impossible to put everything in a short review, and trust me, I could write pages and pages about the impact Mara had on me. I can reassure you that aside from learning about ac, I learned a lot about myself, which completes the person I want to become. I hope I brought my experience closer to you, and now that you have booked your first round of classes, I wish you all the best in your work and have fun, trust me, you won't lack that with Mara.
